I also appreciate your being candid about the tough decision. But this vote by the Massachusetts House is just the height of hypocrisy. After voting to deny Gov Romney the ability to appoint a Senator back in 2004, and then changing the law back to serve themselves is embarrassing…these people must have no shame.
What I really dislike is the fact that Washington pressured you and many of your peers to vote in such a partisan manner. I’d like to think that your constituents are more important than David Axlerod. The healthcare legislation that they are trying to push on us is ill-conceived. US House bill 3200 was not only purposely complex…it was also deceptive. They tried to ram this legislation through before people realized what was included. We don’t want government-run healthcare, that the CBO has already determined is not deficit neutral, and will result in rationed care. There is no way to add another 40+ Million people into the mix, and expect that the same level of care will be available. If they want bi-partisan support, they had better add tort reform to the mix.
