Are the Democrats willing to sell out a portion of our national security in order to obtain the votes needed to cram the government health care bill down the throat of the American people? According to Michael Goldfarb of the Weekly Standard magazine, it appears that may be the case.
According to Goldfarb's source at the Capitol, holdout Dem Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska is being threatened by the Senate leadership and White House officials with having Nebraska's Offutt Air Force Base closed down. Offutt contains the headquarters for the U.S. Strategic Command.
Offering Louisiana Senator Mary Landreiu a gob of taxpayers' money in exchange for her vote is bad enough, but this threatened closure of a vital Air Force Base, if true, is beyond the pale.
Well, didn't Nancy Pelosi say just the other day that she would "do anything" to get the Cramdown passed?
Good Day to You, Sir
