Well, that didn’t take long.

Has Scott been able to play hoops with Obama yet?

Wow! That was quick.

I thought Brown would be a strong fiscal conseravtive.

I was so wrong. He is a bigtime RINO.

Well, 15 billion is better then the original 85 Billion.

They were going to spend it anyway - everyone knew that.

I hope Mass go the recall route on this jerk.

Or hopefully he is saying yes but plans to blindside them with a no vote when they think they have the votes; albeit, not likely...

We knew some of this was coming. It was part of the price of admission. Doesn't make it any better for us, though.

Scott Brown in the end, as he helped us kill ObamaCare...

will ALSO help us kill Romney. Conservatives will wake up to Scott Brown and be reminded what Romney offers us.

Susan Collins (Maine) and Olympia Snowe (Maine) also voted for cloture on the proposal. Reitiring GOP Sen. George Voinovich (Ohio) also voted for cloture.

Brown's opposition to ObamaCare was, in part, due to the fact that MA voters were already being taxed for RomneyCare. Brown felt they shouldn't be further taxed for something they already were paying for at the state level.

Brown duped a lot of FReepers, but it's nice to see that common sense is starting to prevail.
