Scott Brown: Even If I Alter The Health Care Law, I Will Repeal It


"I'm not going to get into hypotheticals," he said when I asked him if he'd vote for a health care repeal. "I'm going to wait until something actually comes forth, so we can kind of figure it out."

"But I would repeal it," Brown added. When I asked if that position would change if his proposal -- which would allow states to essentially opt out of the federal reforms three years earlier than the law currently allows -- Brown shook his head.

Some have suggested that the Brown/Wyden plan would rescue the law from being overturned in the courts, should it come to that. But it seems that enacting his own plan still won't turn Brown into a reform backer.
