SCOTT BROWN SHUNS ROMNEY’S ’47 PERCENT’ COMMENTS

By Annie-Rose Strasser/Think Progress
Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) is dissociating himself from Mitt Romney’s comments about the “47 percent” who he says “believe that they are victims.” In a statement to The Hill, Brown said, “That’s not the way I view the world.” Brown is following the lead of another Republican vying for the Senate in a heavily Democratic area, Linda McMahon. Like McMahon and Romney, however, Brown does not believe in raising taxes on the wealthy, and argues that Obama is increasing Americans’ dependency on government.
