If anyone out there was wondering what the price of Bart Stupak's immortal soul might have been it seem that we now have an answer thanks to our friends at Code Red:
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.
Did Stupak compromise his supposed principled stand against taxpayer funding of abortion in exchange for taxpayer dollars for pet projects?
Alpena County Regional Airport received a $85,500 grant, but had only 7,519 passenger boardings in 2008 (the most recent year for which there is information) according to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) data. Alpena County Regional Airport serves fewer passengers than even the late Rep. John Murtha’s famous “Airport for Nobody.”
Delta County Airport has even less customers than that, but still received a $179,209 grant.
Chippewa County International Airport received a $461,700 grant, but had only 13,733 passenger boardings in 2008.
Will Stupak come clean about this apparent backroom deal for his vote?
Call Stupak’s district office at (989) 356-0690 and ask.

From a moral standpoint the only difference between a courtesan earning a seven figure income entertaining billionaires and aristocrats and a street whore selling 20 dollar blowjobs in West Hollywood is the price.
If Mary Landrieu sold herself for 300 million what does that make Stupak and his 700 thousand?
One thing that is as certain as the rising and setting of the sun is that if this socialized medicine scheme stands Democrats will eventually have it covering elective abortions.
I wonder how much ice water Stupak thinks that three quarters of a mill will buy in hell?
