    Speaking to a national audience, Senator Scott Brown once again takes on Obama and the Democrat leaderships' tone deaf anti-public will policy stylings...

    ___

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Newly arrived Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts accused President Barack Obama and Democrats on Saturday of a "bitter, destructive and endless" drive to pass health overhaul legislation that Brown warned would be disastrous.

    "An entire year has gone to waste," Brown said in the weekly GOP radio and Internet address. "Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, and many more jobs are in danger. Even now, the president still hasn't gotten the message.

    "Somehow, the greater the public opposition to the health care bill, the more determined they seem to force it on us anyway."

    ..."We need to drop this whole scheme of federally controlled health care, start over, and work together on real reforms at the state level that will contain costs and won't leave America trillions of dollars deeper in debt," Brown said.

    they wouldn't be whining if they thought it wasn't going to.

    That's the thing...they don't really care either way. If it passes, they'll whine. If it doesn't pass, they'll try to say obama failed because it DIDN'T pass.

    That's what politicians do. What's amusing is they have the rightwingnuts doing their work for them.

    Someone must have explained to Brown that 41 isn't 51. btw, he's wrong about opposition to the bill; it's decreasing, not increasing. The latest McClatchy poll shows Democrats and Independents supporting it, and only Republicans opposing it.

    Why do Republicans try to pretend that Obama and the Democrats have ignored the economy? They passed the stimulus practically on day one. Of course overwhelmingly the Republicans didn't even want to do that much.

    Please link that poll.

    This is from McClatchy as of yesterday...


    Public opinion polls, however, haven't shown a turn in favor of the legislation, which is designed to help 31 million people get health insurance and to regulate rates for those who already have it.

    The Gallup Poll, for example, found this week that 45 percent supported the legislation and 48 percent opposed it, essentially unchanged from a December survey and a slight drop in support since January.

    "They are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to figure some way to get this health care bill passed when they know the public is overwhelmingly against it," said Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., his party's leader in the Senate.
