It Really COULD Be the Decisive Vote

Contrary to earlier reports in the Boston Herald, Barney Frank and the the Massachusetts machine insist that if Scott Brown wins the US Senate seat, his swearing-in won't be delayed in order to facilitate the passage of the heinously unpopular Democratic health care bill.

Well, that's good to know.  So a vote for Brown could be construed as a vote against a government takeover of health care -- nothing more and nothing less.

At this point, it's important for Brown's campaign to reach out to Massachusetts' independents, letting them know that they understand that a vote for him doesn't have to mean that they're "becoming" Republicans.  Rather, it's simply a way for people to tell the arrogant DC Democrats that Americans expect their health care bill to be created, amended and passed in a sensible, bipartisan manner -- without special deals and backroom "fixes."  Or breaking the bank.
