According to an anti-choice web site they include, along with Bart Stupak:
Jerry Costello (D-IL), Kathy Dahlkemper (D-PA), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Steve Dreihaus (D-OH), Brad Ellsworth (D-IN), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Dale Kildee (D-MI), Dan Lipinski (D-IL), Jim Oberstar (D-MN), and Charlie Wilson (D-OH), Anh Cao (R-La, only Republican to vote for House healthcare bill),
Why are they hiding? Isn't our system of government supposed to be transparent?
If they have done nothing wrong why are they hiding?
Why are they part of secret pact to derail healthcare over abortion when both the House and the Senate bill state that they do not provide federal funding for abortion?
If they are using the power we gave them for the people like they swore they would, why are they acting like they have something to hide?
Really, why won't these politicians admit who they are?
Watch Oberstar, for example, waffle on whether he is part of the secret pact:
"On Thursday, Oberstar's office acknowledged that the congressman was very uncomfortable with the Senate bill's abortion language, but also said it's unclear who is on Stupak's list of 12. Stupak's office didn't return phone calls on Thursday."
Why are these Democrats against transparency in government?
Do they think we elected them to hide the workings of our government on one of the most important issues of our time?
If you voted for any of these people, I think it's time to contact their offices and let them know what you think about their actions. Just type their name into Google and their office will come up with a way to email and call them. Unfortunately, it's speak now or forever hold your peace on this issue.
