    Obama Administration Awarded Hundreds of Thousands in Airport Grants to Stupak’s District Two Days Before Vote

    Was this Yet Another Backroom Deal to Force Obama’s Bill Down the American People’s Throats?

    Three airports in the district of infamous fence-sitting and ultimately kowtowing Democrat Bart Stupak were awarded $726,409 in grants by the Obama Administration just two days before a vote on Obama and Pelosi’s government takeover of healthcare.

    No, you fool, don't you get it yet? 2+2 is not four it is now five so just give it up and stop with these logical conclusions they are just plain leading you nowhere! :tongue3:

    Of course, if they really believe that it is going to get them votes.

    But lets just say, for the sake of argument, that this is 'working' in November and that fears are not realised?

    BTW, playing devil's advocate, could THIS be the result of the Stupak hold out?

    Most of the bill doesn't take effect for years.

    That is part of the design - sort of like putting a frog in a pot of water and slowly turning up the heat - we aren't supposed to notice the change.

    But in the end - we're cooked.

    No it isn't.

    Not even close.

    Was it usual politics that ushered in the Civil War? Name one other bill that was as divisive as the one signed yesterday, and resulted in 14 states filing suit to protect their citizens from an oppressive and overreaching federal government.

    Just one.
