I have taken this comment from the Internet. We all have to be focus on the Upcoming Election. Don't let the Jobs Bill get you side tracked. "'Scott Brown isn't the hallmark conservative politician, but we already knew that because of some of his views. He is, however, a whole lot better than the Democratic alternative when it comes to fiscal responsibility and national security. Republicans were in favor of a bipartisan $85 billion jobs bill, but oppose Harry Reid's $15 billion bill. From a fiscal perspective, $15 billion is better than $85 billion, so is there something from a policy point of view that Republicans don't like about the less expensive bill?"
I agree with this statement. This was only to continue a Debate on this. Maybe when it comes up for Passage, Brown won't support it. This is how Government work. Like I say don't let the Trolls get you side tracked.
Donald go back and look at the link that I have provided where I mention health care. It shows Brown stating that "now that we are out of campaign mode I think everyone deserves health care." I think he has turned coat or just used the party and the people to get elected. Another Edwards if you ask me.
And I think that you don't know what the heck you're talking about. There's a problem here.........talking heads that don't know what the heck is really going on. Don't take his words out of context and use them against him because it will not work with me. Do your homework Frances and enough of the nonsense. This thread is getting to be a means of ripping and tearing at Senator Brown because he didn't vote the way some of you think he should. This really saddens me, I thought people on TPN were more savvy than this. This movement is getting a reputation for extremeism by some of the media.........you're playing right into their hands. Why don't you just calm down and do your homework by finding out what this bill is all about and why Rick Santorum came on Fox News this morning and said all the Republicans are favorable to this bill. Stop going off half-cocked at the least temptation. Believe me, this will not be the last time Scott Brown votes across the aisle, maybe he can even get something accomplished in Washington. That is why the people of my state sent him there after all. He was very up front about his voting record of going across the aisle and now that he has you want to cry foul. Grow up for pete sake.
We need to get something done in Washington and not have all the stalemate that forced Evan Baye not to run again. This is a shame since he is a moderate Democrat and could be worked with to accomplish something with the Republicans. The two parties have worked together in the past and have accomplished some good things. Under Clinton and Reagan the system worked. The problem now is we have the wrong man in the White House. He is not a strong leader at all. He belongs to the far-left liberals and that leaves the rest of us leaderless. The 2012 election can't come soon enough. I wish we could get rid of Obama sooner but I don't think we can which is very unfortunate.
Yes, I saw it and I also saw the original speech he gave when saying these words. This video was taken out of context. I'm from Massachusetts and worked to get Scott Brown to Washington. He has my utmost respect so don't try to give me a load of nonsense about him. I have come to know him much better than most of you on this thread ever will. It feels good to have someone you can believe in again. Most of you people need an attitude adjustment. Try singing"The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow" to yourselves, maybe that will do it for you.
Do you work for the government Samantha? What part of we are broke do you not understand? I don't care if it is Corker, Alexander or Brown we have no money we must stop spending. Is this the way people in Mass run their homes? Do you buy things and expect your neighbor to pay for them? It is wrong to spend other peoples money when they are begging you on every corner to stop? By the way, I contributed to his campaign. Shame on me.
No, I do not work for the government. I know we have serious financial problems in this country. That is elementary and we all understand it. Who is Corker and Alexander? You lost me there Frances. I don't know how other people in Massachusetts run their homes, I can only speak for myself. I am a conservatist and run a tight ship.........pay as you go actually.
Too bad you feel cheated after contributing to Senator Brown's campaign. Doesn't take much for you to turn against someone does it? He campaigned on his "Being his own man" and often voting with the Democrats so this was no surprise to us. I expect this will not be his only vote with the other side but you can't cry foul after he was so adament about his voting record.
Who are you voting for in Tennessee in the next election? Hope you have some good candidates to pick from.
To bad you don't feel cheated. I guess Laura Ingraham is lying on her show too. Maybe she took His Royal Lying Highness words out of context. Yes I feel cheated. If you want be a door mat that is your business.
After a few short weeks in office, Brown found a stimulus bill that he could believe in. One that was cleverly re-named a "jobs" bill. During his campaign, Brown regularly railed against last year's $868 billion stimulus bill because it "didn't create a single job." He also called for a "spending freeze." So why did he change his mind this time? Was there a Massachusetts purchase involved? Massachusetts voters are rightly incensed by Brown's vote. They should now let his office know how they feel: (202) 224-4543.
You're mixing apples and oranges. This particuliar bill is far better than the original bill that was passed and yes, Senator Brown was probably against the original and not this one. No Republican is, per se, against this one and are actually, as I have stated previously, favorable to it.
What is accomplished, Frances, by name calling? That is a game played by children on the playground everyday. You, obviously, are very frustrated and have found a bone to chew on to make yourself feel better. Well, have at it Frances, if you think by discussing this in such a juvenile manner will change anything. It definitely does not. Society has gone downhill lately and respect is almost unheard of, especially on the internet. Can we bring it up a notch here Frances?
Do you know what faith is Frances? When I worked for Scott Brown it was because I had faith in him. I still have faith in him and, will, until he gives me reason not to. I like Laura Ingraham but keep in mind what she does for a living. She is a called a "political hack". Lovely woman but I do not listen to the hacks or to anyone who makes a buck off politics. Even if I did listen, I would know to take what they have to say with a grain of salt.
So, Frances, stop trying to convince me that Brown is the bad guy......it's not going to happen. Got no more time to give you Frances so bye, bye.
Right there with you Frances. We need honest people back in uor government and we do not need any more RINOS AND PROGRESSIVES!!!!! Samantha you can love your candidate all you want, some of us have lost that loving feeling!!!!!!!!
