We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Maybe, in time, Congress can come up with some reasonable fixes, like interstate insurance competition, some subsidies for the poor, encouragement of major medical policies, tort reform, disconnect insurance from employment, etc. But this monstrosity of a government takeover seems dead for now.
Thank you, Scott Brown - and thank you, Massachusetts.
Rather comical, the Dems have been flailing around with this thing all year, just when they're on the verge of passing it along comes Brown and blows them out of the water. As you said, thank you Scott Brown.
