Don't take the "side-by-side comparison" at face value! It doesn't even mention that Sen.Brown is also a lawyer, and certainly doesn't give any details about bills he voted for or stands he's taken so voters can understand his decisions--like his vote against confirming Elena Kagen for SJC. She was a law professor without the courtroom experience necessary to be an effective judge--a wise decision on his part that had nothing to do with her stand on women's issues. Brown has brought jobs to MA, sponsored 4 jobs fairs, written & gotten passed the "Hire a Hero" Act to enhance chances for jobs for veterans returning home, & a bill preventing Congress from "insider trading." He supported the fishermen's fight against stifling NOAH regulations. He supports women's rights as evidenced by his vote for the Violence Against Women Act, & his support of the Lilly Ledbetter Act (equal pay for women--the other one mentioned opened the door to unweildly litigation--"the devil's in the details"). He supports women's right to choose with the same criteria that Sen.Ted Kennedy did--a conscience clause for religious institutions providing services. Brown is a hard-working senator who listens to his constituents and will cross the aisle to do what's best for them, MA, & America. His opponent is a far-left progressive/socialist ideolog who has indicated her goals are not bipartisan to break gridlock or do the best for her consituents, but instead to push her big- government type agenda.
