  •  Lynch's record (8+ / 0-)

    Like I said over on your blog,

    Lynch was the only member of Congress from New England to vote against the health care reform bill. Last year, he voted in favor of Bart Stupak's deceptive ban on insurance for abortion. Of the 49 Democrats from New England + New York, 45 voted against that, and Lynch was one of the 4 who supported it.

    I've been frustrated with him for a long time, especially since he voted for the Iraq war, and continued to support funding it, and in 2006 he was the only member of the Massachusetts delegation to vote with the Republicans to "stay the course".

    He expressed concern about the cost of the economic recovery & reinvestment act, and about the cost of health care access, but I don't recall him being so concerned about the cost of invading Iraq. Is that a better use of our money, than our own infrastructure, education, and health?
