Scott Brown has captured the “Kennedy seat” in Massachusetts

In one of the most shocking turnabouts in modern political history, GOP underdog Scott Brown has single-handedly captured the so-called “Kennedy seat” in Massachusetts, wiped out the Democratic supermajority in Congress, and pushed the president’s Obamacare agenda to the very brink of a stunning defeat.

Sen. Webb: Suspend All Healthcare Votes

Sen. Webb Released a statement late Tuesday evening acknowledging that the only way for Congress to begin to regain its credibility with the American people is to suspend all consideration of healthcare until Sen.-elect Scott Brown of Massachusetts can be seated.

Earlier, Democrats had openly discussed delaying its certification of Brown’s election, to give the Obama administration time to strong-arm a healthcare compromise through the Senate.

Webb’s statement, and the scope of Brown’s win over Democrat Martha Coakley, would appear to make it highly unlikely that such foot-dragging would be tolerated even by Senate Democrats. SOURCE

Mass. Loss Costs Obama Votes to Propel Healthcare

A stinging loss Tuesday in Massachusetts has cost President Barack Obama and the Democrats the 60-vote Senate majority they’ve relied on to push a historic healthcare overhaul to the verge of enactment.

Now what? It’s miles of bad road in any direction.

Obama and party leaders anxiously worked through fallback options —none good SOURCE

Good news for the American people to wake up to!

Brown Gives Rousing Victory Speech

Chants of “Go Scott Go!” reverberated at Scott Brown headquarters Tuesday night as the newest Republican elected to the U.S. Senate gave a rousing acceptance speech.

“I bet they can hear this cheering all the way in Washington, D.C.!” Brown said, following his victory over Democrat Martha Coakley. “I hope they’re paying close attention, because tonight the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken.” SOURCE

When will the democrats and Obama start listening to the people? 4 elections now and 4 republican wins should be a strong message to Obama to stop the non-sense or his turn will come in 2012 to pack his bags and move out of the White House! Looks as if he will throw a bunch of democrats under the bus and packing for home in Nov, 2010!

A panicky White House plans to salvage health care if Scott Brown wins Massachusetts

Pictures speak louder than words

A panicky White House and Democratic allies scrambled Sunday for a plan to salvage their hard-fought health care package in case a Republican wins Tuesday’s Senate race in Massachusetts. SOURCE

Obama was stumping in Massachusetts today for Martha Coakley whom in the past year said that there where no more terrorist in Afghanistan. This blogger thinks that Obama is hurting Coakley more than helping her because of his lying to the American people and has kept very few of his promises. How can the people trust anything he says? Obama does not get it, he has lost his halo and his ratings are falling fast. Many democrats has decided not to seek re-election and hanging up their hat back at home and Obama is the reason they say! Harry Reid is in trouble as so many other democrats are so why should they keep voting for Obama’s unwanted agenda  to turn America into a socialist country. No matter where a Republican or a Democrat wins the Liberal State of Massachusetts a near win by Republican Scott Brown will send the democrats a message that if they vote for the health care bill they will no longer have a job come November!

Massachusetts sales tax increase takes effect, small businesses in Massachusetts will take a big hit

The law increasing the Massachusetts sales tax from 5- to 6.25-percent has entered into effect.

Lawmakers said the extra revenue gained from the tax increase was needed to prevent deeper budget cuts.

Some worry that small businesses in Massachusetts will take a big hit in the competitive field of retail sales, with a tax-free New Hampshire close by.

“Five percent was bad enough and we would have to compensate the difference in our margin of profit. But now we’re going to have to start eating more of our profit in order to take care of our own customers,” Dick Dube said.

Massachusetts and California were the only two states to raise the sales tax in during this tough economic year.
