Via The Hill, Scott Brown just made major shift on his stance on the Bush Tax Cuts:
The Senate rejected the Republican proposal for extending the Bush-era tax rates in a straight up-or-down vote Wednesday.
GOP Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Scott Brown (Mass.) joined Democrats in voting against the GOP plan, which would have extended the Bush-era tax rates and other current tax policies. Brown faces a difficult reelection battle this fall.
Scott Brown had previously joined Republicans in maintaining the Bush Tax Cuts without the changes Obama and the Democrats wanted let expire breaks for those who make over a million dollars.
Voting on the Democratic proposal passed, no vote details yet:
There you have it: Senate Democrats just prevailed 51-48 a vote to extend the Bush tax cuts only for incomes up to $250,000.
But it will probably die in the House of Representatives.
