    Hopefully this will be a wake up call to all the politicians that the American people will not be forced into any idiotic programs that border on violating our constitution. The Dem's are trying to force a health care plan on the citizens (a majority of the people) don't want. If they are going to fix health care start with the problem. FIX THE COST'S.

    It's too bad we, in Massachusetts couldn't have elected someone who would have been at least a decent successor to Kennedy... that goes for Coakley and Brown

    There goes any hope people with preexisting conditions will ever have access to medical insurance. Unless someone has lost a job and insurance, they have no idea how important it is to have access to insurance. The GOP is a very self-centered group of people.

    If you cast your mind back to the Presidential election we'd be watching Anderson Cooper using the lame smart board to profess victory.

    89% reported and a 6% margin? Call it already...

  13. Dodd Democrat...

    THANK YOU Massachusetts......for doing the right thing.

    My fellow Democrats IN WASHINGTON need to wake up and realize that the majority of Americans DO NOT want this Health Care Bill.

    That means, Democrats, Republicans and Independents.....we DO NOT WANT THIS HEALTH CARE BILL!!!!!!!

    It`s backlash from Barack Obama`s bad policies. People are starting to understand that he doesn`t know what he`s doing. That and the fact most of these Democrats are just as clueless as the gop

    Yeay! Now we can put aside big government high tax healthcare reform and do some serious moderate healthcare reform......

    eliminate pre-existing exclusions
    serious medical malpractice reform
    allow reimportation of drugs from canada
    let insurance companies operate across state line
    Train more doctors, nurses, PT, OT etc

    Let's do this much, see what happens and re-address healthcare in 2 years.

    It is a sad day today for America that Scott Brown has taken the race. He is a wolf in sheeps clothing. I am especially sad that Edward Kennedy's years he spent in the Senate and representing his state, has come to this. The one issue he tried to get passed all these years, has probably been lost by this election.

    This win confirms that Obama will be a one-term president, and that SecState Clinton will soon resign to run against him...

    The Democrats have gotten what they wanted--universal healthcare is dead and they didn't have to put their spineless, gutless selves on the line in order to see it through completion.

    Republicans always win, when they win and even when they lose as you can very well see. Democrats do not know how to win because they do not want to. They want to sit on the sidelines and complain. It is so safe that way.

    I feel so sorry for the poor and the uninsured. Democrats, (with control of the White House and super majorities in the House and Senate) by stalling, in-fighting, bickering and looking out for themselves and the rich, have let you down.

    As a Candian living as a permanent resident in this amazing nation I am thrilled that the democrats no longer have the green light to take America down the path to socialized medicine. Long lines, unbelievable waiting periods, shortage of doctors, red tape beyond belief all would have awaited the US if they adopted the health care plan outlined by Obama and the Democrats. I do not have a vote here so I want to thank those who voted for Brown!

    IF the Brown win is a reflection of the angst over health care, how is it that the residents of MA are not in an uproar over its health care reform?

    MA has mandated health insurance... a stroke of genius if you ask me. How do we cover everyone? Oh, force them to buy it. Brilliant. Now we have the highest premiums in the country and can't afford to cover everyone.

    Revolution! Revolution! Simply revolution! Well, Obumie and Democrupts do not care, because they will continue push their socialist agendas down American people's throats. If they do, let's throw out these socialists next election!
