Skip to comments.Frist: Don't repeal health care bill (Put a lid on it has-been RINOs)

A top Republican has come out against efforts by his party to repeal President Obama's health care reform bill currently underway in the House.
Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tennessee, said at a press conference Tuesday at the Bipartisan Policy Center - an organization he chairs with former Democratic Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, among others - that the law should stand, according to The Huffington Post.
"It is not the bill that [Republicans] would have written," he said. "It is not the bill that I would have drafted. But it is the law of the land and it is the platform, the fundamental platform, upon which all future efforts to make that system better, for that patient, for that family, will be based."
He added: "[The bill] has many strong elements," Frist added later. "And those elements, whatever happens, need to be preserved, need to be cuddled, need to be snuggled, need to be promoted and need to be implemented. But how do you do it? How do you do a lot of what is in this law?"

The only good thing frist ever did was save patraeus’ life. Otherwise, worthless rino.
SNuggled???Cuddled???? Are you freaking kidding me???? I have lost total respect for Frist. Now we know why the Republicans lost their way (and the election) of 2006.
Hanging out with Tiny Tom is apparently a mind blowing experience. Welcome to the logic free zone of ‘rats.
Enough said right there.
I wonder how much of a kickback Frist got to spit on the Hippocratic Oath. Et tu, Billy?
my first thought when I read those words was that the "Frist is gay or at least bi" rumors I read on Hillbuzz must be true. Hillbuzz tied Frist's trists with Obama to his love for Obamacare.
You don’t build on a foundation of horse manure.
I never did like Frist.
Frist needs to go home and STFU.
“Who has Frists address so that we can write to him?”
Not much use, as he is a FORMER senator.
I guess it was RINO Corker that replaced him.
Is this satire? He has to be kidding.
It’s not satire, it’s the RINO parade doing every interview they can to make themselves feel relevant.
I noticed this too. Cuddled and snuggled? More like rebuked and repealed in my view.
WTF is the matter with this guy?
Tune: "Marion" ("Rejoice, O Pilgrim Throng")
Repeal, reject, undo!
Declare it dead and pull the plug,
Before the bill comes due.
The bill Obama signed
Would take a year to read,
But Nancy rammed it down our throats,
And so did Harry Reid.
Now watch our health care costs
Rise high and higher still;
Obama spreads the wealth around
And makes us pay the bill.
Repeal, and do not fear
Obama's veto pen;
And when he sends back what we pass,
We'll pass it once again.
Repeal, reject, undo!
And come November 2012,
Repeal Obama too!
Oh yeah, another “top” republican. He’s working out of a lobby shop isn’t he?
Remember, his family owns a huge Medical firm. I am sure they will benefit from Bambi care
