“When there’s trouble in Massachusetts, there’s trouble everywhere, and they know it,” Brown said Tuesday night.
If Mass is back lashing because of the economy and obamacare: the Dems better work fast because Nov is going to be a blood bath.
Washington woke up Wednesday to a new Senate make-up, one featuring Republican Massachusetts Senator-elect Scott Brown, who defeated Democrat Martha Coakley in a victory few thought possible just a month ago.
The race for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy is a win that could grind President Obama’s agenda to a halt and portend unexpected losses for Democrats in the November midterms.
What’s the point of laws that the law-makers themselves don’t understand? How can that possibily make the system better?
Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) speaks at a National Press Club luncheon. Speaking about health care reform legislation he said, “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

The GOOD news: Democrats lost some elections and a little overall momentum. The BAD news: we had to elect Republicans (Democrats Lite) to do it…
WASHINGTON — Republican gubernatorial wins in New Jersey and Virginia mark a troubling turn for President Obama, whose personal efforts couldn’t stop the fall of Democrats facing a voter backlash over the economy and a notable uptick in the government’s would-be role in people’s lives.
Obama’s 2008 victory in Old Dominion had marked an historic breakthrough for Democrats who hadn’t won Virginia’s electoral votes since 1964. The fight in the Garden State was more grueling than usually accompanies Democratic campaigns in the reliably blue state of New Jersey.

A shift has occurred since electing a liberal congress and president… will that effect policy or just the next election? (or nothing at all)
“Changes among political independents appear to be the main reason the percentage of conservatives has increased nationally over the past year: the 35% of independents describing their views as conservative in 2009 is up from 29% in 2008.” – Gallup
