Not BEFORE running, While they are IN OFFICE! They should only be allowed to make $25,000 a year, period. NO bonuses, NO retirement, BASIC MINIMAL healthcare, NO kickbacks, NO book deals, NO speech fee’s, NO anything to make extra money!!! And NO access to personal funds if they have it before they go in! That would keep many of them from wanting to be career politicians and would only attract people who were very passioate about what they were doing instead of the kind of misfits we get stuck with nowadays. They would have the $25,000 and that’s it, and they would have to live only on that.

I used to email Senator Brown to support issues I, as a constituent, want him to support. I stopped after a while, realizing how pointless it was. The thing is, every time he responded to my emails, he told me he DID in fact support the things I wanted him to support. I can even see on OpenCongress here that he in fact does support these things.

I don’t think there is a better reason to give this man a great rating and my vote, he always legislates in the interest of his constituents, or at least this one.

Not surprised to hear Brown votes with his party 97% of the time. He is in favor of the health"care" TAX; card check; disclosure act; probably cap and trade – anything that assures more power and control to the federal government – it’s time the power and control is given back to the American citizens. Not that the republicans are any better than the democrats – but the republicans are trying to stop the seek and destroy CAPITALISM mission American’s are currently forced to deal with. – Brown is bad news for prosperity in America.

Senator Brown is simply a puppet that NEVER has an opinion differing from his democratic party puppeteers… I look forward to seeing him ousted from his position. :)

The College Debt Swap Act needs to get passed. These students are drowning in debt. With the College Debt Swap Act, we would get the same benefits as the Federal Student Loans have. We are not asking for a bailout. We want to repay our loans, but need a better structure in repayment that is allowed for the federal loans. This will allow these people to regain their buying power. We want to buy a home, raise a family and start new businesses, but with large debt due to the unforgiving interest rates and other fees these private lenders are allowed to saddle us with, we will never have our buying power. So how will the economy ever be strong with the majority of young, educated people at the mercy of these lenders? Please hear our pleas.

Dear Senator Brown,
S.3520 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral ramifications for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again— S.3520 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

It’s 9:24 central time and it’s your turn on deck, but what I’m hearing is the same thing that every other democrat that is for this bill: story after story. Our family has a story too but I think you know that this is NOT a sound bill. It is not a bill with both sides involved. Frankly, I’ve never seen one side fight so hard as not to work with the 5/6 of the nation that not only pay your way, but pay everyone else’s too.

Many will be watching and looking for men/woman who exemplifies: Honesty, Reverence, Hope, Thrift, Humility, Charity, Sincerity, Moderation, Hard Work, Courage, Personal Responsibility, and Gratitude.

How can Brown have a 35+% approval rating? Congress is what? 15% approval? My guess is Brown should be down around 15% at best. How are the ratings determined?

my cobra plan ended and wont cover me as an individual because i am now sick, for the first time in the 19 years with the plan. hipaa plan will cover me, but being unemployed does not financially allow that option. ironic, as i am unemployed from that very health plan after 9 years. the ray of sunshine? the h.r. 3501 that could give my sorry self a tax break on my four legged “kids” and that would be brilliant! my taxes have been supporting other peoples kids for years, but i dont have any human kids, so i dont get any help with my furry companions. senator brown is supporting this bill and i am thrilled. he supports many others i am in support of. so if i need to get my health care from the free clinic now, so be it. when i was working i supported them, now i shall use their services. i will also defend my home, as long as i can pay the house note. my remington home defense system will assist me. :)

We need to find a way to recall this traitor!

thejeffersondemocrat 12/18/2009 5:30am

Sen. Brown tragically clings to the farce that the “Commerce Clause” of the US constitution gives the government the authority to force (mandate) people to buy a good or service (in this case health insurance) or risk being on the wrong side of the law. That is a tyranically power that finds no shelter in the words of the commerce clause: “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;” Either the senator is ignorant of how the commerce clause reads, or is willfully violating his oath of office.

