Brown Votes With Senate Dems for Jobs Bill

So this is what he meant when he called himself a “Scott Brown Republican.” Brown, the Senate’s newest member, who upset Martha Coakley last month to win the late Ted Kennedy’s seat, is making an auspicious voting debut by siding with Democrats in support of a jobs bill.
