It doesn't matter whether you are red or blue because the Massachusetts' election should make you stop and think. Why the hell would a state give up Ted Kennedy's seat (of 40 years!) to a Republican? Why would they do that when they knew Kennedy wanted health reform as his lasting legacy? Why would a heavy Democratic state turn away from President Obama? This election of Scott Brown could be the silver bullet to kill the health reform beast and the people of Massachusetts are responsible. Without judging them, as others will get paid to do that, I am just pointing out what a big deal this really is. It is in my humble opinion that this election is less about politics and more about the people of Massachusetts hating their own costly Commonwealth Care plan which is a "mini-me" of what is to come nationally. It doesn't work well (not enough primary care docs, etc.) and it is bankrupt. The administration needs to stop having their secret meetings with the unions and figure this out or we are going back to 1994 again when reform was stonewalled.
