I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Health care isn’t a right, it’s a privilege.
The left, however, tends to disagree with that statement.
Massachusetts is perhaps the bluest state in the nation. Liberals practically pour from the cracks of the sidewalk in Boston. Keep in mind that the last Republican senator from Massachusetts was Edward Brooke, who was elected to the last of his two terms in 1972. Finally, this was the seat vacated by the liberal God Teddy Kennedy.
Let’s outline what went down with this special election in Massachusetts:
- The Democratic candidate Coakley was up 30 points in the polls in September of 2009.
- The Republican candidate Brown campaigned on the promise of voting NO on the current health care bill and on the financial reform bill. The voters of Mass. knew what they were getting.
- Brown started to pick up steam in the polls, and the mainstream media caught on.
- Coakley vacationed in the Caribbean from December 23rd until just after the new year. In the meantime, Brown was busy working the campaign trail.
- On Tuesday, January 19th 2010 Brown takes an early lead in the election.
- Coakley — knowing that she lost — calls Brown to concede just two hours after the polls close.
- Brown wins the upset of the century, disrupts the Democrat super-majority, and puts a huge damper on getting health reform passed.
The voters of Massachusetts have spoken.
“Stop with the backroom, closed-door and smoke-filled room deals (Nebraska and Louisiana, anyone?) and do what the people want, Obama.”
If a Republican can win in Massachusetts — and take the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat at the same fucking time — they can win anywhere.
This was a direct vote against the shitty health care bill. 56% said that the reason they voted for Brown was because of health care.
In one single vote, they’re saying “Fuck Your Health Care Reform.”
And, I am too. Fuck your health care, liberals.
I pay for mine, you pay for yours.
