What Plays in Massachusetts...

Who'd have thought we'd see the day that Republicans (for whom Massachusetts and San Francisco have always vied for the title of 'most detestable place in America') decided that the results of a special election in Massachusetts should govern the policies that apply to the nation as a whole:

...on Monday, the House Republican leader, Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, issued a statement accusing Mr. Obama of defying the will of the American people by saying that he would continue to press for a broad overhaul of the nation’s health care system.

“Less than a week after the Massachusetts special election, the Obama Administration is vowing to ‘stay the course’ and double down on the same costly, job-killing policies that are leaving America’s middle-class families and small businesses high and dry,” Mr. Boehner said.

The GOP is also rejecting middle class tax cuts because, in their opinion, they spur job growth. This is probably the only time in history the GOP has made the argument that a tax cut... any tax cut... doesn't spur job growth.
