Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) is taking heat from within his party for speaking out against the GOP budget plan that privatizes Medicare.

“Respectfully, Scott Brown ought to be ashamed of himself,” freshman Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) told Neil Cavuto Monday on the Fox Business Network. “This is the defining moment of this generation. We have got to be bold. We know these entitlements have to be reformed to be saved. He knows that.

“And any Republican that doesn’t vote for this or doesn’t support this is purely being guided by political reasons, and shame on them,” he added. “This is no time to be politically scared.”
