A modest job-creation bill advanced in the U.S. Senate on Monday as the chamber’s newest Republican bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package of tax cuts and highway spending.
Republican Scott Brown joined four other Republicans, 55 Democrats and two independents to overcome a procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote later this week.
Brown was widely hailed as a conservative hero after his surprise victory in Massachusetts last month gave Republicans enough seats to block most Democratic legislation.
THat was short lived, wasn’t it. I am glad the honeymoon is finally over, and we know what colors this guy is capable of. Of course some will say it is a modest bill, or that he is an east coast republican, so it’s ok somehow. May be Scott isn’t everything we thought he was.
