Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), now a U.S. Senate candidate in New Hampshire, said that his job isn’t to create jobs. That’s for other Americans.
Instead, he said, his job is to get the government out of the way.
Brown made the comments at a town hall in Hudson, New Hampshire on Wednesday. The comments were flagged by the opposition research shop American Bridge 21st Century. His comments were in response to a question about what he would to do bring jobs to New Hampshire.
“Here’s the thing, people say, what are you going to do to create jobs? I am not going to create one job, it is not my job to create jobs. It’s yours,” Brown said. “My job is to make sure that government stays out of your way so that you can actually grow and expand. Obamacare’s a great example. The number one job inhibitor is Obamacare.
Brown went on to say that Obamacare has to be repealed.
“We have to repeal it and let businesses know that they can in fact not be having to put their hours below 30, that they have to keep their employees down below 50.”
