BRET BAIER: The story is one of many cases that make health care coverage a central issue in the up coming senatorial election. Polls show Obamacare scoring poorly in New Hampshire as it does elsewhere.It could be a liability for one term Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen, whose vote ensured the bill would become law. And it may be what boosts her opponent. It wouldn’t be the first time.
SCOTT BROWN: People do not want the trillion dollar health care plan that is being forced
BAIER: Republican Scott Brown won a special election for the late Ted Kennedy's Senate seat in liberal Massachusetts four years ago.
BROWN: That is being forced on the American people.
BAIER: His campaign was widely seen as a referendum on Obamacare, not yet a long. Despite his victory, the Affordable Care Act was passed through unusual legislative maneuvers soon after Brown arrived in Washington. Which may be why he's back on the campaign trail, this time in New Hampshire running against Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
BROWN: I want to run to be the 51st senator to repeal Obamacare because as they rammed it through Congress, we can actually do it the same way and repeal it. Then go back and develop a plan that works for the states.
BAIER: The average of the latest polls show Shaheen with a solid lead. We tried to speak to Senator Shaheen for months to discuss her stance on health care, but she would not talk to us.
BROWN: She was the deciding vote to implement a health care bill that people didn't want. She voted against every grandfathering amendment to protect people’s doctors, nurses and hospitals.
BAIER: Brown believes people will vote for him because of many issues not just Obamacare but there is no denying it will play a significant part in this race.
