Scott Brown is the GOP candidate for the open Senate seat in Massachusetts. Today comes word that he is within shouting distance of Democrat Martha Coakley.
Coakley is a liberal Democrat of the cookie cutter variety. Even in the friendly environs of Massachusetts she can do no better on the subject of health care, for example, than assuring voters that as their next “U.S. Senator, Martha will work to ensure health care reform is done effectively and responsibly.” And you know what that means. On the other hand, Brown forthrightly declares: “I am opposed to the health care legislation that is under consideration in Congress and will vote against it.”
On “equal rights and opportunity,” Coakley is equally bold in declaring her beliefs: “Martha believes that our differences and diversity make us stronger — and that our government must ensure equal access to opportunities and fair treatment for all.”
What about the economy? “Martha believes the best way to get our economy back on the right track is to tackle the economic crisis head on and to take all necessary steps to get people back to work.”
I could go on quoting the strategically bland Ms. Coakley, but suffice it to say that Scott Brown deserves our support. He too believes that the the best way to get our economy back on the right track is to tackle the economic crisis head on and to take all necessary steps to get people back to work, only more so! Brown actually supports the free enterprise system, and his victory would kill Obamacare to boot.
