It’s time for Senator Brown to vote for Massachusetts

When he took office, Senator Brown promised that he would be an independent thinker and that he would protect Massachusetts.

Now, the Commonwealth stands to lose $685 million if Senator Brown votes against a bill that would provide Massachusetts with desperately needed federal funds.

It’s time for Senator Brown to stand up!

Along with losing $685 million of Medicaid payments if Scott Brown votes no, Massachusetts will lose:

  • Tax credits for small businesses
  • An extension of unemployment benefits
  • Better funding for our public schools and public higher education system
Come join a coalition of unions, religious groups, advocacy organizations, senior organizations, health care workers and building trade workers in asking Scott Brown to support funding for critical state services!

Tell the Senate to Pass the "Tax Extenders" Bill
This important bill provides essential Medicaid funding (FMAP) relief for states to help ameliorate urgent budget crises that continues to weaken the economy, extends unemployment and benefits to help struggling families; and extends the deduction for educators' out-of-pocket classroom supply expenses.

Urge the Senate to pass the Keep Our Educators Working Act
