Yesterday in Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown won the special election to fill the remaining three years left in the term of Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Rep. Pitts' statement follows:
"This is a strong signal that Congress has its priorities wrong. The American people want us to focus on job creation but instead the Administration and Congress has been spending all its energy trying to push through an expensive and extremely unpopular healthcare bill and massive spending bills that are bankrupting our country. The only new jobs created by the healthcare bill would be for government bureaucrats. I think Scott Brown will be a great Senator and I know his first priority will be getting the people of our nation and his state working again."
