Stupak’s “Pro-Life” Caucus $4.7 Billion in Earmark Funds after Voting for Public Funding of Abortion

Posted by iusbvision on March 28, 2010

The myth of the pro-life Democrat continues…

The Sunlight Foundation (hat tip HotAir):

A day after Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., and ten other House members compromised on their pro-life position to deliver the necessary yes-votes to pass health care reform, the “Stupak 11” released their fiscal year 2011 earmark requests, which total more than $4.7 billion–an average of $429 million worth of earmark requests for each lawmaker.

Of the eight lawmakers whose 2010 requests were available for comparison, five requested more money this week than they did a year ago: Rep. Jerry Costello, D-Ill., Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper, D-Pa., Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., Brad Ellsworth, D-Ind., and Rep. Charles Wilson, D-Ohio.

The eleven members were the focus of high level pressure by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats because they threatened to vote against the health care reform bill, which passed the House on Sunday, March 21, by a seven vote margin. Granting earmark requests are one of the ways leadership can encourage members to vote their way.

Stupak requested more than $578 million in earmarks, including $125 million for a replacement lock on the Sault Ste. Marie, $25.6 million to build a federal courthouse in Marquette, Mich., $15 million to repaint the Mackinac Bridge and $800,000 to preserve the Quincy Mining Company smelter near Hancock in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Democrats inciting violence against Republicans Part IV, more calls for the death of Beck, Limbaugh and O’Reilly – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on March 28, 2010

[Be sure to See Part I and Part II and Part III, Part V in progress. The other posts were getting so huge that I could not just keep updating them till they took up 5 feet of page space each, so time to start number four. Like the other three this will be continually updated – Editor]

UPDATE IILeft wing antisemite threatens life of GOP Congressman. Obviously this man was whipped up by the lies and false witness the elite media and the Democrats have been launching against Republicans. By the way, no Tea Party participants have been arrested or even credibly accused of violence, yet we have case after case as outlined in these four posts of violence against Tea Party participants and several arrests of SEIU Union/Obama HCAN thugs have been made, yet the elite media narrative says it is the Tea Party who is violent.

Mini Update – Suspect is a DNC donor! – LINK. Where is the elite media screaming from the walls now?

Politico:

 

Via Radio Equalizer:

“Liberal” radio talk host Mike Malloy hate against Beck, Limbaugh and O’Reilly:

 

Ann Coulter takes “I Hate Glenn Beck”  Joy Behar to school on hate speech and threats:

Joy Behar, “I am very excited to be a member of the I hate Glenn Beck club…”

Joy Behar could go to any known campus including Bob Jones and Hillsdale etc and be treated just fine and will not need a bodyguard. Any noted conservative or republican would need a bodyguard. In Canada hundreds of armed students tried to get to Coulter yelling “burn her book”. They don’t learn that stuff in high school folks.

 

Via NewsBusters: NY Times Paul Krugman: “Reagan the anti-government fanatic” & “By all means, hang Joe Liebermann in effigy”.

CNN smears the now famed conservative journalist/film maker James O’Keefe – LINK

Hate voice mail sent to Republican Congressman Jean Schmidt:

This is exactly what the elite media and the Democrat leadership is inciting with their racist and violent invective. Need they be reminded that the head of the Republican Party is a black man named Michael Steele? Do they actually believe that if Joe Biden were president and had done the exact same policies that the 62% of the American people who oppose what is going on would be all for it? Of course they don’t.

By the way, there were a dozen video’s that taped the so called “spitting event” and guess what, it didn’t happen as the video clearly shows. Andrew Breitbart has a $10,000 reward for proof that racial epithets and or spitting at people was done at the DC Tea Party. So far no takers.

More real left wing violence Via Powerline:

I attended the convention and remember the terrorist acts that were carried out by anti-Republican protesters very well. They threw bricks through the windows of buses, sending elderly convention delegates to the hospital. They dropped bags of sand off highway overpasses onto vehicles below. Fortunately, no one was killed.

UPDATEBricks thrown through GOP office windows in Charlottesville LINK:
Washington Post Staff Writer

Monday, March 29, 2010; B06

Bricks were thrown through windows of a Republican Party office in the Charlottesville area late last week in an act that seemed similar to incidents of political vandalism reported elsewhere.

The damage in Charlottesville was discovered Friday morning at the headquarters of the Albemarle County Republican Committee, committee vice chairman Eric Seitz said Sunday.

Seitz said two bricks came through windows at the party’s offices on Albemarle Square on Thursday night or early Friday. A third damaged a window of an office used by Virginia Del. Robert B. Bell (R-Charlottesville) in the same building, Seitz said.

Seitz said the building’s windows are made of “very thick” double-pane glass and probably required considerable force to smash.

Upon seeing the bricks inside, he said: “Wow. . . . Somebody was very angry.”

County police confirmed that windows were broken. They said Sunday night that no arrests had been made.

Personal Income Drops Across United States. Companies Rolling Back in the Face of Massive ObamaCare Taxes, Florida Unemployement at Record High

Posted by iusbvision on March 28, 2010

Companies are already talking about what rollbacks in pay and benefits they can offer in light of ObamaCare. Things continue to get worse.

Wall Street Journal:

Personal income in 42 states fell in 2009, the Commerce Department said Thursday.

Real Time Economics

How state personal income changed in 2009 from 2008.

Nevada’s 4.8% plunge was the steepest, as construction and tourism industries took a beating. Also hit hard: Wyoming, where incomes fell 3.9%.

Incomes stayed flat in two states and rose in six and the District of Columbia. West Virginia had the best showing with a 2.1% increase. In Maine, Kentucky and Hawaii, increased government benefits, such as unemployment insurance and Social Security, offset drops in earnings and property values.

Nationally, personal income from wages, dividends, rent, retirement plans and government benefits declined 1.7% last year, unadjusted for inflation. One bright spot: As the economy recovered, personal income was up in all 50 states in the fourth quarter compared with the third. Connecticut, again, had the highest per capita income of the 50 states at $54,397 in 2009. Mississippi ranked lowest at $30,103.

 

Florida Sun Sentinal

Florida‘s unemployment hit 12.2 percent in February, the highest rate on record, soaring past even the rates recorded in the 1973-1975 recession, the state work force agency said Friday.

February’s rate rose a 0.2 percentage point from the January revised rate of 12 percent. More than 1.26 million people are out of work in the state.

In South Florida, the unemployment rate remained nearly level in February with a month earlier, with Broward County at 10.8 percent compared with a revised 10.9 percent for January; Palm Beach County at 12.4 percent compared with a revised 12.5 percent; and Miami-Dade County at 11.2 percent, up from a revised 11.0 percent in January.

Unemployment in all three counties is still up significantly from the same month a year earlier, when the rates ranged from 8.0 percent to 8.3 percent.

Florida’s unemployment is now near the peak of 12.3 percent forecast for midsummer, according to Florida’s Economic Estimating Conference, a group of state labor experts. The comparable national unemployment rate is 9.7 percent for February.
