Remember when all the fuss was going on in Wisconsin? All the fear tactics from both side as to what would happen if the collective bargaining was taken away.Look what is happening there now.Some schools are operating in the black for the first time in years and hiring new teachers. Insurance costs for teachers have went down because they didn't have to pay the high prices the union owned agency was charging.I looked at all of that right before I cast my "yes" vote.

Hmmm....another committee and another NEW position created in a government that doesn't have any money. Will someone please explain the wisdom of this to me?!?!?!?

Well since some of the local companies want to play politics instead of doing business, maybe it's time the people of the Valley follow their lead and withdraw our support from those companies.

Gutless and a coward??? When this was originally reported the meeting was being moved because of death threats from some of our local democrats.

"Americans would be more supportive of his policies, the president suggests, if they weren’t fettered by anxiety he accuses the GOP of stoking."Anxiety? Are you kidding me?How about this Mr. President, we are just tired of all the lies you have been spouting for the last three years. Thanks to your wonderful healthcare my medicare costs are going up enough that I will have to stop going to the doctor altogether because your "experts" have decided that the disabled and elderly are not as important as your wealthy supporters. You, as most politicians, have a very bad habit of only listening to those that can further your political ambitions, no matter the cost to the people of this country who have to live with the consequences of your playing politics.I will admit that we need a major overhaul of healthcare in this country, but is supplying services to the illegals in this country instead of looking after those who helped build this country really the way to go?

Being on medicare I already have been informed that the actions taken by congress will be reaching deep into my wallet. I have never voted any straight party line in the past but the democrats are certainly trying to push me there this time. As I see it, I will not vote for ANY incumbent because they are part of the problem.

Terrelle Pryor is usually much better than what i saw in this game. The way he kept throwing at the shoes of the receivers would almost make me think he intentionally tanked the game.

I haven't been a pro-football fan since the Browns moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens. I turned to college ball and Ohio State, win or lose. Today, for the first time since then, I sat and watched the Cleveland-Pittsburgh game and I can honestly say it will be the last one this year. True enough Cleveland has a long way to go to become a contending team and probably even longer until they are the caliber of Pittsburgh, but what really got me was the bearly tolerable refereeing in the game. First downs given for missed fourth downs attemps, touchdowns taken away because of balls dropped out of bounds. Sorry, but until the NFL decides to get some people who can actually see to call their games I will stay with the college teams.

This appointment is just one more example of how the people we elect to go to Washington don't give a squat about whats good for the country, but rather they only care about their political futures.
I will say that Massachusetts plays the game from both sides of the aisles because this could be looked at as payback from when the Republicans did just about the same thing when it was thought that Kerry would be president.
Just once before I die I would love to see ALL politicians act like Americans and not rep. or dems.
Just a short thought for today.....

Just when I was beginning to think the government of this state was a bunch of do-nothings and know-nothings, they turn around and do something that is very commendable. Well done members of the House, I tip my hat to you.
