Blow Off National Defense for ObamaCare?

Ben Nelson (D-NE) has once again objected to the Senate's version of ObamaCare because it will force taxpayers to pay for voluntary abortions.

The White House is rumored to have threatened closure of a major USAF base in Nebraska unless Nelson falls into line.

Not just ANY military base...

Offutt Air Force Base is one of the nation's most critical command and control nodes, second to only to the National Military Command Center in the Pentagon. The base's hardened facilities, designed to withstand a nuclear blast, are so optimized to support leadership during a national emergency that Offutt's underground command bunker was President Bush's command center of choice during the 9/11 attacks. It also serves a direct link between President Obama and the nation's nuclear forces, as Offutt houses the nation's Primary Alerting System, satellite and radio transmitter/receivers used in nuclear command and control functions, and our fleet of airborne command centers, which are designed to ensure the continuation of civilian and military leadership after a national disaster or military attack. This is arguably the most important military installation in the continental United States.

Not that Rahmsputin cares...
