Scott Brown's First Bill

Scott Brown has filed his first bill in the US Senate. Technically, it's an amendment; well, technically I guess it's an amendment to an amendment, but that's getting awfully procedural. The gist is: Brown suggests a six-month cut in the employee portion of the payroll (ie, social security) tax, using $80 million from the ARRA stimulus act.

Give Brown credit for this much -- he already knows how to title a piece of legislation. His amendment is titled "Immediate Tax Relief for America's Workers." It is offered as an amendment to the Senate's American Workers, State and Business Relief Act, which is a "substitute amendment" for the Tax Extender Act that passed the House late last year.

The bill is certainly consistent with his campaign rhetoric.
