NHDP - Scott Brown STILL Hiding His Opposition To Increasing Minimum Wage 

Brown Sides With Kochs and Wall Street, Hurting 110,000 Granite State Families
  

Concord, NH— It has been five days since the Senate voted on a plan to increase the minimum wage to $10.10, and Scott Brown is still opposed and refusing to tell the people of New Hampshire. Despite finding time to pour beer and play guitar, Brown is still refusing to come clean with New Hampshire families about his opposition to the wage increase, a position that has him squarely in line with the Koch Brothers and special interests who fund his campaign.  Increasing the minimum wage would give 110,000 Granite Staters a raise and lift 10,000 in New Hampshire out of poverty.

“We know where Scott Brown stands— he has repeatedly made the argument that raising the minimum wage would lead to ‘fewer jobs and higher prices.’ He stands with the Kochs and Wall Street, and would deny 110,000 Granite Staters a more livable wage,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “The fact that he is pretending like he’s wishy-washy on an issue that is hugely important to over a hundred thousand people in New Hampshire is an insult to voters. Scott Brown is a Wall Street candidate who fights for their interests, any other classification of him is just plain wrong.”
 
Appearing on Fox News, Brown attacked Senators for supporting an increase in the minimum wage, saying it was "part of the problem with the government right now."
