For far too long, Bart Stupak (D-Menominee, MI) has been lying - lying about his association with C Street, and lying about Senate health insurance reform legislation coming out of the Senate.

It's time to blow the lid off this cheap schemer and send him and those he misdirects straight to hell with three paragraphs sourced below.

Why does he do this? Cheap-ass politics, and lies are the easiest way to crawl into the Republican fold among the rural working class and the uninformed.

This man is a dangerous charlatan, a liar who has been refuted over and over as a LIAR! He should be primaried. We need to see him expelled!

...none of the 1,250 Federally Qualified Health Centers, or FQHCs, that would receive the billions in money through the reform bill offer abortion services. These federally regulated community health care centers were started as part of the War on Poverty in the 1960s to provide primary and preventative care to poor communities across the country. The Senate health care bill would provide money to allow them to serve an estimated 15 million more people who do not have adequate health care.

As the National Association of Community Health Centers said in a statement this week, none of the health centers receiving money under the Senate bill "provide abortions to any of their patients, and we are not aware of any that have ever done so." In addition, the statement said that "Health centers do not plan to, nor are they seeking to, become providers of abortion. On the contrary, last year health centers provided prenatal, perinatal, and post-natal/post-partum care to 1 of every 8 children born in the U.S."

The federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has also said that none of the health centers are abortion providers, and none of them are operated by Planned Parenthood.


...while manyorganizations(including hospitals, nursing homes and others) usethe term "health center" in their name, under federal law the term "Community Health Center" is not generic. It is a 45-year-old federal program with strong bipartisan support. Our mission has always been to provide preventive health-care services that restore health, reduce chronic disease and keep down health-care costs. That is why the Community Health Centers program consistently draws the highest ratings of any federal program.

The community health center funding increases proposed by the president would not go "further than the Senate bill on abortion." To the contrary, they would expand much-needed primary health care—not abortion services—to communities most in need across the country.

[my emphasis]

This ought to work as a cautionary tale to other DINOs and ConservaDems throughout our country: YOU LIE, AND WE WILL CALL YOU OUT!
