Conventional wisdom is that a vote for Scott Brown was a vote against Health Care Reform. Was it? Many letters, with a decidedly liberal bias argued that it was a win for Mis-information rather than anything else.
Some examples: Some citizen’s comments on Obama’s Health Care legislation: ‘we would all be paying 75 percent of our paychecks in taxes’; ‘Washington would charge her coverage for the worse and increase the premiums’, ‘the restaurant would have to pay to cover its 35 employees..’, ‘jeopardy of paying twice to cover everyone else ( in Mass).’.
Wait a minute! The proposed bills would provide tax breaks for small business owners or exempt them from penalties, Mass. citizens would not pay twice, etc.
My point - who is spreading this misinformation - rather, lies?
Another said : Democrats want to fight a war but with the enemy playing on their team as well, and they just will never learn that the GOP takes no prisoners, you are for them or against them! Until the Dems get tough like the will of the GOP, or the Viet Cong Gorillas for that matter, they will lose every fight no matter what the prize!
Finally one writer said: Please identify those who voted for the Republican Senate candidate. I need them to pay my health insurance premium from now on.
There were less right leaning letters post Mass. election. Having won the battle, are they resting on their laurels?
