WASHINGTON — Senator Scott Brown, the lone Republican in the Massachusetts delegation, voted against both the Democrats’ and the Republicans’ plans to extend income tax cuts for Americans on Wednesday, contending that the two parties should instead be working on long-range tax and spending overhauls.

Brown, who faces a tough reelection battle against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, was joined by Maine Republican Susan Collins in voting against the GOP bill, which would have extended the cuts for all taxpayers. That legislation failed. Brown also said he voted against that bill because it ended tax credits for education.
