Who decided that Massachusetts is the be all and end all of the Republic? It sure wasn't me. I, like TENS OF MILLIONS of voters voted in two GENERAL NATIONAL elections for Democrats and reform.
Now, because a bunch of wanker pundits have a juicy two week story to bloviate about, me and million of others who do not have health care can mark a few more years off our lives. Well, I am sorry Barney Franks and Weiner (perfect name) and the rest of you clowns, one godamn election in Massachusetts does not change for one minute the simple fact that BOTH houses of the our National Legislature voted for and passed Health Care Reform. When they did so, all fifty states participated. Theses Representatives and Senators were duly elected in National Elections taking place over the span of four years. Now, all of that Democracy and all of those millions of votes are what? A joke? Something so far in the past it doesn't matter anymore? Who says so? A bunch of Mass jackasses? Pundits? Republicans? Since when are they running the show? Here is what I, and what a lot of voters expect. Pass Health Care Reform by next week, sign it, and shove it up the Republicans butts at the State of the Union. Pass Financial Reform, Cap and Trade, and a great big jobs bill. Then, by summer when the stimulus really kicks in, and the pissyness is subsiding -- and in November when all the Republicans get is few token gains -- AND then in 2012 when their reign of terror is permanently destroyed, then tell me how important Massachusetts is. Not much.
