Will Charlie Crist answer these two simple questions?
Former Republican Governor, turned Independent, turned Democrat, Charlie Crist , has chimed in on the ongoing healthcare debate in Tallahassee, Florida. Crist stated on his Facebook fan page that if he was Governor, he and the legislature would cut into his tanning time and work until a compromised was hammered out.
Crist’s rant is in response to Senator Joe Negron’s healthcare bill that would accept more than $50 billion of those pesky federal dollars and “offer coverage to more than 1 million Floridians” under Obamacare.
As we wrote yesterday, according to the AP,
“the bill would not expand Medicaid but give money to residents to purchase
private insurance.” House Speaker Will Weatherford and his fellow
representatives are standing their ground, and are not willing to accept any
dollars that are tied to Obamacare.”
We added that “State
representatives have passed a law that would use $237 million “in state funds”
to give 115,000 Floridians healthcare. Either way you slice it, whether its
federal or state funded healthcare, its still government assistance.
Here is Crist’s Facebook
Republican Charlie Crist,
I mean Independent, ahhhh! Darn it! I mean, Democrat Charlie Crist seems to
forget that during his only term as Governor, he was more focused
on being Vice President, and then when he decided to run for the U.S.
Senate, he was too busy appeasing Democrats and flip-flopping on just about
every issue he ever stood on.
So how credible is
Crist’s statement, considering his principle lacking track record?
In reality, we don’t know what the
ever-evolving Charlie Crist would have really done with this healthcare issue, were
it have happened during his term as Governor?
I think if Charlie is so
concerned about Floridians, then maybe he should answer Speaker Will
If he wants to be Governor so bad again,
if he wants to come back to the state of Florida, and lead our state, why did
he leave us when we had a 12% unemployment rate, and the state of Florida was
having its hardest times? Weatherford continued,” Florida really needed a
leader and stick up for them, why did he chose to leave?
I don’t know how he is going to answer it. -Rep.

These are pretty simple
and straightforward questions. What say you, Charlie?
