Hey Pagliuca, are you kidding me.
Passing healthcare at "all costs" is the problem with this foolishness.
We can not afford the dem's foolish attempts to force this pork ridden, socialist ideaolgy.
If you want to pay for illegal aliens, abortions on demand, and all the crap that goes along with this wrong thinking bill, then all I can say is you are behind before you even get started.
Maybe you should open up your eyes to the fact that you are now a member of party going south in a hurry.
Yes, even in Mass. with people like Barney Frank and his gay/lesbian agenda, people are starting to wake up.
Maybe you should stick with the Celts, politics does not become you.

Pagliuca, you make me PUKE!
What a way to try and get elected. Keep telling us you and Kennedy are the same person.
This "healthcare" bill stinks and you know it.

Let's start with "Tell me where in the Constitution does it give the government the right to demand everyone be covered by a health insurance plan?". It doesn't and you know it!

Show me where in the plan does it allow me to KEEP and/or obtain my own private insurance. Then when you say "Here.", then tell me what it says next, i.e "..if there is ANY change to your insurance you MUST change to the public option (such as a premium increase, increased benefits, etc.).

Tell me why, as many of you politicians have said, there is too much fraud and corruption in the current system, there is nothing in the bill to tighten tort reform or frivilous lawsuits?

Tell my why if Medicare and Medicaid is such a wonderfully run government program, that they are going if not already broke?

Tell me Steve, what has 'Dingy Harry' Reid promised you for your vote if elected?

I'm sorry Steve, you're nothing more than another "go along with the crowd" Democrat. You don't get my vote.

I assume you were talking about JFK, or RFK, not that besotted liberal loser that lost all focus on the working man he was always blathering about protecting. The only thing he did for the working stiff was to make sure he never had to worry about wondering what to do with his "extra" cash. Confiscation of earnings and a ever expanding welfare system to keep people FROM working, all paid for by the people he supposedly championed, to gurantee a large voter base for the ultra liberal democrats. The guy was a turd.

Pagliuca, (pronounced, PALOOKA). Stay with the CELTICS. You will never make it to the Senate. We have enough crooks in the senate now.They don't need your help.

The only difference between democrats and republicans is that you get something in return for your taxes from democratic policies.

Republicans just hand your hard earned money over to people who are already rich.

Jeah, we get something from the democrats alright, The biggest rectal-reaming job anyone ever saw, and then as a bonus, we get the bill for it too. The freaking democrats waste more tax money on no-return programs,confiscate half my paycheck to keep a bunch of losers on the dole, just so they will vote for them.

Apparently you prefer republicans that take half your paycheck and turn it over to bankers that crash our economy and put you out of work?

This guy can't even pronounce his own last name, at least not the way it's spelled. What's with that? And why ride on the reputation of somebody else? Can't stand on your own two feet? How many politicians and millionaires are going to be part of this rationed health care system that's going to cost the rest of us more for less so we can support the losers who won't work or are here illegally? Gee. I bet the line of the rich and powerful is non-existent.

Anyone notice that since this clown has thrown hit hat in the ring the Celtics are stinking up the joint? Coincidence or are they just embarrassed by him?

This guy Pagliuca is as phoney as the day is long,he made all his dough as a hedge fund scam artist buying into cash strapped buisness's,then taking all the equity and letting the buisness go under.K&B toys being one.He and his Wall street crew could care less about putting folks back to work as his record will show he has put many decent people out of work.
I think Mr.Pagliuca has an agenda for him and his pals.And job creation isn't one of them.
It would be an insult to Mr.Kennedy to let this clown in the Senate.

Isn't it hilarious to see these four liberal nut jobs fall all over each other trying to convince the voters how extreme left, like their idol, drunk Teddy, they are.

Well I'm for the government takeover of health care, like Teddy, because the government knows best.

Well I'm for free food, housing and citizenship for illegal aliens, like Teddy.

Well I'm for greater taxes on the folks who work and a vast expansion of benefits for those who don't, like Teddy.

Vote for me, vote for me, vote for me.

So, this is what it's come to here in Massachusetts?

Ugh.
