Scott Brown on Jobs
Republican Jr Senator
"Different people, different party, different era, same message: Lowering taxes creates jobs. It was true with JFK. It was true with Ronald Reagan. It's true now." Brown added this week,"Martha wants $2.1 trillion of extra taxation. I don't."

Gov. Romney vetoed budget section 673, which says: "A person who has [worked] at least 10 years in the employment of the Massachusetts Water and Resources Administration; who, in the course of his state employment was exposed to asbestos or other hazardous materials; and who has been diagnosed with an cancer or cardio-vascular illness, shall be eligible for early retirement with surviving spouse benefits." [A YEA vote would override the veto and fund the early retirement arrangement.]
The relevant part of the MassDems Platform is: "We support environmental Right-to-Know laws about chemical and other potential dangers to worker health. We oppose efforts to weaken workplace safety standards, or the ability of OSHA or state-level agencies to enforce them."
