Charlie Crist in Florida Would Not Scrap Obamacare but Can't Identify Parts Worth Keeping

by the Left Coast Rebel

Charlie Crist (RINO-FL) coming out swinging and giving ample fodder to liberty activists and Tea Partiers with an admission made to the Palm Beach Post. Apparently he isn't 'quite so against' Obamacare or at least entirely ambiguous about it and the Democratic socialized medicine power grab. Are you listening Marco Rubio campaign team. Do you guys and gals in the Mark Rubio campaign camp need help making a soon-to-be viral video of Crist admitting this? Here's the excerpt from Post on Politics:

“There may be parts of it that you don’t have to scrap. There are three parts of it that I would like to see scrapped: It would raise taxes significantly, it would raise rates significantly and it would take half-a-trillion dollars out of Medicare.

“I think the real issue here, as it relates to health care, is that people want it to not cost so much and people want to have access to it. I think there is a consensus of agreement that the health care that is delivered in America is good. But it’s not easy to get it and it’s too expensive when you do get it.”

Asked if there were any parts of the bill he liked, Crist said:

“I don’t think a whole lot. Watching the discussion yesterday (Thursday) you get a chance to sort of see more of it be ferreted out. You know, I’m the kind of guy … I’m pragmatic. The stimulus is a great example. We needed the money. Every other Republican governor took it, too. I was just maybe a little more honest and straight forward about it. Well, shame on me for being honest. But, you know, as it relates to health care, if there are good ideas, I’m willing to look at them. And I would take that same approach to any issue in Washington.”

Asked again if there were any parts he liked he said:

“Not at present. No.”

Not one good idea?

“There may be. There may be. You know, I’m pretty focused on Florida right now. I mean, after the session I’ll be more focused on the issues in Washington. But I’ve got to do my first job first.”

Memo to the Marco Rubio campaign - do you guys need help making this go viral?

  1. I'm sure "We The People" of Florida already know Charlie Crist is an idiot... I'll be forwarding a link to this to a young lady in our 9/12 Project group who is currently working on Marco's election team, though I'd bet they're already all over this...
