SO WHAT'S BAD FOR DEMOCRATS IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY?:

Wall Street bets on a GOP win in Massachusetts (Tom Petruno, January 19, 2010, LA Times)

Wall Street thinks it knows the outcome of today’s Massachusetts special election for the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

Stocks are broadly higher, led by healthcare issues, as some investors bet that Kennedy’s seat will go to Republican challenger Scott Brown. That could deprive Democrats of the 60-vote majority they need in the Senate to stop a potential filibuster of the healthcare reform bill.


All the Democrats have to do is get out of the way.
