From Eric Dondero:
Republican State Senator and nominee for US Senate in the special election to replace Ted Kennedy, Jan. 19, appeared on Fox's Hannity show last night. Among the topics discussed Health Care reform. Sen. Brown vowed to be the 41st vote against the measure when it comes up for final passage, thus blocking the bill.
"I would actually stop it, and ask them to go back to the drawing board..."During his comments he brought up an issue that has been highlighted here at Libertarian Republican in the last couple days - Military TriCare. Said Brown (approx. 2 minutes in):
"It's not good for Massachusetts. We already have 98% of our people insured. We're going to cut a half a trillion from Medicare, and then cut TriCare for Military people, and then have higher taxation, about a trillion-plus to pay for it..."Lt. Col. Brown is a 30-year Veteran of the Massachusetts National Guard.
