Senator Scott Brown appeared to support spreading the Massachusetts universal health care to other states in his third debate against challenger Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday night in Springfield.
“I was proud as a state senator to work on our health care bill which actually ensures 98% of our people,” Brown said.
But “the federal bill which my opponent supports and I don’t actually raises taxes, 18 new taxes, which are about it kick in and actually some of them are doing it right now,” Brown said. Brown said he couldn’t support the Affordable Care Act’s changes to Medicare and its “one size fits all” approach.
But “I believe that everybody should have health care, that’s why I’ve supported what we did here in Massachusetts,” Brown said. “I think other states should be incentivized to do what we’ve done. We can go and tell them what we’ve done and how we’ve done it and let them do what we did but to think that the federal government can tell Massachusetts, where we have the best doctors and nurses and hospitals in the world — it’s unacceptable,” Brown said.
Brown previously caught a bit of flak when it was revealed that he still keeps his 23-year-old daughter Ayla on his insurance, despite the fact that he opposes Obamacare, which allows him to do so.
