NEW:  Scott Brown Calls for Bipartisan Effort to Restore Economy

Friday, July 27, 2012

 

Republican Senator Scott Brown used his live chat forum to call out his opponent while calling for bipartisan efforts to reenergize the economy.

Brown called opponent Elizabeth Warren a “jobs destroyer,” and said that she turns the idea of hard work on its head and that she “believes what’s yours belongs to everyone.”

The Senator also answered a range of voters’ questions, and weighed in on everything from the economy to the Chick-fil-A controversy.

When asked about the so-called “fiscal cliff” that the United States is heading for Brown said that reigning in the debt must be a top priority.

“We should be dropping everything and working right now in a truly bi-partisan manner to work to get debt and deficit in order and not to be raising taxes on anyone,” he said.

Brown also answered a question about one of the most talked about issues of the week—Boston Mayor Thomas Menino’s letter to Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy. Brown said that he disagreed with Cathy’s comments and that he trusts Menino and other officials to enforce anti-discrimination laws should the company move forward with their proposed move.

Cathy has made waves for his public stance against gay marriage, prompting Menino to urge the company not to move to Boston.

Brown also touched upon global warming, and said he believes human beings are a contributing factor and called for a national energy policy, and the Aurora shooting massacre. Brown expressed support for the victims and their families while citing his endorsement from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a strong gun control advocate.

Over the course of the 45-minute chat Brown answered eight questions, noting that he was typing his own responses.
Elizabeth Warren participated in a similar chat on June 22.
