The Conservadem Senators are vowing to kill the bill unless House Democrats f.ck 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.

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 f.ck working people with impunity.

Here's how to start defeating Lincoln:
