He’s Scott Brown. He drives a truck. And as we’ve learned over his first year in office, he’s also a flaming RINO in the mold of Olympia Snowe. He’s so big of a RINO, he thinks YOU should continue to fund Planned Parenthood with your taxpayer money because the proposed GOP cuts “go too far.” According to The Hill, the flaming RINO from Massachusetts said Tuesday he does not support a GOP proposal to slash funding for Planned Parenthood saying:
“I support family planning and health services for women,” Brown said in a statement. “Given our severe budget problems, I don’t believe any area of the budget is completely immune from cuts. However, the proposal to eliminate all funding for family planning goes too far.”
He was once a “Scott Brown Republican.” He rode the support of the tea party to beat Martha Coakley in last year’s special election in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts to fill the Senate seat once held by Ted Kennedy. He bragged about “driving a truck.” Since then, he’s proven to be the chowder-head male version of the Maine twins, voting with progressive liberal crap like the START Treaty and the Frank-n-Dodd financial reform bill. He also voted for repealing Don’t ask Don’t tell which isn’t really an issue for me, but is for a lot of people. Now’s he’s pimping a book about himself, and running around to the media talking about how he was sexually abused by a 13 year old kid. Amazing timing considering what happened to Lara Logan, and that he needs an attention grabber to pimp his book. Now, all of a sudden Scott Brown is claiming he is a “Reagan Republican” instead of a “Scott Brown Republican”, but don’t just call him a tea partier.
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.”
