Consider My Cynicism Warranted
A few days ago I remarked upon the passage of the Healthcare Reform bill:
It passed the House with 219 for, 212 against. They clearly needed Stupak's vote, and I find myself wondering what they really gave him to get it, since the executive order BS is so weak, and he had so much leverage.Well, guess what headline I saw this afternoon:
After health care vote, Stupak 11 request billions in earmarksWith Stupak himself requesting over $578 million in earmarks, no less. [cough]vote buying[/cough] Some "most ethical congress in history."
