What Senator-Elect Brown (R-MA) Had to Say About Health Care

By January 20, 2010Health Care

From Scott Brown’s victory speech Tuesday.

One thing is clear, voters do not want the trillion-dollar health care bill that is being forced on the American people.

This bill is not being debated openly and fairly. It will raise taxes, hurt Medicare, destroy jobs, and run our nation deeper into debt. It is not in the interest of our state or country – we can do better.

When in Washington, I will work in the Senate with Democrats and Republicans to reform health care in an open and honest way. No more closed-door meetings or back room deals by an out of touch party leadership. No more hiding costs, concealing taxes, collaborating with special interests, and leaving more trillions in debt for our children to pay.

In health care, we need to start fresh, work together, and do the job right. Once again, we can do better.

    I am absolutely thrilled with Brown’s victory and the message it sends to Washington. However, the actions of government leaders in my state (Illinois) and in Washington have made me suspicious of all politicians. Brown looks promising–but so have lots of others—until they got to Washington. I will withhold judgement, good or bad, on Brown until we see how he conducts himself on the Senate floor.
    Just to make my point–read over that third paragraph above–it is amazingly similar to the message Obama delivered during his campaign–and look at how that turned out!!
