Skip to comments.Frist: Don't repeal health care bill (Put a lid on it has-been RINOs)
Posted on 01/18/2011 3:39:10 PM PST by tobyhill
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?"

It’s just hard to fathom how Frist could make sucn a vile and condescending statement. I hope the people of Tennessee will take action.
His family owns and/or operates a whole slew of hospitals. He is immensely wealthy. Follow the money.
"...an organization he chairs with former Democratic Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, among others - that the law should stand, according to The Huffington Post."
His a** needs to be cuddled and snuggled by the tip of my boot.
Gingrich, Frist, Lott...playing footsies with Tiny Tax Cheat Timmy Daschle.
“The mentality of a GOP leader.” You’ve got that right. What do they say, power corrupts? Our guys go down there to DC, and it’s not long... maybe 2 terms, and they’re suddenly reach-across-the-aisle RINOs. Only a few, Jesse Helms comes to mind, stay true to their conservative principles. An active Tea Party, though, will help keep our guys on the reservation.
fukc him...his wants his family biz HCA to get the gravy from forced insurance
what a bitchboy
>WTF is the matter with this guy?<
He doesn’t give a flip because as a former member of the Senate, he’s exempt.
He and his family own HCA so they will somehow make billions if nobamacare isn’t rejected. frist is a rich idiot with absolutely no redeeming qualities.
Frist is of the Liberal side of the GOP Meaning he was and is of the Bush/Rockefeller side of it. We have two more Tennessee U.S. senators just like him Corker and long time Bush friend Alexander who never met a DEM or more big governnment idea he could not vote for either. Well most the time anyway.
If they don’t kill this entirely, it will come back again and again and again.
What is wrong with First? Can’t he perform math and read anymore? What a major kook.
