    New U.S. senator helps Democrats advance jobs bill


    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.

    "I hope my vote today is a strong step toward restoring bipartisanship in Washington," he said in a statement.

    The bill includes a tax credit for businesses that hire unemployed workers, subsidies for state and local construction bonds and $19.5 billion to shore up a highway-construction fund.

    Much of the cost is offset by a crackdown on offshore tax shelters.

    I knew this "Republican" who never ran as a republican, who is pro choice and is for gay rights would help us Dems out.

    Republicans, when you were screaming victory when Mr. Brown won in Ma, how do ya feel now? LOL Dino! :)

    I feel pretty good... he shut down the horrible Democrat health care bill.

    And yet you claim victory on some small committee vote?

    hahah.. jokes on you.

    I understand he isn't a Reagan conservative. If his only accomplishment in politics EVER is shutting down the Dem healthcare bill.... I am ok with that.

    Weren't you the nitwit, AutoZona, who suggested that the GOP would sooner or later say that Brown isn't a Conservative? Except you said it as though they'd be wrong.

    Of course he's not a conservative.

    He's still a refreshing breath of air over the retarded uber-liberoidalism of Teddy erah erah "hic" Kennedy.

    By Massachusetts standards, of course, Brown practically is a conservative.

    Personally, I'll settle for the incremental-ism stuff for the time being.

    Twits like you, AutoZona, don't sense the shifting of the ground until the roof has collapsed on your pinhead.

    :clap2:

    But the times, they ARE a-changing. :cool:

    Compared to Kennedy , Brown is far far right wing. As long as he keeps Obamacare at bay he can do as he sees fit and I could care less.

    Political suicide. If it wouldn't do so much harm to the country I would suggest you all go for it.

    Doesn't sting at all... what are you talking about. We understand and have from the start that he isn't a Reagan conservative. His election stopped the healthcare bill.... thats a big deal to us.

    So, now... when he votes yes to a useless committee.... I don't care. Why is that hard to understand? His election allows Republicans to stop Obama on some things. Good enough for us.
