"Can you hear us now?"
Is that what Massachusetts voters are saying to Barack Obama about health care after Republican Scott Brown's win in a very blue state? Interviews with dozens of Massachusetts voters emphasized that health care and the process of forcing through legislation in D.C. were directly responsible for their votes
Voters said it in Virginia and New Jersey in November even after Obama went into those states to campaign for the Democrats ... voters almost said it in New York ... and now they have resoundingly said it in Massachusetts.
Stimulus bills, bailouts, government takeover of private corporations, mortgage crisis, and the worst of all, government-forced health care ... all were jammed down voters' throats.
In response, nationwide tea parties began in the spring of 2009 ... conservative voters showed up at senate townhall meetings during summer ... and a march on Washington, DC, on September 12 by over 1.2 million voters further demonstrated that Americans were not going to take it sitting down. Finally, constant visits, phone calls, and emails to congressmen and senators have continued to this day.
Now that Scott Brown has won in Massachusetts, will Barack Obama and his Democrat cronies finally stop to listen to the American citizens?
No matter what Obama does, we should thank him for waking up the Sleeping Giant that is the American people who are saying, "Obama, can you hear us now?"
