Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s plan to make Granite Staters pay more to keep their doctors and maintain access to their hospitals is “sad,” former U.S. Senator Scott Brown tells NH Journal exclusively today. Brown is considering a run against Shaheen in 2014.
“Her [Shaheen’s] so called ‘fix,’ shows how out of touch she is with the people of NH and this country,” Brown told NH Journal. “People are already paying a tremendous amount for their plans and her votes have denied them the ability to stick with the doctors, hospitals and plans they love. That is always the answer from the DC crowd, pay more. Sad.”
NH Journal reported on Monday that Shaheen is floating a plan that would allow people to continue visiting their pre-ObamaCare doctors and hospitals if they “are willing to pay more.”
“At least for people who are willing to pay more, that they have that option of going to their doctor and hospital no matter what their insurer does,” Shaheen said in a radio interview with WKXL last week.
Shaheen’s comments can be heard at 1:50 in the below clip.
