Senator Brown Votes for Fiscal Cliff Deal

In his final days in office, Senator Scott Brown threw his support behind a new deal of fiscal cliff plan.

Calling the deal on the fiscal cliff "not perfect," outgoing US Senator Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) endorsed the plan in his final days in office. 

He says it ‘‘protects 99 percent of Americans from a massive tax increase," according to an Associated Press report. Brown had supported a no-tax pledge.

The deal raises taxes on individual incomes over $400,000 and over $450,00 for household incomes and a portion of estates more than $5 million. The comprise allows Congress to have more time to work on government spending.
