The election of Scott Brown and the resumption of the balance of power between the Republicans and the Democrats is one faction of what makes this country so great. I am heartened to see that President Obama will likely have to make some concessions to eventually pass the much needed health care reform. I strongly believe that we have make a step in the right direction. Hooray for the voters in Massachusetts.

Residents in Central Mass are angry with the arrogance of this administration in passing costly legislation without concern for and input from the citizens. When we want to speak out over an issue such as healthcare to our elected representative, Congressman John Olver, we are shut down from discourse and told the best we can do is to read an interview on the subject in the Sentinel".

Last year I attended my first Tea Party in Worcester on April 15. I didn't know what to expect but found a healthy, gracious group of patriots who feel that government should work for us. I would encourage anyone who is interested in beoming part of this movement to consider going on line and checking out the Tea Party movement. The first Worcester event will be on April 15 and typically held in Lincoln Square where there is plenty of space and parking. Get your voice out and become part of the groundswell to bring the people back to Washington.

Health care reform in its current state is DOA and that's a good thing for this country. And the politicians who were bribing other politicians to win votes should be prosecuted.

All of a sudden Obama is saying that Scott Brown's victory is much like his own victory. Deval came out last night with a similar statement, that he saw a lot of similarities between his vin and Scott Brown's. The Democrat spin machines are working double duty to try and minimize this victory and to repair the damage Obama and his ilk have caused to their party.

Good luck, they'll need it.

Hey libtard dumocraps, what was it you said last November, that's right, GET OVER IT!

Comrade NObama and the Pelosi Politburo's progressive agenda is dead and the carnage to the clueless left will continue this November.

November, November, will be one to remember!

Voters angry over the economy just elected a politican who vocally supports Republican policies that have resulted in:

-- Worst job growth on record: ZERO job growth between 2000 and 2008

-- More than a DOUBLING of Federal debt 2000-2008 when the GOP was in power

-- The WORST RECESSION and financial meltdown since the Great Depression

Go figure.

Given everything you posted it would make you think that people are even more disgusted by what Obama, Pelosi, and the Democrats who had the majority until a few days ago, have been doing to this country since January 20, 2009.

With great interest and relief i have read this article all the way over here in germany were i am staying until next week.
Yes,the pople of mass have finally spoken loud and clear and i just hope the white house and its occupants will hear us.
we do not want the healthcare reform as it has been presented,i have been watching the sozialized healthcare system for too man years over here - i do not want it back home...
Just like in canada and elsewhere in europe, long waitinglist for surgery,almost always and hour or more waiting at the doctors office just to name a few.You will be lucky if you get to stay in the doctors office for more than a few minutes.
Unfortunatley i was not back in mass to vote, but my son said the feeling that day was like you could almost believe that your vote counts.
I don´t know much about Sen-elect scott brown, but he may just be our last hope not to turn our great country into a sozialized chaos- that is not wy i immigrated to the US almost 40 years ago.
Lets believe in our country again and for what it supposed to stand for, and lets not be afraid to speak up - we are the people and the people in the white house work for us.
Let´s hope the future senator of mass will not forget that.

I voted for Scott Brown (I consider myself Independent), and I am so "Thrilled" that he won the "People's" seat!

I have been ssying for the past several months that "We, THE American people, need to take our country back from BIG gov't!!!" To arms my brothers & sisters if necessary - no more "Buyouts, bailouts, or BS! We have had it up to our A**es in alligators!

You bet we are ready for another "Tea" PARTY!!!! DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE UNDER DOG - THAT IS WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS BUILT ON - WE THE PEOPLE DECLARE "INDEPENDENCE" from Corporate America, & D.C.!

He's already made a huge impact and he hasn't even been sworn in yet.

You failed to mention that the Dems held the reins of power for most of that time. You failed to mention that the 800 billion that Obama dished out twice, to the richest in the country, will be paid for by your grandchildren. You failed to mention that when the Senate was almost equally run, with the GOP holding a slight majority, the price of gas was $1.57 a gallon. Why don't you stop being a party kiss butt and put the blame where it belongs, on the both parties that are there ONLY for what they can get.
