    if Sen. Nelson does not vote for the health care plan according to reports on the radio.

    Lierbaman is also under great fire.

    More Chicago style thuggery.

    I wonder if there is even one democrat with the guts to stick to their principles? One with the courage to tell the president and his thugs that their threats only harden their resolve?

    I doubt it.

    First I am not aware of an active BRAC commission currently.

    Second, when a base is on the final the BRAC list, it has went thru several rounds of consideration.

    Third, before the final list of BRAC bases is acted upon for closure, Congress must accept the list - on an all-or-nothing basis. In addition, the President must approve the list.

    So if the Republicans want to play tick for tat, they would make sure they get some bases in Illinois on that list - whenever BRAC is activated again.

    Administration says this is false and that those spreading it know it.

    Twenty senators have called for an investigation of this threat according to the radio this morning.

    He said this morning that he had two senators and two in media that have confirmed it. He got a note from the administration that attached all that are telling the story.
