What a hypocrite! What an opportunist! Please, DO NOT vote for incumbent “US Senator” Scott Brown (see nude center fold pic below!). Let’s not lose important programs because Brown is pandering to Independent voters! This guy will do/say anything to get elected, even vote “no” THREE TIMES for a program his family takes advantage of!
A vote for Brown’s opponent, Elizabeth Warren, is a vote for programs that help all Americans stay healthy and strong – even Scott Brown’s kids. (We are certain Brown could have insured his daughter without the govt footing the bill, but hey, that’s our US Senator – Scotty Brown-nose!) – R. Tirella

“U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, who won office vowing to be the 41st vote to block President Obama’s health care law and who has since voted three times to repeal it, acknowledged Monday that he takes advantage of it to keep his elder daughter on his congressional health insurance plan.
” ”Of course I do,” the Massachusetts Republican told the Globe.
“Brown is insuring his daughter Ayla, a professional singer who is 23 years old, under a widely popular provision of the law requiring that family plans cover children up to age 26.
“Brown said the extended use of his congressional coverage is not inconsistent with his criticism of the federal law, enacted over his objection after he won a special election in 2010, because the same coverage could be required by individual states.
“On the campaign trail this year, Brown has said he still wants to repeal the law, which he argues is inferior to the health care law enacted by Massachusetts in 2006.
” ”I’ve said right from the beginning, that if there are things that we like, we should take advantage of them and bring them back here to Massachusetts,” the senator said.
“As to whether the federal law should be repealed or rewritten, Brown replied: “I’ve already voted to repeal it. You know where I stand on this. This isn’t news.”
“His political opponent said that Brown is being hypocritical.
” ”Sen. Scott Brown has gone Washington,” said Alethea Harney, spokeswoman for Democrat Elizabeth Warren.
” “He says he likes being able to keep his daughter on the family health insurance plan. What he doesn’t say is that he voted to stop other parents from doing the same.” “
Brown’s daughter, according to the Globe article, is a “former “American Idol” contestant” who “has worked as a correspondent for the CBS “Early Show” and is a professional singer.”
The Globe states: “Brown’s younger daughter, Arianna, is 21 and graduating after just three years at Syracuse University. She, too, will be able to keep her coverage under the congressional plan through the Obama law.
” ”I’ve always said that I love covering my daughter until 26 years old,” Brown said in an interview … .“
