Get rid of Obamacare, 2011 health care rates that have been announced are already taking a big jump because of this!

They said on tv the other night that Patrick is claiming there were 69,000 job created in this state since he was elected. But what he keeps forgetting is that more than that have been lost. As for Obamacare- It's going to hurt the seniors badly. And since I am one of them - I am not voting Democratic this time. Health care is a good idea - but not when it's so rushed that people get hurt.

A vote for Finegold is a vote for "more of the same". He's been on Beacon Hill for 15 years and, during one of the debates, he referred to himself as a "reformer" and "independent" (of the leadership) which is beyond laughable. He is good friends with Mayor Willy of Lawrence and worst of all, he's simply using the State Senate as a stepping stone for another run for the US Congress. His career path trumps any concern he might have for the voters of the district.

Maggie,

Please, never ever ever vote Democrat again. Please, understand, I voted that way when I was young and stupid. Now I vote anything but Democrat. It has become clear as day that the Democrats are only about the preservation of power for their party. You mean nothing to them and your troubles mean nothing to them.

PS Deval also forgets to mention that of the 69,000 most were temporary census workers and of course state employees. He is also leaving out the fact that the state lost 200,000 jobs during the same time.

Is Matt Sheehan for Jobs? Maybe he should get a job. Lead by example
