I watch election coverage in Massachusetts and I am flabergasted! Why would anyone in Massachusetts-a normally liberal and progressive majority- be losing a race to fill the late Senator Kennedy's seat? While the rest of America's progressives revere Senator Kennedy for all his selfless hard work for civil equality and healthcare for all...the people that have the power of their vote to fill his seat with a Democrat that stands for the same ideals are sitting idle letting the Republican take the lead.

Have we forgotten what the Republicans stand for?

More tax breaks for the wealthy.

Keeping the Industrial Military Complex consuming a large portion of our economy instead of investments in jobs and education.

Policies that protect mega corporations like the insurance companies at the expense and suffering of American people?
