Dad threatened after blasting congressman

Wanted assurance Obamacare would care for handicapped son Posted: August 10, 2009 9:44 pm Eastern © 2009 WorldNetDaily An irate Michigan father worried over what Obamacare would do to his handicapped adult son reports he was threatened after trying to get a direct answer from Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., and has a warning of his own for those who made the threats. "I will use every means available to me, lethal force if necessary, to protect [my son] and my wife. My wife is terrified," Mike Sola told Fox News today. Meanwhile, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., was confronted by some pointed questions at a town hall meeting of her own, including one referencing the ongoing dispute over President Obama's refusal to allow public access to his original long-form birth certificate, which probably could establish his eligibility to be president. In an interview with Fox (click on this link to see the video), Sola explained how he took his wheelchair-bound adult son to the front of the room to confront Dingell, 83. Sola said he demanded information about what Obamacare would provide for his son, and Dingell responded with a statement that there is an amendment to address the needs of the handicapped. However, Sola said that amendment doesn't exist. The controversy erupted just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed in a commentary that those who object vocally to the health care plan are "un-American." "I was trying to speak as an American in a free country with a right of freedom of speech," Sola said. Then he said that "thugs" already have located his home and delivered a threat, although he did not detail its contents. He said it had been reported to police. Sola said he would "take the risk of going to prison" if the threats were repeated. [READ COMPLETE STORY]
