Even though I'm not a Republican, and never was (however, I have voted Republican before) I subscribe to Sen. Scott Brown's newsletter. I, not only find it newsworthy, but very well-written and informative. Brown is seeking to repeal a tax withholding law that he claims costs more to implement than it creates in revenues.

November 4, 2011 Urging the Senate to Pass My Jobs Bill
Just this week, I re-introduced my jobs bill that would repeal the job-killing 3% tax withholding law. This tax withholding law will impose huge costs on our already cash-strapped state, local and federal governments and private sector if we let it go into effect. This fix has already passed the House with an overwhelming 405 votes and is strongly endorsed by President Obama. However, it's still awaiting a clean vote on the Senate floor.

As I said last week, if Congress can keep the focus on creating jobs, rather than political point-scoring, weâ€™ll start to fix this economy and help the millions of Americans who are struggling to get by
On Thursday, November 3, I sent a letter to Majority Leader Reid urging passage of the bill. You can read a copy of the letterÂ here.
