BOSTON - Scott Brown keeps his focus on jobs and warns against the type of higher spending and increased taxation that has created a financial crisis in Europe in the latest edition of the Scott Brown Radio Report, “Net Worth.” The statewide radio ad will start running today.
Brown opens the ad by talking about the decline in incomes and net worth that he says is “like a one-two punch that is crushing our middle class.” The wrong answer for the economy is higher taxes, more spending and debt. “That approach failed the countries of Europe, which are in financial crisis, and it won’t work for America either,” Brown says. The best way to put people back to work is by keeping “taxes low, by controlling spending, and by creating a favorable climate that will allow businesses to grow and hire more workers,” he says.
Brown’s opponent, Elizabeth Warren, supports higher taxes and more spending. Recently, prominent Democrats, including Obama’s former top economic adviser Larry Summers, and Alice Rivlin, a former Clinton administration budget director, have warned about the devastating impact tax hikes of any kind would have on our economy right now.
This 60-second advertisement is part of a series of “Radio Reports” to be released by Brown during the course of the campaign. A transcript of the ad is included below.

Script For Scott Brown Radio Report: “Net Worth” (Radio :60)
ANNOUNCER: “Here’s Scott Brown with a Scott Brown Radio Report.
SENATOR SCOTT BROWN: “Hello, this is Scott Brown. Recently we learned the average family’s net worth has dropped almost 40 per cent in this bad economy. Income levels also fell. The loss of income and net worth is like a one-two punch that is crushing our middle class. What is Washington’s response to this news? Higher taxes, more spending, and increased debt. That approach failed the countries of Europe, which are in financial crisis, and it won’t work for America either. Creating jobs with rising incomes is my highest priority. We do that by keeping taxes low, by controlling spending, and by creating a favorable climate that will allow businesses, especially small business, to grow and hire more workers. If we do that, we will rebuild a strong economy that is the envy of the world.”
