The Unconstitutionality of the “Stupak” Executive Order

March 21, 2010

Bart Stupak and the rest of his “Stupak 12” just got hoodwinked by the President.  The President and the group agreed to an executive order stating that the “Hyde Amendment” which is voted on every year to forbid HHS Deparment funds from being used to fund abortions applies to the health care reform bill.  In return, the Stupak “12” agreed to vote for Health Care Reform.  But the President, acting alone, cannot enact this restriction without Congressional authorization.
