    about his reasons for voting no. He now says he voted no because it had no public option - a very valid complaint - but he was booed off the stage at a healthcare rally on Boston Common in September 2009 because he was the only Massachusetts Democrat who didn't support the public option. That alone cost him the chance to run, with union backing, in the special election won by Scott Brown.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

      I was stunned when I read that he said that he opposed ACA because it had no public option because I was sure he had been one of that extreme minority of Dems who had actually opposed the public option when we desparately needed to buck up that!
