After the jump, read the full statement issued by Senator-elect Scott Brown, R-Massachusetts, in response to President Obama's State of the Union address:
“I was pleased to hear President Obama acknowledge that our economy must be a national priority and I applaud him for taking some important first steps. But putting America back to work requires bold action. Bold action means broad-based tax cuts for families and businesses to create jobs and not merely targeted tax relief. Bold action also means major reform and restructuring to actually cut spending and not just freeze it. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the political aisle on far-reaching new initiatives that will put our economy back on track and get our fiscal house in order.”
From a moron who posed nude and said he is a History Buff and went to the Museum of Natural History in DC alot? CNN come on!!!!!!!
Is this dufus your new McCain? GEEZZZZZZZZZ
And how exactly can we afford Brown's proposed broad based tax cuts?
Brown is another idiot Republican who will NOT be re-elected come 2012. MASS. residents are already very sorry they elected this nitwit to be another lying obstructionist.
Goodbye GOP if this is someone you are excited about!
Nobody cares Brown. Your ideas will only bring us back to where we came from. Cutting spending and raising tazes on the middle class is not the answer. God I can't wait to vote him out in 2012.
Your tax cuts DID NOT work.
Yea, yea, yea, have a nice vacation in Hawaii. We will be here when you all get back.
A pragmatic and sensible response from Scott compared to that of Michael Steel who sounds like the beast of partisan politics, vindictive and not offering a sigle postive statement on shared common purpose. Michael Stell needs to be reminded that it is easy to be a critic than be responsible and take leadership action
Yes scott; be smart and continue to be part of the bipartisan efforts . remember that you got a seat in state that had voted for a democrat for quite a while and the tide can quickly change again.
ummmm.....thats enough from you Brown
Somone with common sense
Sounds like the most common sense response from a republican I've heard tonight besides for the targeted tax relief part. The rich has had their tax break, now the middle class need ours!!!
this guy is sharp, unlike the rhetoric from others this man understands what needs to be done to create jobs, seems like all obama wants to do is limit the tax cuts to certain income levels. well these levels do not produce jobs, you have to give the small and medium sized businesses tax breaks as well so they have the money to expand, not saddle them with mandatory healthcare laws and time off laws, obama and congress need a lesson in economics 101.
T minus 3 years until your out of here.
Who are you again? Oh yeah, insurance company shill. Better start dancing for your corporate masters or you'll be looking for another job in 2012. On second thought, you'd better go ahead and start updating that resume now.
Blah blah blah – cut taxes, cut taxes, cut taxes. Oh but no deficits. Except when Republicans are in power....
I hope you really do reach across the party lines to get something done.
Yeah, constant tax cuts WILL NOT get us out od debt now will it Scott.
Tax cuts. Really. With a huge deficit, you want tax cuts? Grow up, Sen. Brown.
Yea, I can't wait to see what your bold action ideas are. Any one who talk as much as this guy, is usually just talk. I can't wait.
I think Scott Brown is going to be GOOD for WH and I am a democrat. He's FRESH and he kept sort of distance for the right – especially the far right – when he ran his campaign............WE SHALL SEE!!
This is the best republican response I have heard all night. Way to go Scott, at least give it a chance. Don't let the masses pull you under when you get inside the belt.
We will see who is willing to work with who Talk is Cheap!
Neophite. An Indepedent in Repbulican clothing. MA created this monster, just like John Mccain created the monster named Sarah "Dunce Palin. Thak goodness this is only a two years seat. Maybe the people of MA will come to their senses for the election in 2012. Ted Kennedy worked tirelessly for your people of MA.. His greatest hope was for all Americans to have heatlh care reform.But since healthcare was not an issue since 90% of pepole have health insurace in MA I sure Senator is looking down with a broken and heavy heart. Buty YOUR seat will be taken back. The Deocrats just to find a person with the passion and the desire to win and not go on vacation for three assuming your going to win. Martha Coakley was the worst candidate ever next to Sarah Palin.
I'm impressed with you. Don't let us down Scott Brown!
This guy is on the stage for five minutes and his opinion suddenly matters?
Pkm brown does not care for poor people or health care
