    Jobless benefits advance in Senate with Republican votes

    [clip]

    The chamber voted 60 to 34 to proceed on a measure that would extend unemployment insurance, subsidies for the COBRA health insurance program and federal flood insurance through May 5. Four Republicans -- Sens. Scott Brown (Mass.), Susan Collins (Maine), Olympia J. Snowe (Maine) and George V. Voinovich (Ohio) -- joined every Democrat present in voting to move the bill forward, making it likely that the measure will pass in a final tally this week.

    If these kind of Republicans are what the Tea Partiers want, what's all the ruckus about??

    :lol:

    beats me. brown's doing just what he said he'd do when he ran: considering each bill on its merits for both mass and the country.

    crazy talk, i know...still, i'll vote for him again in 2012

    He symbolizes my vision for the future of American politcs,

    a liberal party called the Democrats, a centrist party called the Republicans,

    and a herd of bewildered rightwingers milling about saying wha' hoppen' ??!!!

    I guess they retired Brown's jersey, the one with the 41 on it.

    Yea, I don't know why anyone is surprised by Brown.... he has, so far, done exactly what he said he would do during his campaign. If I lived in Mass, I'd be watching him for '12.
