Bill Frist, invested in Obamacare, tells Republicans to let it be
Washington Examiner ^ | 1/19/11 | Timothy P. Carney

Posted on 01/19/2011 8:49:22 AM PST by Nachum

If you're a Republican, and you don't want the media to pry into your financial conflicts of interest, there used to be a simple method: support Democratic big-government policies. The latest Republican to try this rule is Bill Frist. Sam Stein at the Huffington Post reports: As congressional Republicans ready themselves for a largely symbolic effort to repeal President Obama's health care reform law, at least one former GOP leader is urging them to drop the charade and build on the legislation instead. Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist,

"Frist is a partner in a private investment firm that bets on health care companies -- and on regulation.... So Frist gets rich by helping pick the health care companies that will get rich. Now he's backing Obamacare -- and winning praise for it."

Another rat bastard who sold us out for his 2 pieces of silver.

One mistake people always make is in assuming that socialism makes everyone equally poor but that’s not quite true.

It makes most people equally poor while its “investors” get wealthy.

Bill First (mispelling intentional) and other insider pols and ex-pols don't even try to hide their corruption any more.

They know they can count on a controlled, bankrupt and zombied-out media to forego any coverage or investigative reporting on their crimes against the Republic.

Yeah.

Checked him out in the net. He was the Senate Majority Leader after he helped manipulate Trott (another loser) into resigning in face of some innocent comments Lott ade about a retiring Southern Congressman.

Yeah. Lott made the “horrifying” mistake of saying he would have voted for Strom Thurmond for president at Thurmond’s 100th birthday celebration.

Yes, Frist was the Senate Majority leader under Bush. He is/was a doctor/surgeon, and as spineless as Trent Lott.

No wonder he became a Senator. He couldn't make it as a surgeon. It stands to reason why he would support MaObamacare. He loves the Government/Socialist form of medicine.

Bill Frist was a doctor. Doctors hate Obamacare. Why on earth would Bill Frist support this? I wonder who got to him and what they have on him to make him betray both his country and his profession.

I am ready to give money to his replacement today.

Doesn't the Frist family own/run some hospitals? I remember something about that a few years back, and them doing abortion for profit.

Or am I thinking of someone else? Either way, he sounds like a pos RINO.

Not all professional medicine men are idealistic Dr. Kildares. Some conveniently forget their oath to "do no harm".

Some have figured out angles to profit off ObamaCare. They know there'll never be media examination for perfidy once the plan swings in.

Always follow the money trail whether it be doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief.....somewhere you'll always find a thief.

Stay out of it, Bill.

YOU in 2004 said YOU were “too weary” to fight democrat resistance to Bush’s Federal Court nominations. So keep your nose and the rest of your pansy-assed RINO self out of this battle.

You are correct.

And we are still paying for the Bush/Frist “legacy”.

No more Bushes, no more Frists.

No, Bill we will NOT "let it be."

The vast majority of us didn't want this socialist healthcare program, but it was rammed down our throats by Obama, Pelosi, Reid and all of that other nasty, slimy vermin.

Go crawl back under your rock.

The boys over at HillBuzz say Frist has a secret....

Maybe that's why he's supporting Barry-O on this.
