The Associated Press obtained excerpts from Scott Brown’s announcement that he will formally enter the Senate race in New Hampshire and apparently someone told him this would be a winning message.
“Along with our money and our health plans, for a lot of us, it feels like we’re losing our liberty, too. Obamacare forces us to make a choice, live free or log on — and here in New Hampshire, we choose freedom,” Brown planned to tell supporters Thursday night.
Live free or log on?
I don’t think Scott Brown is really this monumentally stupid; I think this is a cynical ploy that won’t come off as genuine.
And how could it? Live free or log on? Less than 7 percent of New Hampshire’s insured obtains health insurance on the individual market according to the Associated Press. Is Scott Brown going to win an election with the 22,000 people who sacrificed their liberty by accessing healthcare.gov ahead of the March 31st deadline?
Medicaid has been expanded in New Hampshire, covering as many as 50,000 people who previously had no health insurance. Does Scott Brown choose “freedom” and liberty(!) for them?
Choosing “freedom” for them means kicking them off their healthcare.
With the law’s success, campaigning against Obamacare will soon become just as toxic as campaigning against Medicare or Social Security.
