These are samples of materials being sent to elected officials, local newspapers, nursing homes, hospitals and other places in the Senate districts of the "Hell No Caucus," the Terrible 10 threatening to take down the government rather than allow 267,000 people to continue to have health insurance coverage under the Medicaid expansion provided by Obamacare.

According to a source who provided them to me, the messages will have personal angles where possible, as with Sen. Bledsoe's husband and son in state employment.

Helpful? Don't know. It might bring some senators around to the idea of requiring financial disclosure of people responsible for messages that could be viewed as electioneering.
