Let's start here:
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.
Separate, and independent, source here.
The math? Oh...well, Stupak got $726,409 big ones for his never-used airports in exchange for allowing Obama to use Federal dollars to kill babies...and we average 1.2 million of those executions per year. I just divided one by the other... I'm being generous-I expect that 1.2 million number will go up dramatically once everyone ELSE (you and I) will be paying for it.
Now, back in the day, even John Murtha got pretty airport fixups...but at least he sold out the American people for MUCH more. And...to Okinawa Jack's credit...he, at least, didn't sacrifice the unborn on the altar of Federal gluttony to get it done. Stupak got much less cash, but his body count will go beyond the pale. Bart's faux defense of the unborn notwithstanding, a few hundred thousand dollars just got offered up to make his conscience disappear...and pretty up a few of his OWN unused airports while you and I will now be made to PAY for the death Stupak just gave Obama permission to perpetuate.
It's ok though...at least we'll be discouraging people from getting artificial tans by taxing the hell out of them. I know, I know-we’ll kill babies along the way, but hey-at least the people we DON'T kill won’t be getting skin cancer without paying top dollar to do so.
There's that at least.
