Massachusetts Resident? Get out and Vote for Martha on Tuesday!

I am returning to my blog today to ask all MA residents to please vote for Martha Coakley on Tuesday... Let us not allow Scott Brown destroy all the work that Ted Kennedy accomplished towards finally passing health care reform. Teddy wanted to make sure the children of this country have healthcare and accomplishing this was both his dying wish and just the right thing to do...And most of us don't need anyone to tell us that children deserve to be protected, that they deserve to have healthcare. But Scott Brown says on his website, "...I am opposed to the health care legislation that is under consideration in Congress and will vote against it. It will raise taxes, increase government spending and lower the quality of care, especially for elders on Medicare." What he doesn't say is that Medicare passed in 1965 despite staunch Republican opposition to that program too. That it is Republicans who dramatically increased government spending for most of the past decade. That you cannot lower the quality of care for the 86.7 million people who have no healthcare. To allow this senate seat to go to a person who is not willing to make healthcare reform a priority in the US today would be wrong...for all of us. Please make phone calls, vote on Tuesday, and remind others to do the same.
