Senator Brown: Stop Distorting Ted Kennedy's Record
Senator Scott Brown,
This weekend, you received a letter from Patrick Kennedy, asking you to stop distorting his father's record on health care to support the Blunt Amendment, your extreme new proposal that would allow employers and insurance companies to refuse coverage of any health care service, for any reason, based on a vague “moral objection.”
The letter said:
“Providing health care to every American was the work of my father’s life. The Blunt Amendment you are supporting is an attack on that cause… My father never would have supported this extreme legislation.
You are entitled to your own opinions, of course, but I ask that, moving forward, you do not confuse my father’s positions with your own. I appreciate the past respect you have expressed for his legacy, but misstating his positions is no way to honor his life’s work.”
We ask that you respect the Kennedy family's wishes and stop invoking Senator Kennedy's name.
