It shouldn’t be this close, but it is – a real nail-biter in tomorrow’s Senate race in Massachusetts.
Whoever wins will fill the shoes of Senator Ted Kennedy. And the LAST person to fill those shoes should be Republican Scott Brown. It’s not just that he’s a Republican. He’s the worst of the tea-bagger Republicans.
Brown stands against EVERYTHING Ted Kennedy was for, and for everything Kennedy fought all his life against. He’s for torture. He’s for big banks and against any bank fees. He’s for the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and against same-sex marriage. He’s anti-choice, even for victims of rape. He’s against health care and for the insurance companies. He doesn’t even provide health insurance for his own campaign workers.
Massachusetts has had some good Republicans leaders in the past. Like Senator Edward Brooke and even Mitt Romney. But Scott Brown is not one of them. He would be a disaster for the people of Massachusetts…
And for the entire country. Because he has pledged, not only to vote against health care reform legislation, but to support the Republican filibuster.
With Scott Brown in the Senate, there will be no health care reform this year.
With Scott Brown in the Senate, Democrats will lose big in November.
That’s how important it is.
And that’s my parting shot.
