Republican Scott Brown’s defeat of his Democratic opponent leaves the fate of Obama’s health care legislation in question.
Massachusetts (WiredPRNews.com) – Massachusetts’s voters have elected Republican Scott Brown to fill the Senate seat long held by the late Edward Kennedy. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Brown’s win leaves the fate of Obama’s health care legislation in question.
As noted in the report, despite speculation that they would attempt to block Brown’s swift seating in order to get major health care legislation passed, Democrats indicated they would not do so.
Majority Leader Harry Reid is quoted by the AP as stating of Brown’s defeat over Democratic opponent Martha Coakley, “The people of Massachusetts have spoken. We welcome Scott Brown to the Senate and will move to seat him as soon as the proper paperwork has been received.”
