The Conservadem Senators are vowing to kill the bill unless House Democrats labor and roll over on all major issues:

Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) and Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) have made clear there is little room to deviate from the bill the Senate passed on Christmas Eve.


Centrists have said they will not vote for a healthcare reform bill that imposes a tax surcharge on the nation's highest income earners or reduces the tax burden on so-called Cadillac health insurance plans, which are held by many unionized workers.

Landrieu says FU to union workers:

"I can only support a bill if the Cadillac plans are taxed at the level they are in the Senate [bill,]" said Landrieu. "It's not because I'm thrilled about taxing those plans, which I'm not, but it is the No. 1 cost-containment measure in the bill. It's what is going to drive costs down over time."

And Lincoln demands that the House not make any real improvements:

Lincoln also said she has great concern. "If it moves very much at all from where we are, it's going to be hard," she said.

That's the Merry Christmas from the Gang of 3, and we know Lieberscum will join them.

One thing I know is that I will do all I can to defeat Blanche Lincoln's reelection. ALL. That is My Number 1 Political Priority in 2012. And I think the AFL-CIO and SEIU will be helping.

Until we make examples, these people will working people with impunity.

Here's how to start defeating Lincoln:
