I can't believe that the Scott Brown-Elizabeth Warren race is still uncomfortably close. Do the people of Massachusetts realize that Scott Brown took $20 billion of taxpayer money and handed it straight to the banks? How could anybody vote for the guy who basically asks the big banks, "What can Brown do for you?"

Brown held Dodd-Frank hostage until he got more concessions for the banks. Businessweek explains all the loopholes he inserted in the bill here. But what's even worse is that he demanded that instead of the banks paying the $20 billion it costs to implement the legislation that the American taxpayer foot the bill instead. Since the good people of Massachusetts put in a Republican instead of a Democrat into Ted Kennedy's old seat, the Republican Senator was able to shift the cost onto TARP instead of the banks. So, he did what a good Republican does -- protect his big donors, in this case, the top banks in the country, at your expense.

Why would anyone in Massachusetts want to make that mistake again? Especially when you have the single best candidate to fight against the abuse of the big banks running against him (that's why they're scared to death of her).

Brown seems like an amenable guy who is an average Joe, but it's all a ruse. His pickup truck was used to carry his daughter's horse before it became a prop for his campaign. Don't let him use it next time to carry all the loot he got from the banks for selling out his vote to them.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
