Meet The New Boss, Same As The Old Boss

Recently elected senator Scott Brown, who filled the seat vacated by Edward Kennedy, has voted for the democrat sponsored job bill.

From Reuters:

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.

Thank you for reading this blog.
