Yesterday I wasn’t too impressed with Neugebauer. I thought he was going squishy with his apology to that sucker Stupak for the “baby killer” outburst. Today, I have newfound respect for the man.
The left was starting their usual drumbeat of faux righteous indignation and demanding Neugebauer apologize for his outburst on the House floor. So he made this video and contacted Eric Erickson at Red State with this statement:
I am , the Congressman who said the Democrat’s health care bill is a baby-killer. Now, that I apologize for it. I think Red State is a good place to respond to that request, and Erick Erickson was kind enough to allow me to do so.
While the floor of the House was the wrong place to shout out my objection, the fact remains that this legislation will kill babies. And yet, in the face of bi-partisan opposition, Democrats passed the bill anyway.
We now have a clear mission. We must fight like the lives of our children depend upon it. They do. I will fight to repeal this bill. Will you?
Neugebauer also made a statement to Hot Air:
I am Randy Neugebauer, the Congressman who said the Democrat’s health care bill is a baby-killer. Hot Air has graciously allowed me to respond to the vicious attacks that have been launched against me for defending the lives of the unborn.
You know, the recent “Louisiana Purchase” and “Cornhusker Kickbacks” in the health care bill were backroom deals about money. Those are offensive enough, but what happened late Sunday was far worse. It is one thing to make backroom deals for money, but on Sunday, Democrats traded the lives of unborn children so they could make a deal on their legislation. I was outraged that this bill would be a baby killer. Democrats are outraged that I said that out loud.
Well, here is something else I will say out loud: This baby-killer of a bill must be repealed.
I here by take back everything I said about Neugebaur yesterday and will send this true defender of life a check. Way to go Randy!
