Union Goons Threaten Blue Dogs

What kind of people want ObamaCare to pass? Thugs, unsurprisingly:

Centrist Blue Dog Democrats are "making a big mistake" by not backing President Obama's healthcare reforms, Teamsters President James P. Hoffa threatened Wednesday.
"They're a whole new phenomenon," Hoffa said of the centrist Democrats who have been reluctant to back a healthcare bill containing certain taxes and a public (or "government-run") option for consumers.
"A lot of these people we supported, and I think they're making a big mistake by not supporting the president," Hoffa added during an appearance on the liberal Bill Press radio show.

Hopefully no Congressmen end up in the Detroit River wearing concrete galoshes.

Aggressive expansion of government power only benefits the bad guys, as these union goons confirm. Those Dems who haven't completely gone off the rails into Obamapelosiland have a clear choice: hoods or their constituents.
