Scott Brown Slams Sneaky Dodd and Frank Over Financial Bill

Scott Brown took a beating when he supported this financial overhaul scam, but now it sure looks like he's come to his senses.
I am writing you to express my strong opposition to the $19 billion bank tax that was included in the financial reform bill during the conference committee. This tax was not in the Senate version of the bill, which I supported. If the final version of this bill contains these higher taxes, I will not support it.

It is especially troubling that this provision was inserted in the conference report in the dead of night without hearings or economic analysis. While some will try to argue this isn’t a tax, this new provision takes real money away from the economy, making it unavailable for lending on Main Street, and gives it to Washington. That sounds like a tax to me.
Read the rest.

It's not just Brown balking at this, but the Maine twins are also having second thoughts. This bill may be deader than Sheets Byrd.
