Scott Brown: GOP Must Stop 'Fired-Up' Obama

Sunday, 04 Apr 2010 05:10 PM

So what’s next for Sen. Scott Brown after Obamacare?

Brown, who became a national GOP sensation by capturing the Massachuesetts seat held by the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, says he will campaign heavily for Republican candidates and use his position to strike a hard bargain on other issues the "fired-up" Obama administration might try to push.

On health care, he's touting the mantra of "repeal and replace," he told Fox News. He wants to gut the current law and replace it with GOP alternatives, like the ability to purchase insurance across state lines, preventive and wellness programs, and medical malpractice reform.

"States should have the flexibility to solve the health care problems in a way that is best for their specific state," Brown told Fox News, just after the big health care vote that put the finishing touches on the massive overhaul of the industry. "I think it's going to be really bad for my state. It's going to cost us jobs. I mean, gosh, another $66 billion in Medicare cuts, increased taxes. ... It's a bad bill, and I think we can do better."

Brown also intends to focus on job creation. Asked by Fox News what's next following the health care vote, the senator said: "jobs, jobs, jobs."
"We've got to work on helping more people find jobs. That's why I offered the tax cut," Brown said, referring to his failed effort to give mostly middle-class Americans a short-term tax break. Democrats overwhelmingly opposed the measure.
