Massachusetts Takes The Lead......

This enormous win by Scott Brown was not a win for the Republican Party, but
the tip of a spear that will change the course of the political landscape for years
to come. This election is a referendum of poor policy choices and a complete breakdown of ethical and political decorum. Our institutions work best when there is
dialog and compromise among the parties and the people. Even with a 60 vote majority
in the Senate the democrats seem to be more interested in biased media coverage
than hammering out comprehensive Health-Care Reform. No one would deny change is
greatly needed to curtail the spiraling cost of coverage. But by no means did the
urgency of this Bill make it necessary to exclude the minority party from the debate.
After all we do live in a democracy, not a dictatorship.