2012 is too far away for me, you can do so much damage. I see you voted for cloture to proceed HR3590. Shame on you, you lose.

BROWN’S MY BOY!!!!

I love you Senator, you can always count on my vote…..provided your voting remains satisfactory….

AND IT IS VERY SATISFACTORY

YEAH BROWN WOOOOOOOOOOOOO

navywifeked 09/16/2009 4:57pm

According to Mr. Brown on nomination of Sunstein, he heard concern from many constituents, but voted to allow him anyways. What happened to listening to the people that put you in office? He votes the Socialist way and won’t listen, he does what he wants. Not supposed to be that way. Vote him out in 2012, to bad that is so far away. He is going to do so much damage in the next 3 1/2 years. God help us all…

eleyarms 08/29/2009 6:44pm

This is one of my Senators, I am ashamed to say. He does not listen to his constituents and votes his own agenda rather than that of the citizens of Ohio. In today’s climate, definitely a one term pony. Let’s vote him and the rest of the Socialists out of office as soon as possible.

jcgordon 06/28/2009 2:18pm

Sherrod Brown is undoubtedly one of the worst Senators in the country. Here is what the Heritage Foundation has to say about Brown’s record.

“Over the past year and half, his Senate colleagues have shown little hesitation in aligning with Sanders. One senator, Ohio’s Sherrod Brown, would receive an A in Socialism 101 by virtue of his voting record and numerous co-sponsorships. Brown voted the socialist party line, with Sanders, 96% of the time and cosponsored a bill to raise taxes on small businesses and another that would mandate banks to make favorable loans to businesses that meet certain left-leaning ideals.”

if we don’t want to work in a union where is our choice!!!! vote no against your party for card check and vote yes for America!!!

henhousefox 04/30/2009 2:38pm

Bravo regarding S488.

I have never been more scared of losing everything my family has fought and died for than I am now. If HR45 passes then we all will indeed be subjects and not citizens, The fact that the safety of our children is a main point to this bill makes me sick. when we can’t even send them to school without the fear of being beaten up looms over their heads daily. My parents taught me at a very early age what a firearm was capable of doing to another human being, and I never touched one nore did I want to until I was ready to do it safely. This like most things must be taught in the home and not by a very misinformed teacher that has never been hunting,or handled a weapon. let alone a bunch of coattail riding,yes men who really don’t have an opinion but will do anything to kiss ass of our current administration.

waltersdc2 03/08/2009 3:26am

H.R. 45 is also a direct contradiction to H.R> 17 which states we may own and use firearms in defense of our selves, family and home. While we will be allowed to defend ourselves we will not be allowed to keep those firearms anywhere we could get at them easily.

I agree with your comment! H.R 45 is a major step in the wrong direction. I believe this is a beginning step to abolish our second ammendment rights. H.R. 45 will not stop the criminals from obtaining and using a firearm against the law abiding citizen. Why would anyone want to support a law that could possibly turn a law abiding citizen into a criminal due to no fault of their own. It will also add additional and unnecessary cost to citizens, firearms manufacturing companies and many other businesses.

Anonymous 02/18/2009 5:12am

Please, Do not support H.R.45, this is a dangerous bill and a step in the wrong direction. I agree that there has to be a certain amount of control, but this bill could possiably make all gun owners “criminals”. This bill seems to be “being kept quiet” in the news media, I had not heard anything about it until I went to a local gun shop to purchase ammo and they were out of the ammo I was looking for. This bill seems to be making people who want to own a firearm run out and purchase one even if they need one or not. The bill is creating a panic, and that in it’s self could be dangerous. Some of these tactics were tried 70 some years ago, don’t let it happen again.

I am convinced our elected officials only care about keeping their jobs and their very comfortable lifestyles at our expense. They have their own special retirement and medical programs they voted for themselves. I wish I could vote on their compensation and benefit package. If they had to live on the programs and packages available to the citizens they might actually find some solutions to some of our complex problems. I am convinced they just don’t want to be bothered by the average citizen except on election day!
