Louise Slaughter and Bart Stupak have received death threats.
A tea party participant published what he thought was Thomas Perriellos home address and urged disgruntled voters to drop by for a good face-to-face chat.

Good. They should be afraid.
Sorry. When you fight the American People, They fight back.
It’s always been this way, it will always be this way. What did they expect?
I think all of their addresses should be published. Let them suffer the consequences.
Guess they forgot what Jefferson said about the tree of liberty being watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It will only get worse, I predict. People are angry because these idiots refused to listen to us. Hell hath no fury like voters spurned.
Keep it up.
This is what happens when lawmakers don’t listen.
Yeah, and I recall Baldwin calling for Henry Hyde’s family to be killed on national tv. I don’t recall much outrage from Democrats.
I certainly don’t advocate harming anyone, however, protests in front of your representative’s home, when they clearly are not listening to you, is something they should expect.
It’s just getting started...
The country is hungry and the government says, “Let them eat cake.”.............
These vermin ain't seen nuthin’ yet. November is getting ever closer.
Didn’t Diehaus understand how much his constituency opposed the bill? Didn’t he know there would be a cost for choosing his party over his constituents? Did he buy the Democratic propoganda that the Tea Party is just a Republican equivalent of ACORN?
Tell it to Sarah Palin's children, scumbag.
They need to go back and read up on the Sons of Liberty and how that group reacted after the Stamp Act...
Interesting how the tin eared politicos passed the bill on the aniversary of the Stamp Act, btw....
Paging Dan Rostenkowski. Paging Mr. Dan Rostenkowski. Cleanup on Aisle 6.
Good post and GREAT tagline!
It was A-OK to make things “personal” when it involved Sarah Palin’s family. Now that the shoe’s on the other foot ...
As a senior in HS in 1972, I was called "baby killer" and other fine names during my last two months of HS. Why? I had the temerity to accept a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship.
I have never forgotten those last two months of HS.
