The win by Republican Scott Brown for Ted Kenney’s seat has really stirred things up. The support requests are flying in like crazy. I find the dialogs really interesting.
From John McCain –
His victory sent a strong message that you and I have long known – Americans are furious with the liberal leadership in Washington. Their out of control spending and proposed takeover of health care are destructive to our country and we must continue to fight against it.
From Moms Rising –
The victory of Scott Brown in Massachusetts yesterday, an opponent of the healthcare reform bill, for the open U.S. Senate seat leaves the fate of healthcare reform uncertain. But while the politics of the debate have changed, the needs of real people for healthcare have not.
Tell your members of Congress to be strong and continue the fight for real healthcare reform:
For the last year, most Democrats in Washington have let lobbyists and corporate interests run roughshod over the people’s business. Wall Street got bailouts. Bankers got bonuses. Big Insurance rewrote the health care bill. Meanwhile, ordinary Americans continue to struggle to make ends meet.
But now, finally, Democrats know they need to change course to win back voters’ confidence. The question is, will they learn exactly the wrong lesson? Will they give up on change altogether? Drop health care reform? Follow the lead of conservatives like Joe Lieberman and Evan Bayh and embrace “Republican-lite”?
We need to make sure Democrats don’t get it wrong this time. It’s time to demand that they start truly fighting for working families. Pass real health care reform. Rein in Wall street. Take on the banks and special interests that stand in the way of change.
Personally, I think both sides have been full of bull – and I think this election has sent them all a wake-up call -Quit selling us out, or you’ll be joining us in the unemloyment lines bucko!
I know we’re all tired of hearing about it, and sometimes we just don’t feel like fighting anymore – but you have to keep raising your voice for what you believe in. Take every opporutnity for your voice to be heard. Make it really crystal clear that Congress Works for Us!
And not to sound like a broken record or anything – but the best way to reform health care is to get healthy. Believe me – they’re not fighting for your health, they’re fighting for your money. you’re worth a whole lot more money to them when you’re fat and sick. And you’re a lot easier to control once you’re trapped in the system.
