Scott Brown Lied

The thunderous applause for the election of Scott Brown to the Senate seat held by Teddy Kennedy for four decades is coming to an abrupt halt.  Conservatives like myself, applauded the election despite the fact that Brown is moderate on social issues because he presented himself during the campaign as a fiscal conservative.  Apparently, he was lying.  Just another typical politician making good on the only thing politicians are really good at: lying.

Yesterday, the Republicans were filibustering Porkulus II, otherwise known as the Jobs Bill.  But at the end of the day, four GOP Senators helped advance the measure to a final vote tomorrow on a 62-30 vote.  The typical RINOs, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and George Voinivich, were three of the votes.  The fourth belonged to Scott Brown.  My how quickly the leopard changes his spots.  What is fisically responsible about a bill that at best would create 250,000 jobs?  The tax breaks in this bill are laughable and not enough to get uncertain small businesses to start hiring.  Many of the jobs are for temporary highway projects.  I am pretty sure that is what Porkulus 1 was all about.  Even Democrat Ben Nelson voted against the measure.

Scott Brown defended himself by commenting, “I came to Washington to be an independent voice, to put politics aside and to do everything in my power to help create jobs for Massachusetts families.  This Senate jobs bill is not perfect … but I voted for it because it contains measures that will help put people back to work.”  Yeah, good one Scott.  You keep up with that bi-partisanship that recklessly increases big government.

One response to “Scott Brown Lied

  1. I personally was not a fan of Scott Brown. I didn’t trust him. The reason why is because, ultimately, he ran on the health care issue, and Republicans and Conservatives from across the nation flocked to him because he would single-handedly stop health care in its tracks. There was no stopping health care reform in its tracks, slowed it down, yes, but stop it, no. If you read his campaign site and how he felt about health care, he is in favor of a government-run, universal health care plan. He loves Romney-Care, he just thinks it costs too much. I think he would love to see Romney-Care implemented nationally.

    Did you see the interview he did with Sean Hannity? He said in it that health insurance is an entitlement. That doesn’t sound like it would lead down the road to being fiscally conservative, let alone constitutional. Also, he said in the same interview that the Democrats only need ask for his vote, while Republicans would have to earn it. Although I applaud him for being an “independent thinker and voter,” his voting is and will be predominately Left.

    Also, in his post-victory press conference, he said that “… we’re past campaign mode, I think it’s important that everyone get some form of health care …” He said pre-election that the plan in the Senate was bad, then post-election he said that it was good. He has been lying since the beginning.

    If I may, FreedomsWings, I’d like to post a link to a post I did on this same issue this morning called, “Democrats Just Need To Ask.” In it are the audio clips from pre- and post-election interviews/debates that show that Scott Brown having the R at the end of his name didn’t really mean anything for the people of Massachusetts or other American citizens: http://02f4c4c.netsolhost.com/AbeEricksonBlog/?p=726

    We have to really keep an eye on everyone being elected to office, regardless of the letter at the end of their name.
