In case you haven't heard and may not hear, from the major newsworks, President Obama is getting desperate to get his healthcare plan through the Senate. Word is out that he is making more than serious threats to senators if they do not weight-in on his side of "the plan".
Tom Sullivan on the radio announced that news was leaked to certain people that President Obama had threatened (conservative) Democrat Senator, Ben Nelson of Nebr. Obama said he would shut down Offut AFB, our nation's Strategic Air Command Headquarters Office, in Nebraska, if Nelson does not vote in favor of the healthcare plan! Isn't this blackmail or just plain coercion ? Can the president get around the law when it comes to a criminal act such as Blackmail?
There are probably 10,000 jobs at that AFB, not to mention what it would do to the small businesses dependent on the AFB. It was embedded in the middle of the nation for security reasons. This will affect all Americans if Obama could manage to carry out this threat!
I suggest that everyone get busy on the phone, e-mail, fax or snail-mail or any other contact with Senator Nelson's office to offer
support for his continued opposition to the healthcare plan
And I also suggest that we contact the Whitehouse to voice our opposition & outrage of this type of activity by President Obama. We know his
staff will deny this but we cannot let him get by with this.
The third thing we need to do is spread the word to let others know, in case the major news people, working together with the President, try to snuff this information.
WE are well aware of Whitehouse staff plays childish games by naming the opposition in an attempt to put them down, such as they have done so far - Teabaggers, Birthers, Flat Earthers, etc.. Just remember, "Sticks and Stones will break my bones but names will never hurt us!"
We cannot let the "leader" of our nation continue down this road of tyranny, threatening elected officials, to endanger the security of our nation to get his healthcare plan in place! Take action, don't be imtimidated!
