There’s a lot to fix in this country, Scott Brown said at a Nashua Rotary lunch on Monday, including a lack of leadership at the top.
“The world is on fire,” said Brown at the start of his remarks Monday. He spoke of international issues such as Ebola, military buildup in China, kidnappings by Boko Haram and fighting in Syria, citing a lack of leadership.
Brown is running against Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and delivered a pro-business message while highlighting differences between him and Shaheen during his remarks at the Nashua Country Club..
“This race is going to be about differences,” Brown said. “She’s a good person. I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again and again. We just have different ways of looking at things.”
Brown illustrated differences in votes on issues including border security and energy issues.
On border security. “I voted to send troops to the border, Senator Shaheen didn’t,” Brown said.
On energy: “Senator Shaheen is against coal, she’s against nuclear,” Brown said. “She’s against focusing and helping step back from our dependence on foreign oil.”
Brown listed corporate taxes, rising energy and healthcare costs as obstacles to New Hampshire businesses.
“The only thing worse than voting 99 percent with the president is voting 100 percent against small businesses,” said Brown.
