Shocking Intentions of Democrats Should Scott Brown Win in MA

REMEMBER the NY-23rd election last November - a close race between Owens(D) and Hoffman(I). Owens won and was conveniently and immediately sworn in to vote Yea, the Sunday following Nov 3rd, on H.R. 3962 - the House version of health care reform?

I've written below about the race between Scott Brown and Martha Coakley in Massachusetts to replace Ted Kennedy.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING LINK about Paul Kirk's plan (Kirk is the Kennedy stand-in) should Scott Brown win the race.

Democrats playing with dangerous fire: admit to plan to not seat Senator Brown until after Healthcare Rationing vote

"Paul Kirk, currently serving as interim Senator in Massachusetts, has declared that Brown, if he should be elected, will be delayed from any voting in Washington for as long as possible. Masssachusett’s Soros-funded Secretary of State, the corrupt William Galvin, has promised to do everything he can to stall the certification of Republican Brown “so that Democrats can pass the healthcare bill”.

I feel I should be shocked and surprised - I'm not - just

I am also including below the fold an email I received from MoveOn.ORG about the race and the threat that Brown poses to the Democrats and Healthcare.

Scott Brown has a chance to win this race and he needs our support. Please, regardless of what state you live in, SUPPORT Scott Brown with a donation.

Time is short. The Massachusetts special election is January 19th.

Subject: Urgent: A Republican in Ted Kennedy's seat?

Dear MoveOn member,

In 11 days, we could lose progressive hero Ted Kennedy's Senate seat—and with it, any hope for passing major progressive legislation this year.

A new poll Tuesday showed Democrat Martha Coakley's lead in the special election to succeed Kennedy is at the edge of the margin of error, and the non-partisan Cook Political Report now says it's very competitive.1 And today, some of the people behind the infamous Swift Boat and racist Willie Horton ads are spending $400,000 on a new attack ad. Republican Scott Brown and his extreme right-wing supporters are significantly outspending Coakley on TV.2

A Republican victory here would be a catastrophe—Democrats would lose their 60th vote in the Senate, health care could die, and the Republicans could block pretty much anything they want.

We can't let a right-winger take over Ted Kennedy's seat because not enough progressives are paying attention. Coakley urgently needs help before it's too late. Your contribution in the next 24 hours will help her expand her all-out campaign for victory. Can you contribute $5 to Coakley's campaign right away?

Martha Coakley will carry on Ted Kennedy's progressive legacy. In endorsing Coakley, Vicki Kennedy, Ted Kennedy's wife, said, "My husband fought for healthcare reform for more than 40 years. Martha Coakley shares those critical beliefs." Coakley has also been outspoken against restrictions in the bill on women's right to choose.3

As Massachusetts Attorney General, Coakley was aggressive in challenging the Wall Street titans who helped bring on the financial crisis, and she recovered tens of millions of dollars for taxpayers and victims of Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, and UBS for their deceptive activities.4 She'll be a strong fighter in Washington for tough regulations on the financial industry.

And Republican Scott Brown? He's a "free enterprise advocate"5 who thinks the system works just fine. But he's giving Coakley a serious challenge. He promised, "As the 41st senator I can stop a lot of this stuff in its tracks....I can actually force them to go back to the drawing board."6 And there are rumors that the Republican Party and the Club for Growth will also begin attack ads on Coakley soon.

And the race is further confused by the presence of a 3rd candidate, named Joe Kennedy, who isn't related to Ted Kennedy, but is a tea-party extremist. Martha Coakley needs our help to cut through the clutter and get her message out—on TV, at the doors, and on the phones.

At this moment, when Ted Kennedy's greatest goal in life is within reach, we cannot afford to let Republican extremists snatch away his legacy.

Can you help with an urgent contribution of $5? Click here:

Thank you.
