I'm not sure where Scott Brown has been looking -- or how he is counting -- but I suggest he needs to redo both activities in the face of his assertion that Congress has been obsessed with "fluff" and has only spent 12 days on job creation.
Heck, he's probably spent more days than that trying to protect the jobs of his friends on Wall Street. And we know he has spent many a day working hard to prevent the extension of unemployment benefits.
I'm curious what Brown considers "fluff." The stimulus package that prevented the loss of thousands of jobs? Or the propping up of GM and Chrysler so that thousands of additional jobs were not lost with the demise of an industry that once identified America?
Is health care reform, with the reality of the end of discrimination against preexisting conditions fluff? How about efforts to rein in health care costs so that people with jobs will be able to afford to get sick?
Is putting some controls on Wall Street -- albeit watered-down with Brown's tax gifts to the folks who caused the Great Recession -- also fluff?
Brown's proposals for creating jobs by cutting taxes for the rich are the same old, tired and unsuccessful ideas touted by Republicans during the years they controlled the White House and Congress. To assume they will work now is to believe that fairy dust exists and will make everything right.
Brown appears to be feeling the heat from the Tea Party, who longer swoons at his presence and a reinvigorated Massachusetts progressive community that has come to view his January win as an aberration after the elections two weeks ago.
And personally, I prefer my marshmallows in s'mores.
