This idiocy should seal his fate in the Florida gubernatorial race. Is there anyone else alive who thinks the disaster know as ObamaCare has been great?
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (D) said Sunday that President Obama’s controversial healthcare law has been “great” for residents of his state.
Crist has sharply criticized the healthcare law in the past. But the former Republican governor and 2008 GOP vice-presidential short-lister is running for his old post this year as a Democrat this year.
Crist said during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he would have no problem running on the healthcare bill, which is known colloquially as ObamaCare, as he seeks to regain his former office.
“I don’t think so at all,” Crist said when he was asked if the healthcare law was hurting Florida citizens, especially seniors, as Republicans have alleged.
“I think it’s been great,” Crist continued. “I know the rollout was difficult, I’m sure the president feels that way too. I had the opportunity to visit with him Friday in Miami…I know that he has a compassionate heart. People getting healthcare is like a civil right. People need to have shelter, they need food, they water and they need healthcare and they deserve it. We’re the richest country in the world and we ought to provide it and God Bless [Obama] for doing it.”
Such idiocy should forever disqualify him from seeking public office.
“People on the other side are using that as a fear tactic and it’s wrong,” Crist said. “That’s why we have the Affordable Care Act, exactly why. To make sure that they don’t lose it in the future, that they have some place that they can, that they can get healthcare, and it’s more affordable than what they may have had before. That’s the whole idea, and that’s why I think at the end of the day, this is going to be a very popular program because it’s doing the right thing for the people of our country and my state.”
Not a word about the millions who lost their insurance.
