Senator Scott Brown switched a key vote from yesterday and joined 57 Democrats and two Republicans this afternoon in advancing a massive financial regulation overhaul.
The Massachusetts Republican said that over the last 24 hours he received assurances from the chief negotiators in the House and Senate, Senator Christopher J. Dodd, and Representative Barney Frank -- that changes he was seeking would be addressed. Those assurances came during a phone call with Frank last night, while the Newton Democrat was working out in the House members gym. Brown was further convinced during a 40-mile bike ride he went on this morning with Senator John Kerry.
We recognize that theres going to be some fixes here, more than likely, and the conference committee, Brown said after voting. Im satisfied that all of our efforts Senator Kerry and my efforts will benefit and protect jobs in Massachusetts.
I spoke at length over a 40 mile bike-ride with Senator Kerry about it, Brown added. Hes a very good athlete.

I’ve been getting campaign donation emails from him constantly lately. What a disapointment he is...
Like Reagan / Bush.
No more Faustian deals, please.
Why not just take a stand and explain why this is BAD for Massachusetts?
Can I slap him with a large fish?
“We recognize that theres going to be some fixes here”
I see the “fix” is in.
I was wondering what Scott Kerry-lite was up to these days...polishing up on his RINO skills, I see.
Gee, you can’t tell that he’s new to DC now can you? What a moron.
“Those assurances came during a phone call with Frank last night, while the Newton Democrat was working out in the House members gym.”
I would have guessed that Bawney Fwank frequents the YMCA, like the rest of his kind.
> over the last 24 hours he received assurances
From Bawney Fwank and his looney leftist mob?
And their “assurances” are believable because ...
The only good thing that came out of Brown’s election was the black eye it gave the DemonRATs.
Since then he’s been slapping their backs, rather than kickng them in the pants.
A lot of people on here were giddy about Scott Brown, saying how great it would be if he ran for President right after his election. It’s time that many of you took off your Republican colored glasses and realize that most of the Republicans in Congress aren’t much different than the Democrats, especially in the Senate. Once a RINO, always a RINO. There are very few good people in our government. Dark days are ahead. USA=Greece in 3 years.
Hard to watch birth of a RINO.
A man who won’t defend our unalienable right to Life won’t defend our unalienable right to Liberty either.
Scott Brown is a Liberty-hating liberal scumbag!
“he received assurances from the chief negotiators in the House and Senate, Senator Christopher J. Dodd, and Representative Barney Frank — that changes he was seeking would be addressed.”
He’s a slow learner...
he switched his vote, eh? When the hell is a vote final?
We got rid of Arlen Specter this week. Someone had to pick up the mantle.
"We've decided not to make any changes, therefore they are 'addressed'. Thanks for helping us stick it to them again."
You, sir, are out of your mind.
