Brown backs Reid proposal, blasts GOP

July 28, 2011

Describing the House Speaker’s plan and Republican behavior as “irresponsible,” a U.S. senator from Ohio is calling for an end to the bipartisan budget bickering during this pivotal time in history.

Congress has until Tuesday to approve raising the debt ceiling to avoid default and a lowering of the nation’s credit rating.
