Two Questions for Bart Stupak (R-MI)

I Have Two Questions for Bart Stupak (R-MI)?  And, maybe the good folks in Michigan's First Congressional District may also want to know the answers!

1.  Who was subsidizing your rent while you were living large at the C Street Church's love den dormitory?

2.  Why do you want to deny the following health care reform measures to the folks that sent you to Washington, D.C.?

In Rep. Stupak’s district, the health care reform bill will:

Improve coverage for 364,000 residents with health insurance.

Give tax credits and other assistance to up to 197,000 families and 17,900 small businesses to help them afford coverage.

Improve Medicare for 141,000 beneficiaries, including closing the donut hole.

Extend coverage to 44,000 uninsured residents.

Guarantee that 10,000 residents with pre-existing conditions can obtain coverage.

Protect 1,100 families from bankruptcy due to unaffordable health care costs.

Allow 50,000 young adults to obtain coverage on their parents’ insurance plans.

Provide millions of dollars in new funding for 41 community health centers.

Reduce the cost of uncompensated care for hospitals and other health care providers by $102 million annually.
