Is it just a show of independence? Or is he a wolf in sheep's clothing?

Brown to Vote for Senate Jobs Bill
Freshman Republican Sen. Scott Brown (R., Mass.) is to vote with the Democratic majority and support a crucial procedural motion on a $15 billion piece of legislation aimed at spurring job creation, an aide to the senator said Monday.

The move by Mr. Brown to break with most of his party's members in his first ever vote in the Senate is a significant development.

He will SEVERELY UPSET all the people who supported him. His issues as a State Senator seemed to put him in the Conservative Column. He definitely ran a conservative campaign.

He has stated that he wanted to decrease tax burdens. Sen. Brown has fought to lower taxes, specifically by cosponsoring a Republican caucus to repeal the harmful corporate tax increase of 2008 and also cosponsored another measure to extend investment tax credits to all industries in Massachusetts.
