Brown Victory Should Spell an End to Obamacare

I guess we can’t call it the People’s Republic of Massachusetts any more.  At 52% to 47%, it wasn’t even particularly close.

Democrats in the House are stumbling over each other as they back away from the notion of approving the Senate-passed version of health care “reform” so that the Senate would not have to vote again.

Democratic pollster and operative Doug Schoen describes the result even more starkly than most Republicans (H/T: Contentions):

The defeat of Martha Coakley represents a complete repudiation of President Obama’s domestic agenda, going well beyond health care. Massachusetts voters made it clear tonight with the decisive victory they gave to Republican Scott Brown that they want and expect the administration to pursue a dramatically different approach.

Wow.  Unless the Obama administration starts veering sharply back toward the center, the mid-term election in November will be even more dramatic.

  1. Fantastic Victory! The Obama Revolution is over. Please help persuade the Republican leadership to have Scott Brown deliver the Republican response to the President’s State of the Union address. Most of the time, the opposition party’s response gets little attention and generates less enthusiasm. Scott Brown’s election was a heavy blow to the Obama revolution. Scott Brown delivering the State of the Union address could be a good follow up punch. I don’t know of anyone who could create more enthusiasm for the Party than Brown.
