Republican Scott Brown is p****d at Idea of Registering Welfare Recipients to Vote
It seems now that voting is only a bougie thing, not an American thing. At least that’s what Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) seems to think, since he’s peeved at the idea of welfare recipients being registered to vote.
What set Brown off was the state of Massachusetts mailing voter registration forms to people who were not given the opportunity to register to vote when they signed up to receive welfare benefits. That was a violation of federal law, and the state is making up for it by mailing out registration forms to those who weren’t given the opportunity to register at the time of enrollment.
That has Sen. Brown p****d because a) his opponent, Elizabeth Warren, has a daughter who is the chair of a voter outreach organization, and b) poor people are just less than middle class people, and the more poor people are registered, the more Brown thinks he will have to make up for them by registering middle class and wealthy people. Here is Brown in his own words:
I want every legal vote to count, but it’s outrageous to use taxpayer dollars to register welfare recipients as part of a special effort to boost one political party over another. This effort to sign up welfare recipients is being aided by Elizabeth Warren’s daughter and it’s clearly designed to benefit her mother’s political campaign. It means that I’m going to have to work that much harder to get out my pro-jobs, pro-free enterprise message.
Brown may be right about poor people not supporting his candidacy though. Since Brown only works on behalf of Wall St., why should he expect people who are struggling and on welfare to cast a vote on his behalf? They won’t. He should be concerned about that.
