August 10, 2012 -- U.S. Senator Scott Brown tells members of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce that he respects them as risk-takers who make the economy grow. He spoke Aug. 8 at a Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce event at the Hyannis Golf Course.
In less than three years, Scott Brown has gone from being an obscure Massachusetts state senator to representing the commonwealth in the U.S. Senate. On Aug. 8, he was back in the Bay State telling Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce members what’s wrong with Washington and what’s right with their entrepreneurial souls.
“You who take enormous risks,” he said, “personal risks to build businesses have been attacked. You will never hear me demonize you as job creators.”
Washington, said Brown, doesn’t understand that business people want “regulatory and tax certainty” from the government so they can go about building the economy.
