KUDOS to Virginia's Jim Webb for his statement on the MA election results!!

Enough with the political games.  Scott Brown won fair and square.  The American people through our citizens in Mass spoke out.

Preventing Scott Brown from being sworn into his Senate seat is just plain wrong.

At least one Democrat has publicly gone on the record to encourage Nancy Pelosi and the rest of our electorate to do the right thing.

I did not vote for him and I do not support his party's liberal/progressive agenda; however, this press release from Jim Webb's office should be the rallying cry for the moderate Democrats to STOP the current health care discussion * either in private or in public * and to allow Scott Brown to be seated in his MA US Senate seat.

Statement of Senator Webb on the Election Results in Massachusetts

January 19, 2010

Washington, DC—Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) issued the following statement in response to the special election results in Massachusetts:

“I congratulate Scott Brown on his victory, and I look forward to working with him in the United States Senate.

“In many ways the campaign in Massachusetts became a referendum not only on health care reform but also on the openness and integrity of our government process.  It is vital that we restore the respect of the American people in our system of government and in our leaders.   To that end, I believe it would only be fair and prudent that we suspend further votes on health care legislation until Senator-elect Brown is seated.”

Dagny,  I have been a Va resident.  I'm in the process of moving to Pa.  I emailed and called Jim Webb's office consistently on issues. I did the same with Warner.  I must say Webb has kept a constant stream of email reports coming back to voters. Warner NADA.

I thought Webb would hold out, but in the end like Liberman and Nelson he caved.  Maybe he is seein the error of his ways now.

I know he is positioning.  I got pissed at him for bending over.  I sent him an email and told him so.

It seems like everything that happens these days is another opportunity for the children we elected to office to cry at one another.
