Most of us have seen how the Massachusetts Senate election resulted in the elimination of the super majority the Democrats held in the Senate. It's a major win for Republicans, especially since it's in Mass, and they have a long history of Democrats in the Senate. Seems to me that the American people (well those from Mass. anyway) are sending a message that they don't like Congress's health care plans. As I've stated before, I'm not opposed to heathcare reform. I think it's badly needed. But the Democrat plan is too much. Plus the idea of a law that will change the way we have access to healthcare should be approved by more than only one political party. Texas is a pretty big state with Republican senators that is left out of the decision if the Democrats have the 60 votes.
So I'm glad that the game was shifted a little. That Democrats will have to work a little harder and at least convince a couple of Republicans to vote their way.
