[su_right_ad]Those are the words of one-time Massachusetts Senator and New Hampshire U.S. Senate hopeful Scott Brown.

Brown made the comments at a town hall in Hudson, New Hampshire on Wednesday. The comments were flagged by the opposition research shop American Bridge 21st Century. His comments were in response to a question about what he would to do bring jobs to New Hampshire.

“Here’s the thing, people say, what are you going to do to create jobs? I am not going to create one job, it is not my job to create jobs. It’s yours,” Brown said. “My job is to make sure that government stays out of your way so that you can actually grow and expand. Obamacare’s a great example. The number one job inhibitor is Obamacare.

Brown is running on repealing Obamacare. Then you’ll have your jobs. Yes, once fewer people have healthcare, jobs will materialize.

    Well, one job, Scott, yours.

    A very good reason why we should only have ” statesmen ” and not politicians

    Gopers claim that government can’t create jobs, but that would be news to my grandparents. Grandpa became unemployed, thanks to the Great Depression, but became employed again, thanks to FDR’s New Deal.

      And where are all those “New Deal” jobs today? They were nothing but ” make work” projects that became obsolete once private enterprise got back on its feet.

        What has “Private Enterprise” ever done to improve or even maintain our infrastructure ? Do a little reading before making such broad ignorant statements about that which you obviously know so little ! (Faux Gnus is not a reasonable source of information for rational individuals)

    {“My job is to make sure that government stays out of your way so that you can actually grow and expand.”} — Does that mean he will stay out of the democrats way if we think we need to raise taxes on the rich and return the wealth to the people that actually drive the economy? My guess is, he is nothing but a tool of the Oligarchs and has every intention of standing in the way of doing what is necessary to create jobs. Jobs come when people spend money. When too much money is in the hands of those not spending it, there are less jobs. Return the wealth of the nation to the people, tax the greedy bastards. That is how jobs get created.

      He aspires to be a tool, so he can be rewarded like Cantor just was!

      • Larry Schmitt September 4th, 2014 at 7:44 am

        It appears most congressmen aspire to be tools, and they are quite successful at it.

      These Koch lovers still can’t find anyone injured by CBO’s $1.5 T deficit reducing HC law! “Obamacare’s a great example. The number one job inhibitor is Obamacare.”-Scott Brown has a mere 25% probability of winning because he’s stuck on stupid Vs the ACA Reality: “since the Affordable Care Act passed, 87% of job growth has been in full-time positions.”

        They really hate that Obamacare is working. They’ve been trying to make us forget that they ever brought up that Benghazi thing, too.

      • Wayout September 4th, 2014 at 8:52 am

        Most jobs created today are low wage service jobs and that is why the left is agitating for a higher minimum wage. Under Obama the rich are getting richer and all other wages have been stagnated. Watch out, r o b o burger is coming.

        • Obewon September 4th, 2014 at 9:34 am

          Koch Oil bros Scott Walker won’t create one job as US Senators do because most N.H. voters know there is absolutely no reason to vote for a Greedy Oligarch Party candidate..

        Manufacturing jobs were shipped overseas by Corporate America to increase the bottom line of investors. When the Oligarchs have succeeded completely in eliminating American Unions, the pigs will bring the manufacturing jobs back . This will ONLY occur once America’s “working poor” are driven to the level of a third world work force. Then the “Job Makers” (free-market capitalist pigs) will reconsider their labor market destruction successful enough to start the exploitation anew.

      “Trickle-Up” is the only way the economy works. The big boom after WWII (the Big One) was because the returning GIs were given the economic stimulus via the GI Bill so that they could go to school, start a small business, buy a house and a car–you know, that American dream. It created the middle class. The GOP has been working hard to kill the middle class ever since.

      • Wayout September 4th, 2014 at 8:58 am

        No, its Obama who truly wants to eliminate the middle class and Obamcare is the vehicle to achieve this. It is priced so high that everyone will need a government subsidy to have healthcare except the rich. Thus we are left with the wealthy who will buy their own healthcare and the poor government subsidised citizen. Voila, no more middle class.!

          What’s wrong, you get tired of going by John Tarter, getting a bad reputation? Tired of people recognizing right off the bat that your comments don’t mean much? Gotta change your handle to try and get some respect? Good luck with that.

        • donschneider September 4th, 2014 at 10:17 am

          Hahahahahahahahaha ! fools answers are for fools alone !

  5. Denise September 3rd, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    thank gog he’s losing. he wants voters to elect him and create a job for him in d.c., but he won’t return the favor and create jobs in new hampshire. anybody who votes for brown after this comment needs their head examined!

  6. donschneider September 4th, 2014 at 10:15 am
