    Go Senator Brown! This bill should have no problem passing and I think both sides of the aisle can support it.

    If you don't support the bill lets discuss why.

    I just watched Senator Brown on Fox with Gretchen. He's a breath of fresh air for Ma. I hope they re-elect Scott Brown. Way to step up the the plate Senator Brown.

    Good for him. It'll never see the light of day, but good for him none the less.

    Am I to believe that at present, it's legal for congressmen to engage in insider trading? :eusa_eh:

    Too little too late. He's already on record siding with the big oil lobby precisely 100% of the time. That is more than enough reason to vote his ass out of office.

    Notice that when Elected Representatives are caught breaking the law they say "There is no governing authority" (Remember Algore and his donation scandal?) So what do they do? Introduce Legislation to fix it! It's what do!

    Why don't they just investigate the alleged violations of Law first? Because they wanna' paper over their transgression before it all gets out and make it look like they've done something about it.

    If you get pulled over for speeding you have to pay the ticket right? No one says "There should be Speeding Law Reform!" while your ticket gets ignored or thrown away. Should be the same for Congress.

    i'm trying to google the bill he voted on people are referring to and am only finding anti-brown ads.

    You don't know what the bill was do you? I want to read it to see if there might have been a legit reason, not related to helping big oil, why he voted for/against whatever bill it is.

    Scott, the Senatorfold, Brown is feeling the true people's advocate, Elizabeth Warren, breathing down his neck so he's trying to appear more the representative of the people. He's a phoney.

    (I do like his bill though)
