THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS TT (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 115 - NO. 23 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, JUNE 10, 2011 $.30 A COPY FLAG DAY June 14, 2011 Show gou,00, coo00s, ,00me00ica/ \\; / I I I I i i )I!  i] I I Brown Voting Right Way US Senator Scott Brown is turning out to he an" independent voice on Capitol Hill. This is what most of us expected of him when we voted him into office. Democrats like union officials and the League of Women Vultures (James Michael Curley's term for them) and the Democratic elite can't stand the guy. However, he's doing such a good job, the Democrats are trying to find an opponent for next year against him. Mayor Setti Warren has announeed for the job but he's not a prime time candidate. He's also just arrived at Newton City Hall and most of his Newton liberal allies aren't happy with his wonderlust. You know Brown is strong when liberals go whacky over him. Recently, he confused them again by saying he would vote against House Bud- get Chairman Paul Ryan's House budget and Medicare overhaul. Liberals were surely secretly rooting for him to support Ryan so they could go negative on that move. But Brown messed their plans up when he decided to vote against the Ryan Budget when it came to a Senate vote. Brown believes Ryan's plan would expose older Americans to increasing coasts of deductibles and co-pays. Said Brown, "I fear that as health inflation rises, the cost of private plans will out- grow the government premium support and the elderly will be forced to pay even higher deductibles and co-pays." He also added that "Medicare has already taken significant cuts to help pay for Obama's health care plan," putting seniors "at risk of losing their Medicare Advan- tage coverage." In short, Brown said Ryan's Medicare overhaul is harmful. Liberals are out of luck ff they were waiting to pounce on him like a hun- gry rodent. -Festa Nazionale della Repubblica by Elena Lucco Bolera (Photo by Rosario Scabin, Ross Photography) On June 2, 2011 the Italian Consulate celebrated the 62"d Anniversary of Republic Day at the Museum of Fine Arts. A diverse group of attendees from the Italian, busi- ness and scholarly communities enjoyed the evening. "While we remember and celebrate the past we need to think about the future. -- Said General Consul Giuseppe Pastorelli -- We are a strong and resilient community, proud of its heritage and its endeavors. To continue to grow we must stand united, work hand in hand with our American friends and the American institutions, build strong bridges with other communities and present the best that Italy can offer." During his speech Pastorelli underlined also the growing importance of Italian language teaching: "We mast support the teaching of Italian, which has an ever- increasing appeal and whose demand in New England is growing every day". More than three hundred people took part in the event. Lavish refreshments were served while a young Italian band from Berklee College of Music performed. In the year of 150 th Anniversary from unification, June 2 nd was an even more special day in Italy, a moment to reflect on country's history and on events that marked nation.
