Former Erie Congresswomen Kathy Dahlkemper just can’t seem to contain herself, insisting on parading her stupidity.
The Weekly Standard, picked up on a press release fired off by the oxymoronically named Democrats for Life of America, denouncing the Obama administration’s decision to force religious institutions like Catholic schools and other institutions to pick up the tab for employee contraceptives under the Obamacare health care reform plan, which has Dahlkemper claiming that she would not have voted for the bill had she known this would be the outcome.
"I would have never voted for the final version of the bill if I expected the Obama Administration to force Catholic hospitals and Catholic Colleges and Universities to pay for contraception,” said Dahlkemper. "We worked hard to prevent abortion funding in health care and to include clear conscience protections for those with moral objections to abortion and contraceptive devices that cause abortion. I trust that the President will honor the commitment he made to those of us who supported final passage."
The story has been picked up by the Drudge Report and the Blaze, leading to reader comments calling Dahlkemper stupid, lazy, incompetent, naïve and worse.
I find it odd that it wasn’t that long ago that Ms. Dahlkemper proclaimed publicly how proud she was of her vote for the Obamacare bill because she helped to author the part of the virtually unread bill that extended parental healthcare coverage to offspring to 26 years old. Now she suddenly came to the realization that she had been played like a cheap fiddle by Obama and his minion Nancy Pelosi just to get her vote.
Maybe it’s time for Ms. Dahlkemper to come to grips with the fact that voters sent her packing largely based on her Obamacare vote and to borrow a line from heavy metal poets Motley Crue, “don’t go away mad, just go away.”
