While liberal Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown stays back in Washington, today President Barack Obama is bringing his campaign to the Cuyahoga Community College where he will undoubtedly thank Brown for supporting his failed economic initiatives.
Brown supported the President’s first $825 billion stimulus and promised that the legislation would directly spend money on shovel ready infrastructure projects like the Brent Spence Bridge. Unfortunately, it was just a ploy because millions of dollars were spent on failed green energy experiments and billions of dollars were given tax cheats.
President Obama then had the audacity to ask Congress for a second $450 billion stimulus and remarkably Brown supported him.
“Not only did liberal Democrat Sherrod Brown support President Obama’s failed $825 billion stimulus, he was also a major proponent of the second $450 billion stimulus,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Jahan Wilcox. “While Sherrod Brown continues his efforts to expand the size of government, Josh Mandel will work to enact pro-growth, pro-jobs initiatives that will get the Buckeye State working again.”

SHERROD BROWN: “The President outlined a plan that will create and protect jobs and ensure that Ohio workers take home more of their pay. There are no excuses for inaction, as all components of his plan have had bipartisan support and will not add to the deficit.” (Sen. Brown, Press Release, 9/8/11)
