RJC lauds Scott Brown Senate victory in Massachusetts

January 20, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Press Release) — The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) congratulates Scott Brown on his victory in the special election to the U.S. Senate seat for Massachusetts. His win sends the clear message that the electorate has serious concerns about the Obama administration’s health care proposals, its out of control spending, and the rising debt and deficits which are the fruits of its misguided agenda.
 
On the heels of the Republican gubernatorial victories in New Jersey and Virginia, this special election is another indication of the voters’ dissatisfaction with the policies of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi Democrats, and their desire for a change in direction. Brown’s win also marks a positive indicator for Republicans running in House and Senate races in November 2010.
 
There are other positive indicators as well. We’ve seen a steady stream of Democrat retirements, including some veteran lawmakers; the GOP will be very competitive in a number of open seat races. Polls show that public approval of President Obama, Democrats in Congress, their health care plan, and their economic policies are at new lows. GOP recruiting is up and Republican leaders such as House Whip Eric Cantor think Republicans could take a substantial number of House seats.
 
Seeing up close the agenda laid out by President Obama and Democrats in Congress and its implications for our health care, our economy, and our national security, has changed the “hope and change” mantra of 2009 to one of “hoping for a change of course” in 2010.
 
We look forward to working with Senator-elect Brown in Washington in the months ahead.

    RJC should not celebrate yet. When the Republicans controlled the House from 1994-2006 and the Senate from 2002-2006, and Bush was president from 2000-2008, the economy got worse, access to health care declined and 911 did occur on their watch in 2001. Republicans have been unwilling to work with Democratic plans for the economy and health care for the good of all Americans. The financial crisis occurred because of deregulation promoted by Republians. President Bush inherited a surplus from President Clinton; President Obama inherited a huge deficit from President Bush. Lobbyists should not control our government and they are a prime reason for the decline in access to health care and the current health care reform plan not being as vigorous as President Obama would like so that we all have access to quality health care regardless of our economic status. Lobbyists should not control our government and they are a prime reason for the economic/financial crisis and the decline in employment. RJC, the Republicans had their chance and messed up big time.
