Brown should put party affiliation front and center

RE “BROWN’S ads mostly silent on senator’s affiliation” (Metro, Aug. 13): It may be a shrewd political ploy for Senator Scott Brown to hide his affiliation with the Republican Party, but is it fair to Massachusetts voters? We deserve an honest debate on the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Brown’s party has taken a clear stand on a number of issues, and it is essential that he explain how much of it he supports.

Republicans believe that lowering taxes on the wealthy and unleashing the potential of the free market by removing unnecessary regulations would revive the economy and relieve the growing burden of entitlement programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
