Hey Mitt—THIS Is How To Handle Dirty Politics From Your Opponent

Scott-Brown-Skywalker

Just got this in my email from Sen. Scott Brown’s campaign:

BROWN CALLS ON WARREN TO REIMBURSE TAXPAYERS FOR WELFARE MAILING

BOSTON – Today, U.S. Senator Scott Brown issued the following statement:

"It’s been disturbing for a lot of people to learn that the state’s welfare department undertook an unprecedented voter registration drive at the behest of Elizabeth Warren’s daughter and the organization she represents. It is clear that this was done to aid Elizabeth Warren’s Senate campaign. Professor Warren has more than $13 million dollars in her campaign account, and if she wants to mail every welfare recipient a voter registration form, she should do so at her own expense, not taxpayers’. She should immediately reimburse the state for the cost of this mailing and stop playing politics with the taxpayers’ money."

Mitt, you’re fighting the Death Star.  Get out your light saber and fight back!

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
