ANALYSIS/OPINION:

With the election of Scott Brown of Massachusetts to the U.S. Senate, a message is said to have been sent about the frustration of “We, the people,” and the state of current events.

As a Republican and the father of a plumber, I hope this latest win won’t be interpreted by the powers that be on both sides of the political aisle as time to do nothing on health care reform.

What is needed most is catastrophic health insurance coverage. What people fear most are not the costs associated with the minor coughs and sneezes but instead those associated with coronaries, cancer and the like.

It’s time to get beyond finger-pointing and political posturing. Move forward, act and get the job done. Can our elected representatives just do it?
