    Apparently unions failed to mobilize for Coakley - or actively worked for Brown - in order to show their displeasure over taxing cadillac plans in the Senate HCR bill.

    This may well have been the deciding factor in the election.

    Of course, Brown will show his gratitude by voting for Becker, right?  He's an independent thinker, after all, not just another Republican stooge...

    Competent governance is just around the corner!

      "We won't wear steel-toes like the Republicans when we kick you" just isn't much of a motivator.

    •  Hat-Tip to Dems Maybe? (0+ / 0-)

      If Unions failed to mobilize for Coakley "in order to show their displeasure over taxing cadillac plans in the Senate HCR bill" maybe the Dems earned it.  Unions worked very hard to elect President Obama.  Want to guess what the number one issue we talked to our members about?  John McCain's plan to tax health insurance.
