The New York Times quotes Brown as saying he will also push for an across-the-board cut in payroll taxes.
In his run for office, Brown had promised to be independent-minded , put principle above politics and do what’s right for the people of Massachusetts and the nation. To those who thought this was merely campaign rhetoric, this is a hopeful sign.
Can Washington really turn its back on reflexive partisanship, especially in an election year? Polls show strong support for that happening. But is Congress listening?
Congressman Steven Lynch (D-South Boston) said this morning that both parties have indulged in too much “group think,” focusing too much on what people wanted for their parties and not on what daily life is to the American people. He says the people want “common sense leadership.”This Senate vote on the jobs legislation may just be a step on the road to common sense. Thumbs up to Scott Brown for exercising leadership.
