I found this to be very funny:
Lynn Raskin, a Washington D.C. realtor, and her husband, Marcus, a cofounder of the Institute for Policy Studies, have routinely contributed to progressive candidates in tight congressional races during this election cycle. They’ve donated to Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.), Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), and Elizabeth Warren, the Democrat running for Senate in Massachusetts. They’ve also given money to Sen. Sherrod Brown(D-Ohio).
Late Saturday evening, Raskin typed “Sherrod Brown” into Google to make another campaign contribution. She clicked the first link populating her search results, a Google ad that took her to an innocuous-looking campaign fundraising page. She entered her Visa digits, hit submit, and just like that, she’d forked over $50 to a Republican in one of this season’s most hotly contested Senate races: Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts.
Raskin realized her mistake the next day when she read the automated thank-you email from Scott Brown’s campaign. She says she takes “full responsibility for not paying attention” when she clicked on Scott Brown’s Google ad, but she still feels like she was duped. After all, why should a search for Sherrod Brown, Ohio Democrat, bring up an ad for Scott Brown, Massachusetts Republican?
I tuned into a number of Liberal outlets last night and this morning. Of course, the subject of the conversation is the victory in Massachusetts. Now, this is politics, so to listen to them spin this is expected, they HAVE to do that. Literally, it’s their job. And in this, the Republicans would be spinning in the same way had Brown lost.
But, what I heard the most last night and so far this morning is that the reason Massachusetts voted against this National Health Care is that they already have their own. And because they already have their own, why would they wanna pony up, tax themselves to provide a plan they already have? So, according to the Left, this isn’t a referendum on Health Care, it’s a case of not wanting to pay for something they already have.
This tactic is clever. It allows the Left to sidestep the referendum AND claim that Massachusetts really REALLY likes government provided health insurance.
I think the Left is wrong.
I think Massachusetts voted against Health care because they don’t like their version of it.
Massachusetts’ health law has had a smaller impact on insurance coverage levels and a much higher cost than supporters claim. Gains in coverage have been overstated by nearly 50 percent, while costs have been understated by at least one-third, and likely more. The law has done little to improve overall self-reported health, though it does
appear to have crowded out private health insurance and made Massachusetts a less attractive place to relocate, particularly for young people.
People view taxes as damage and route around it.
The Lootiest of the Looters, Massachuesettss, has decided that even they, even THEY, can’t abide what we are seeing.
BOSTON – In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to win the U.S. Senate seat held by the late Edward M. Kennedy for nearly half a century, leaving President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul in doubt and marring the end of his first year in office.
Let the Correction begin!
