You're Welcome, America


To all of the non-Massachusetts U.S. taxpayers out there reading--you're welcome! No doubt the Ds will still try to find a way to push through their unconstitutional, socialistic mess of a health bill, but at least (and at last) Massachusetts has done its bit to defend what's left of the Republic.

Go us!

Agreed! I was quite relieved to hear about his win on the news this morning!

OK, I haven't really been following the MA race but where does he stand on gay rights (marriage)? Abortion? I can't justify voting for someone because of a single issue - healthcare, even if it is the biggest expense outside of Social Security...

@Stacey: he is pro-life and is "personally" of the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman but thinks it should be up to individual states to decide marriage laws. At least that's what I have heard.

Love the blog, but respectfully disagree.

Awesome! I didn't know we were of one mind on this issue. YEAH!

Stacey -- Scott Brown has consistently voted against marriage equality, doesn't support the Transgender Hate Crimes Bill, opposes repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"...the list goes on and on. There are many of us in Massachusetts who are tremendously saddened by the election results. With respect to health care: Ned and Penny are extremely fortunate to have wealthy parents who can afford top-of-the line health insurance to address their needs. It is disappointing that efforts to expand health care access to parents and children who don't have the luxury of BigLaw salaries and benefits may have been derailed by yesterday's vote. Just my two cents.

Just to be clear - this was Husband's post, I try not to write about politics. I avoided coverage by watching American Idol which is truly a microsm of American society. I would say at least 2/3 of the 18-26 year olds were "unemployed". My personal feeling is that this was a one issue race (healthcare) and that MA is disenchanted about the high costs of our universal healthcare and worried about the proposed bills - we want more information, estimates and accountability. Taking away the filibuster proof majority ensures an unhappy compromise won't be shoved down our throats. But I agree something has to be done. Some great op eds in the Wall Street Journal today about why Brown won.

Glad you are happy with the outcome. I love your writing, but must strongly, but respectfully, disagree with you on this one.

Voted YES on defining marriage as one man and one woman. (Feb 2004)

Wow! Who knew this is coming from a in-law Jenki? Sounds like team-Williams to me. (but not me, I am the outcast in-law in my family, if this makes sense).
