Having Chris Dodd and Barney Frank write the financial bill is like having NAMBLA watch your 10 yr old so. Still, the 2,300+ page monstrosity passed 60-39 with the truck driving Scott Brown becoming the 60th vote. The Dodd/Frank Wall Street takeover legislation is designed to rein in big banks and protect consumers in hopes of averting a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis. Its ultimate impact, however, will depend on the government regulators assigned to implement it. Yet the bill contains no language regulated Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
Remember during the campaign with his slogan “Hi, I’m Scott Brown and I drive a truck.”? It seems Brown left something important out. He is also a Martha Coakley clone. Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown said on Monday that he will support the Wall Street takeover bill co-authored by top Capital Hill crooks Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Previously Brown had announced that he would oppose the compromise bill that had been negotiated by the House and Senate, but shifted his support after the bill was re-worked to get the $19 billion in payments that was opposed by banks in Brown’s state.
Scott Brown’s RINO style politics seems to be working in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. According to the latest Boston Globe poll which is always overwhelming sampled with Democrats over Republicans or Independents,
The results find that Scott Brown is viewed favorably by 55% and only 18 percent unfavorably. Brown’s rating among Republicans is 79 percent favorable, 3 percent unfavorable. And 55 percent of independents — the majority of the state’s voters — say they like him, while only 11 percent have an unfavorable opinion. The poll has a margin of error of 4.2 percent.
With the DOW dropping 376 points today and nearly 900 points for the month, what a better way to re-ignite market confidence then with a corrupt Chris Dodd bill to takeover Wall Street! Scott Brown who claimed he was a conservative, who claimed he would be the vote against the ObamaCARE health care takeover showed his true colors today voting for cloture on the bill becoming the needed 60th vote. Scott Brown is proving what critics and even some progressive liberals said all along. He’s no conservative, he’s simply an opportunist who beat a really weak candidate. Scott Brown is nothing more than the male version of Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins. I guess that’s what I get for donating to this fraud. CBS has more:
Another day, another RINO. Scott Brown is proving to be your prototypical RINO congressman. I guess that’s what we have come to expect from Northeastern state Republicans, and especially from a state like the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. Senator Scott Brown met with Elena Kagan this afternoon and took the opportunity to ask about her attempt to bar military recruiters from Harvard Law School. Kagan’s move to bar recruiters from a campus facility – because, she said, the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy was discriminatory and “profoundly wrong” – has emerged as the biggest conservative talking point against her nomination. Brown, however, seemed satisfied with the solicitor general’s explanation. But as is typical for RINO cowards, Scott Brown was satisfied with her answer:
Begin liberal head explosion! Scott Brown wrote an op-ed for the Boston Globe explains how he would like the see the repeal and replace procedure go with ObamaCARE:
BY ELECTING me to the US Senate, the people of Massachusetts sent a clear message: Washington needs to get its priorities straight. Voters believed I would be the best candidate to fight for jobs and a stronger economy, keep our country safe, and serve as the 41st vote against the health care reform legislation debated in the Senate.
In the weekly Republican address, Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts explains that the marxist Democrats running Washington have their priorities all wrong. Brown says Americans “told me that they want their President and Congress to focus on creating jobs and reviving Americas economy. Instead, for more than a year now, we have seen a bitter, destructive, and endless drive to completely transform Americas health care system.”
“Somehow,” Sen. Brown notes, “the greater the public opposition to the health care bill, the more determined they seem to force it on us anyway. Their attitude shows Washington at its very worst the presumption that they know best, and theyre going to get their way whether the American people like it or not.”
Sen. Brown says, “I havent been here very long, but, I can tell you this much already: Nothing has distracted the attention and energy of the nations capital more than this disastrous detour. And, the surest way to return to the peoples business is to listen to the people themselves: We need to drop this whole scheme of federally controlled health care, start over, and work together on real reforms at the state level that will contain costs and wont leave America trillions of dollars deeper in debt.”
Sen. Scott Brown and his daughter, Ayla still want that 2 on 2 basketball game with Obama and whoever he chooses (his teleprompter maybe)? The Browns also would like the option of opening the game up to the public in order to raise money for Haiti according to Politico. Think Obama will have the guts? I doubt it.
“know whether the new senator from Massachusetts understands: When you get tried in a military tribunal, you get a lawyer, too.”
During his campaign, one of the things Senator Scott Brown repeated, aside from being the 41st vote to kill ObamaCARE is that the United States should be spending money catching terrorists instead of spending money to give these terrorist scum lawyers. Today on “Face the Nation” the always brilliant Joe Biden tried to diss Brown
“I don’t know whether the new senator from Massachusetts understands: When you get tried in a military tribunal, you get a lawyer too.”
“So, it’s good if we begin to learn the facts about all these things. You get a lawyer whether you’re in a military tribunal, or you’re in a federal court,” Biden added.
The Boston Herald reports that U.S. Senator Scott Brown ripped U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy yesterday as “mean-spirited” after Kennedy dismissed Brown’s monumental win as a “joke.”
“It’s unfortunate that he would use mean-spirited comments like that at a time when we’re just trying to solve the problems of the commonwealth,” Brown said just after entering the Russell Senate Building for the first time as a U.S. senator. “I was elected, and the votes are certified, and I’m here to do my job.”
Patrick Kennedy is of course in deep trouble in his re-election bid for his house seat in Rhode Island.
