Brown, 4 others in GOP break ranks to advance jobs bill – The Boston Globe

Brown, 4 others in GOP break ranks to advance jobs bill – The Boston Globe

What the bill does: 

The measure would extend the Social Security tax break to eligible employers through December and give an extra $1,000 per employee credit if the worker stays on the job for at least a year. The measure also includes an extension of popular highway programs. 

How it compares to other bills:

 The jobs bill is a scaled-back version of a $174 billion package the House approved in December. It is also significantly smaller than a Senate measure that had been floated by a bipartisan team of lawmakers.

 Well, that’s a hopeful start…  But, apparently he had permission to vote this way…  

Senator John Cornyn, Republican of Texas and chairman of the national Republican Senatorial Committee, said Brown did not upset the GOP leadership with his vote.

“This was a procedural vote. There was no sort of insistence by leadership that this was a place where we plant our flag or make our stand,’’ Cornyn said.
