It appears now that health care reform will pass soon, and before we know it America will fundamentally change because of it. Argue what you may, but this reform pressed on by Obama and his administration is an attack at the very liberty of America and its people.
One person, Bart Stupak, appeared to uphold his values of pro-life but everyone knew that he was just holding out for himself. Everyone knew that he would ultimately vote for it, simply because he could amend it later. So what did they do to appease him? Issue a White House Executive Order.
