QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts GOP Senate hopeful Scott Brown is criticizing the White House plan to tax banks that received federal bailout money.
At a rally in a Boston suburb, Brown said the tax would be passed on to ordinary consumers through higher service and ATM fees. President Barack Obama says banks are paying out big bonuses now so they also can afford to pay the tax.

This may tell us something about likely turnout on Tuesday...
First, Brown is completely right, but I’m not sure liberals (also those who are thinking to vote for him) will understand. Socialist media are already at work.
Second, the Kenny on the ballot should retire. There is no reason for him not to endorse our candidate.
Kenny = Kennedy
- The taxpayers give the banks ‘X’ amount of dollars.
- The banks charge the taxpayers ‘X’ amount of dollars to pay the taxpayers back.
Hmmm... the banks just pocketed doubled the original amount of the loans.
I just got up to Martha Coakley's campaign HQ to help her win Tuesday's crucial special election. I have to tell you -- this isn't like anything Massachusetts has ever seen.
It's happening right after the holidays, so a lot of people haven't even heard about it. Meanwhile, the same guys behind the Swift Boat ads are taking over the airwaves to distort Martha's record, and the same far-right tea-party crowd that's attacking President Obama is funding her opponent.
The stakes in this race are incredibly high. If we don't hold this seat, a right-wing Republican will hold Sen. Ted Kennedy's old seat until at least 2012 -- and we'll lose a crucial vote in the Senate for health reform and the agenda we fought so hard for last year.
That's why we're going all out in Massachusetts with a massive effort to lock up a Democratic victory. But we can only afford to keep this battle up against the far right through Election Day if folks like you chip in.
Please donate $5 or more to help us make Martha Coakley the next senator from Massachusetts.
Democratic ads are highlighting the key differences between Martha, a long-time public servant and one of the nation's best attorneys general, and her extreme Republican opponent who would walk in lockstep with Mitch McConnell and national GOP power brokers.
And our organizers are engaging volunteers by the thousands to make sure Obama voters make it back to the polls.
But we need your help to keep it going. Please donate $5 or more to the Democratic Party to support our work, including our efforts to elect Martha Coakley:
Let's win this,
Democratic National Committee

There is one reason, he's a stalking horse for Coakley. She's the one who insisted he be included in the final debate. I don't think it will work any more than it did in NJ.
The problem, is that Obama wants to impose this tax/fee on banks that did not get/take bailout money. The banks have mostly paid the money back (interest free).
I have no problem with banks paying back what they agreed to pay. I like, but do not agree with the idea that they have to pay fees on the loan, like interest that they would charge a customer, and interest on the unpaid amount if its late. But there is no reason to charge other banks who took NO MONEY in the bailout. Also, there needs to be an end to fees, when the money and interest is paid back, just like any other customer. What the banks pay in bonuses, when all monies are paid back is nobodys business except the stock holders. I do think that NO BONUSES should be paid to any person in a bank UNTIL all monies are paid back to the treasury in full. Period. JMO.
I am not a banker but given that Obama and the federal government are looking to control banking why don’t other banks organize and fight the attempted takeover?
I would like to see an ad reminding the public of zero’s styrofoam Greek columns at his inauguration.
