BROWN’S VOTE TO BLOCK JOBS BILL A VOTE AGAINST MASSACHUSETTS FAMILIES
Somerville, MA - U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren today released the following statement on the one-year anniversary of Republican Scott Brown’s vote against the American Jobs Act:
“One year ago today, with nearly a quarter of a million people out of work here in the Commonwealth, Scott Brown voted in lockstep with his fellow Republicans against the American Jobs Act. This bill would have supported 22,000 jobs in Massachusetts, and would have prevented layoffs of teachers, police officers, and firefighters.
“While families across this state were struggling to make ends meet, Scott Brown voted against President Obama’s jobs bill because it would have been paid for by asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share. I think that’s wrong. I don't want to go to Washington to fight for billionaires and big corporations. I want to go to Washington to fight for working families and small businesses.”
