Memo to Martha Coakley: If you’re going to sell out, could you at least up the ante a little?
Coakley, of course, having first insisted she couldn’t possibly vote for a health care bill that had restrictions on abortion funding now says she will “reluctantly vote for this bill.”
The Senate version of the bill also lacks the so-called public option that Coakley said during her U.S. Senate Democratic primary campaign was a critical element for “reform.”
What’s your take on the tone and substance of the Herald opinion piece?
