Democratic spin

One bit of Democratic spin that I heard last night was that Massachusetts wasn't a good state for the Democrats' health care message because almost all Massachusetts citizens have health care that they're happy with.

That ignores the problems that Massachusetts is facing with the rising costs of their health care since they began MassachusettsCare.

They shouldn't just shrug off the memo from Coakley's pollster, Celinda Lake on the campaign. She notes that Brown's message on health care really resonated, particularly after the Christmas Eve vote passing Reid's bill along with the news of Nelson's Cornhusker kickback.

More notably, most Americans have health care that they're happy with.
