I think that if people thought that Brown would be a party line guy, they clearly weren't listening to what he said. He said he would do his best to represent his constituency. That is what they all are supposed to do.
I am not surprised that he voted for the jobs bill, considering how bad people are financially hurting right now. It's possible that the people in Mass. that he represents did the patriotic thing and actually called his office or wrote letters telling him what they want him to do. Isn't that how it's supposed to work?

It's because the stimulus is set to trickle down over time. Alot of the so called shovel ready jobs are set to start in time to make it appear as if it is working during the election cycle.
According to Charlie Crist it created about 85,000 jobs in Florida. According to Arnold its created more than 215,000 in CA. Accrording it has created thousands of jobs except when the cameras are rolling than its bad, very very bad
