    Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) released a statement Tuesday night warning that it would be wrong "to pass a health care bill as if the Massachusetts election had not happened."

    The statement seems to advocate against ramming reform through Congress before Republican Scott Brown is seated and acknowledges that the House-Senate-White House negotiations are likely over.

    The Dems seethe writing on the wall to apparently include Barney Frank. Most likely the Marxist health Care is dead in the water. We will see.

    Why the sudden change of heart?

    These guys were all in favor of ramming this bill through before this upset.

    Could it be that they now "get it" and finally realize that the majority of voters don't like their arrogant methods of governing?

    Not likely..... They'll follow their usual pattern: They'll pretend to turn away for a while. One good nights sleep.... and they'll wake and think it was just a dream that they forgot: Then, when they feel we're too distracted to notice.... they'll try to ram it down again.

    Smoke and mirrors, guys. Smoke and mirrors. They attempted to force their agenda, they lost (for now), and are merely attempting to regain the good will of the people.

    Do not be deceived.

    Unfortunately, it is all to easy to overestimate the mentality of the average voter. All these Marxists have to do is talk conservative again, and by November (if there is an election) the average voter will have forgotten.
