    The House plans on voting on Speaker John Boehner's debt limit plan this evening, but with its demise imminent in the Senate, some Senate Republicans are considering getting behind Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's alternative plan. "I voted for cut, cap, and balance,'" Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts said today, in reference to the House Republicans' initial debt limit plan. "I'll vote for Boehner, and I'll vote for Reid. I've already said that. We need to move our country forward. It's time." Senate Democrats have promised to reject Boehner's plan, which would only extend the nation's borrowing authority for...

    (snip) Other Republican leaders such as Ron Kaufman, the longtime confidant to President George H.W. Bush, believe 2012 could be a banner year for the state GOP. He pointed to Brown’s upcoming reelection campaign, last November’s gains by Republican state representatives, and the possibility of having former governor Mitt Romney on the presidential ticket. "For us, it’s about getting the message out," said Kaufman, who added that GOP candidates would focus on the economy and their opposition’s record next year. "If you look at the last three speakers of the House in Massachusetts, they’ve all been indicted for one problem...

    Tea Party activists are now talking openly about backing a Republican primary challenger against Mass. Sen. Scott Brown. "I think the significance of that is –- I don’t know if he’ll get a primary challenge or survive in 2012 - but that is what every Republican in the Senate and the House up for re-election in 2012 has to be thinking about," said Salon's Steve Kornacki. "It’s going to have that threat hovering over them on every key vote for the next two years."

    One year ago today, the then-Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate, Martha Coakley, was on vacation, presuming her victory was in hand. Scott Brown had a very different idea on the way to the polls. As 2011 quickly approaches, so does the kick-off for the 2012 election cycle, which means the Democratic National Committee will declare open season on our Republican senator. Despite their desires, Brown has not made any major gaffes and continues to be far more likable than Anchors-Away John Kerry, who was caught last summer berthing his new yacht in Rhode Island to avoid paying Massachusetts taxes....

    WASHINGTON — Senator Scott Brown’s decision to buck his party leadership in recent days on the “don’t ask, don’t tell’’ military policy and on a nuclear arms treaty has set off a new wave of anger among some of the activists who helped elect him — and renewed talk among conservatives that he might face a primary challenge. Tweet 1diggdiggYahoo! Buzz ShareThis Some Tea Party movement leaders who dislike Brown’s votes acknowledge that the Massachusetts Republican has demonstrated his independent and pragmatic streak, and by doing so may strengthen his chances at reelection in 2012. No primary challenger has emerged,...

    Six months have passed since Scott Brown shook the world with his upset victory over Martha Coakley in the Massachusetts special election to fill the people's seat once held by Ted Kennedy. Brown was elected to the United States Senate in no small part due to the energy and enthusiasm of Tea Party activists. In the intervening 180 days, the euphoria of sending a Republican Senator from Massachusetts to Capitol Hill has waned amongst Tea Party enthusiasts. Some thought the election of Brown would spell the death knell of Obamacare. As the 41st Republican senator, he put Republicans in a...

    President Barack Obama may struggle to reap political rewards from his big win on Wall Street reform -- at least in the near term. Passage of the most sweeping overhaul of the financial regulatory system since the Great Depression of the 1930s comes as Obama is trying to bolster his sinking poll numbers and avert an election catastrophe for his Democrats. The financial bill could prove more helpful to Obama when he seeks re-election in 2012 than for Democratic lawmakers trying to keep their seats this November. Wall Street reform marks the latest in a series of major legislative achievements...

    As the Senate last week moved to pass President Obama’s financial-regulation overhaul, word came that the Countrywide VIP loan scandal on Capitol Hill had just gotten a whole lot bigger. And that congressional ethics probers are looking into the dealings of eight House members — including New York Reps. Joseph Crowley and Christopher Lee — who raised significant sums of Wall Street money in the 10 days prior to voting on their version of the reform bill. Any wonder why voters are cynical? Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who has doggedly pursued the Countrywide scandal despite Democratic stonewalling, disclosed that Senate...

    Someone on FR mentioned last night that Scott Brown was getting a good work over on his Facebook page so I had to go over and take a look. 99% of the posts were fuming and white hot. Then tonight, an ad came up on Facebook that said that many who like the Being Conservative page also like Scott Brown so that reminded me to go over and take a revisit to read some of the latest comments. Lo and behold, the last comment posted was from yesterday at 5:05 p.m. Looks like Mr. People's Seat doesn't want to hear...

    When people asked for this newly minted celebrity's autograph, Brown signed his name, followed by the number "41," signifying the critical vote the GOP needed to shoot down the president's signature legislation (healthcare reform). "Sometimes he'll be the 41st vote, other times he'll be the 60th," says Eric Fehrnstrom, a Massachusetts political consultant who has done some work for Brown's reelection in 2012, On Democrats' financial-reform package,Brown surprised even his own party when he decided to vote yes, giving his would-be opponents exactly 60 votes.

    Senator Scott Brown is pretty confused as to why everyone is not on board Obama's government takeover of Wall Street... and pretty much all sectors of the financial industry. Therefore, he intends to upload the bill ("when computers get back up") and inform and educate all you big dummies. Tip: If you don't want to listen to Brown's spin, let feed load to 12:45, then fast forward to around 11:45 where he takes his shots at not-yet-informed critics and national talk show hosts who are 'not dealing in facts.' PS - Dan Rea is a big lib. Hence his adoration...

    A bill designed to protect America from another financial meltdown is on the verge of becoming law. The senate just passed the Wall Street reform bill, but it wouldn't have happened without the help of three New England republican senators, including Scott Brown. The sweeping new Wall Street reform bill finally passed with Brown's vote, along with two republicans from Maine, providing democrats and President Obama with the crucial 60 votes to block a GOP filibuster

    The surest indication of whether a bill will be pushed through Congress right now is not a speech from President Obama or a declaration by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Instead, it's often a letter from the office of a Massachusetts senator who has served in Washington for less than seven months. When Sen. Scott Brown (R) announced in a written statement Monday he would back a briefly stalled bill to reform the financial regulatory system, two other Republicans quickly joined him. The three helped prevent a Republican filibuster of the legislation on Thursday morning, clearing the way for a...

    WASHINGTON—The Senate approved a wide-ranging overhaul of the nation's financial regulations Thursday, handing President Barack Obama his second major domestic-policy victory of the year. The legislation passed, 60-39, largely along party lines. Republicans Sens. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine, joined Democrats in supporting the bill. Sen. Russ Feingold (D., Wisc.) was the only Democrat to vote against the measure.

    Republican folk hero Sen. Scott Brown is being taunted by triumphant Democrats - and slammed by irked conservatives - after the historic health-care bill he was elected to kill was signed into law by President Obama yesterday. “If he were a milk carton, he would be expired,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party chairman John Walsh. Brown’s backers from the insurgent Tea Party movement want to know if they’ve been had. “We start to wonder whether we helped a RINO (Republican in name only) get into office,” said Tea Party activist Jeffrey McQueen, who traveled from Michigan to campaign for Brown in...
