Rubio campaigns in NH, talks health care, political future


Florida Senator Marco Rubio says he's supporting Scott Brown to avoid seeing Nevada Senator Harry Reid remain in control of U.S. Senate.

Rubio was in New Hampshire Thursday making campaign appearance with Republican candidate for Governor Walt Havenstein and Republican Second District candidate Marilinda Garcia. He made a campaign appearane with Brown several weeks ago at a foreign policy town hall.

In a interview with NH1 Radio News Director Jeff Wade, Rubio said one of the reasons he hopes Republicans gain control of the Senate is to address the issue of health care, specifically the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

The Senator says he's putting together legislation that he hopes to roll out next month that addresses some of the problems he sees with the Obama-backed plan.

"It is something that will allow every American to use pre-tax money, or tax credits, to buy a health insurance plan that meets their needs at a cost they can afford from any company in America that will sell it to you."

Rubio has been mentioned as a possible 2016 Presidential candidate. When asked about his political future, the Senator said "The decision for me is: Where is the best place for me to further that agenda? Is it from a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate, or is it as a Presidential candidate? And that's the choice I'll have to make here over the next few weeks as we get into the end of this year and into the early part of next year."
