Massachusetts Senate Election and Health Reform

Kaiser Health News has a good round-up of stories from The Washington Post, the LA Times and others on what our votes in the Senate race will mean to the future of health reform. Here’s an update on the new poll numbers.

For example, USA Today reports that “Outside groups are pouring millions of dollars into Massachusetts’ Senate race to replace the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, highlighting a contest that could determine the fate of national health care legislation.”

A Robo-caller working on a push poll for the Senate race called me the other day and asked me if I was in favor to the bill that would create a “government-run” health care system.

Is BHN missing something? As far as I know, no one is talking about a national health program.

The robot asked me if I were a member of the Tea Party Movement. That explained a lot. The Tea Party folk have not been the most reliable source of information on reform.

Are there death panels for robo-call machines? I’m for that.
