Sen. Webb Steps Up

Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts this week has sparked a new light in the Republican party. However, on the other side of the isle, we see the Democrats wiggling in their seats, debating the outcome of the 2010 elections and beyond.

Some Dems, however, are hearing the rally cry coming from the American people. Virginia Senator Jim Webb has been the first to acknowledge that Obamacare should slow down until they have an adequate representation of the people (i.e. until Brown is seated).

Calling the election a referendum on the "openness and integrity of our government process," Webb wrote in a statement: "It is vital that we restore the respect of the American people in our system of government and in our leaders. To that end, I believe it would only be fair and prudent that we suspend further votes on health care legislation until Senator-elect Brown is seated."

In short, he is scared.

But at least he is listening, and let’s hope that many more Dems follow in his footsteps.
