In my coverage of the Fitchburg July 4th Parade I had the chance to interview Congresswoman Nikki Tsongas as she marched.
In addition to her answer on the Swatting letter (she knew nothing about it) there was some news made concerning Obamacare
DaTechGuy: The president’s healthcare plan has been upheld as constitutional will you be campaigning on support for that plan?
Congresswoman Tsongas: Absolutely, I’ve been a strong supporter for it from the outset. We need to provide adequate healthcare for the millions of Americans who do not have it and we need to work very hard at bringing down the cost so that we can all afford to buy the insurance we need.
In an election where the result is going to decide if Obamacare remains the law of the land, this position, and props to her for not equivocating on it, could make a big difference come November.
Just to remind you Scott Brown won Fitchburg with 58.9% of the vote vs Coakley’s 39.9%. That 19 POINTS out of 9461 votes cast.
If I’m Nikki Tsongas, I’d be spending an awful lot of time here over the next 4 months.
The DaTechGuy Fundraiser is in progress, our goal is $3000 and right now I’m doing worse than Martha Coakley did in Fitchburg in Jan 2010. Any help is appreciated. For details click here for the progress check the thermometer to the right and to kick in hit DaTipJar”.
