    The Democratic Party is owned by the Republican Party, they do what they are told to do.

    Thank you GOD that Scott Brown was elected.
    Like the original Tea Party, the folks of Massachusetts saved America.
    If you think Obama and his radicals are doing a good job for us, you are not paying attention and you are not dealing in facts.

    A Massachusetts man last night , on the news, stated what I really think is driving Brown to the front. He said the people of Massachusetts already have "their" healthcare for all, and do not want to compromise what they already have. As far as they are concerned, it's to hell with the rest of the country so long as they are all set. Nice!
