Keller has it right:
What you’ll see is GOP nominee Scott Brown hammering away at Democrat Martha Coakley as a clueless tax-and-spender, someone who will march in lockstep with the Beltway’s wasteful spenders and congenital tax-hikers in a perpetual raid on your beleaguered wallet. There were few topics that Brown didn’t find a way to turn back toward the taxing-and-spending mantra. He did it relentlessly and effectively, and really, what other choice does he have? It’s one of the few issues that work for a Republican in Massachusetts, and it’s his best shot at starting a fire among economically anxious voters.

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?
