MANCHESTER - Today, Scott Brown released the following statement after President Obama's economic address:
"President Obama is trying to make the case for economic recovery but the people of New Hampshire know the truth: good jobs are hard to come by, and for those who are working it's hard to remember the last time they got a decent raise. The Obama-Shaheen agenda of higher taxes and more regulation is making it hard on job creators. One of my main concerns is the Obamacare business mandate that takes effect in January. This will act as a wet blanket on jobs by deterring growth and expansion. If people like the direction we are going in as a country, and want to gamble with our economy, they should vote for Jeanne Shaheen, a reliable rubber-stamp for Obama and his policies. But if you believe as I do that we need to change course, and create more good jobs that people can count on, then voters should support my campaign for U.S. Senate."
