WASHINGTON—Following President Obama’s speech on the state of the U.S. economy Thursday, House Republicans patronizingly approved an additional $400 in added fiscal stimulus and then sarcastically urged the nation to use the money to go fill in a pothole or fix a broken streetlight. “Knock yourselves out, America—don’t spend it all in one place,” House Speaker John Boehner told reporters, adding that he was absolutely certain the influx in funds would “rally your precious little markets” and “create jobs as far as the eye can see.” “Here’s your government spending, assholes. Only $1.4 billion more and you can get to work on one of those light rails you keep talking about.” Sources confirmed Boehner later threw a five-dollar bill onto the Capitol steps, saying, “While you’re at it, go buy yourselves a traffic cone.”

He’s the Congressman who has decided that stopping a woman from buying an insurance policy with her own money that covers abortions (i.e. the “Stupak Amendment) is more important than passing Health Care Reform. He’s willing to torpedo the whole shebang, including expanding Health Care for pre-natal care and children, is he doesn’t get to further restrict women’s reproductive choices.

Typical Republican, right?

Actually, no – he’s a Democrat and he’s leading the anti-choice crusade in Congress.

So what to do?

Well, if you have family in his district who are politically active, you can harangue, beg and plead for them to find a credible candidate who is to willing to mount a serious primary challenge.

And it worked!

Yesterday Connie Saltonstall, a life-long northern Michigan resident and Democratic activist, declared her candidacy to challenge Bart Stupak in the Democratic Primary.

Here is a link to her webpage (basic as of now, but it’s only a day old).

I hope you will consider supporting Connie’s campaign. A link to her ActBlue page can be found in the upper right corner.

Please pass this along to anyone who you feel might be interested and supportive.

Thank you!
