The unprecidented strong arm Chicago style tactics being used by this administration have officially reached new lows.

When Joe Lieberman decided to vote against the health care horror Harry Reid is desperately trying to cram down our throats, democratic operatives decided that the best way to 'persuade' him was to go after his wife.

Hadassah Leiberman is a global ambassador for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.  Liberal activists are busily trying to recruit celebrities to force the Komen board to remove Hadassah from her position.  As of this posting, the foundation is refusing.  Now that Lieberman has come out for the bill the pressure will stop.

It disgusts me that it was applied at all.  I feel like we're in a Godfather film.  Nice wife ya got there, Joey - hate to see anything happen to her....

The other reprehensible thing that is going on in the name of 'health care reform' is in Nebraska.

Sen. Ben Nelson is being threatened with a military base closure if he doesn't vote for this boondoggle.  Am I the only one completely appalled by this threat, which would profoundly effect jobs, families and the finances of thousands of Americans?

This government is actively, knowingly attacking it's own citizens, threatening harm to them if their chosen representatives don't toe the democrat party line.  The democrats have hung a sword of Damocles over the American people's heads - they are ruling by the politics of fear. 

They aren't just using aversion therapy to get their way, however.  They are also trying to woo Nelson with the promise of a 'blank check', Mary Landrieu style. 

How are we the people going to pay every recalcitrant senator or representative hundreds of millions of dollars to buy their votes in the midst of economic collapse and 10% unemployment?  Won't that policy just encourage them to revolt in order to get extra 'sweeteners' so they can balance their bad votes with bribes of pet projects back home, hopefully ensuring reelection?

How much more of this can the American people take?

This administration is mortgaging our children's and grandchildren's futures in the name of legislation that is anything but 'free' (how can something that costs $2.5 trillion be considered free?!), promises to raise our taxes AND our insurance premiums, and will result in rationed care, overworked doctors and nurses and government intervention in every aspect of our lives.

Contact your senators today - stop the madness.
