Scott Brown’s bipartisanship needed in Washington, D.C.

To the editor:

After the deluge of Brown-bashing letters from the Valley’s liberal left, another letter last week cleared the air for me on Scott Brown’s run for the Senate.

After two years there, I hope we will send him back to Washington to continue his work for us. According to the liberals, he votes in lock step with his party 93 percent of the time, but as Fein pointed out, he voted with the Republican Party only 54 percent of the time, and nearly half the time with the Democrats, as reported in the Congressional Quarterly.

Sounds pretty bipartisan to me.

The letter also details some of Brown’s voting records that support jobs, gays in the military and bans on insider trading. With a wife and two daughters it is hard to believe that he is not sensitive to women’s needs. He has publicly stated he is pro-choice, an agenda many Republican politicians don’t get.

Many claim that four years has not been adequate for the President Obama to put our country’s affairs in order, so I maintain that two years has not been a true indication of what Scott Brown can do for us. As a junior senator he has not had a lot of political leverage that comes with time in the Senate. But he already has two years up on his opponent.

Let’s send one of the most bipartisan senators back to Washington. Our legislature needs balance and independent thinking, not just party politics. I am voting for Scott Brown.
