Scott Brown: GOP Won't Shut Down Gov't

Much of the mainstream media portrays Republicans as eager to force a government shutdown over spending issues. That’s not the case, says Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass, according to The Hill. He says Congress needs to work in a bipartisan manner to tackle the exploding budget deficit.

House Republicans have passed $60 billion in spending cuts, but the Democratic-controlled Senate has balked at the idea.
