Brown hammers Shaheen’s ‘pay more’ O-Care plan, calls it ‘sad’

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.

    Sounds more like “desperate.” I have no idea what it’s going to take to get these Dems to wise up and admit obamacare was and is a huge mistake.

    Brown was supposed to “save us” in 2010 and I’m been disappointed in him but he is certainly better than Shaheen. I wonder if she’s signed up like Coburn has and found out she couldn’t keep her doctor.
