  • I'll be keeping an eye on them ;) I don't think they will make or break any issue, but we'll see.

  • I don't think they will make or break any issue

    It makes or breaks a very specific one. If Coakley wins, there is no roadblock to the healthcare bill. If Brown wins, the dems can no longer block a filibuster and lose a crucial vote. The question is, if Brown wins, will the dems tie it up in challenges and court battles until after they can have the vote. As long as the seat is contested, they're safe. If there's someone there with an (r) their jobs get much more difficult.

    If Brown wins, which I doubt he will, Reid will go to the house and make the win as the reason they need to pass the Senate version of the bill.  The health care bill isn't as dependant on a Dem winning MA's seat as the media is making it out to be.

  • I hope Brown wins but don't think Dems will allow him to be sworn in before they vote on the healthcare non reform. They are scrambling now to figure out how to stop this if he wins. If he wins and the Dems are honest and let him have his seat without drama there is hope for the majority of Americans who do not want this HealthCare crap. I want reform but real reform not more government intervention.

  • I'm pulling for Brown. I thought it was interesting to hear the heckling during the pres.'s speech yesterday. He pulled out one of his old campaign speeches and inserted her name. It sounded like the past year didn't even happen. After the stump for her, Brown's numbers went up. Wonder whose fault this loss will be? They blamed everyone but the man on the moon after the loss in VA.
