Florida AG Pam Bondi lets the cat out of the bag regarding Romney's National Healthcare plans
From a segment on Greta ^ | Jan 27, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 01/27/2012 9:52:38 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi who's fighting to repeal ObamaCare appeared on Greta, tonight, defending RomneyCare. She says Romney’s health care plan is not the same as ObamaCare and, in fact, Romney's plan reduces costs. She goes on to say that Romney wants all states to impose similar laws (including mandates) and that she and is all for it.

She went on to explain that she's going to be on Romney’s Health Care Advisory Team when he’s president!

What this means is that while Romney may say he wants to repeal ObamaCare, he actually agrees with it. He believes that RomneyCare, ie, ObamaCare is a model health care plan and all states should impose similar plans.

RomneyCare and ObamaCare are the same thing. The only difference is that Romney's was imposed at the state level where Obama's was imposed nationally.

RomneyCare = ObamaCare = taxpayer funded abortion = death panels = socialism = government force = fascism = tyranny!!

So Romney and his co-conspirators in the GOP establishment are now planning a National Healthcare Task Force to impose top-down government run national healthcare on all 50 states!!

We all know what Reagan said about government by a group of elites and that socialism would be imposed on America through socialized health care. Well, welcome to the Socialist States Of America if Romney is elected.

If the GOP does this then the hell with them!!

This is tyranny!!

We are the resistance!!

Rebellion is on!!

Go, Tea Party!!

Go, Newt!!

Live free or die!!

Exsqueeze me, but isn’t Florida one of the states suing over Obamacare? I am pretty sure McCollum (AG at the time) was the first state AG to sue Obama admin. Bondi is nuts...

You’re not wrong Jim. What is it with these so-called Conservative Republicans? So many have sold their souls to the power devil just to stay in the power crowd that can do something for them. I’m disappointed in Pam Bondi......along with many others.

And if Bain Capital figures out someway to make money off of Romneycare, then Romney will be able to say that attacking Romneycare is the same as attacking capitalism.

It is still tyranny if the states are forced into little Romneyesque cares by the Feds.

The only way Romney isn’t raked over the costs is if he disavows Romneycare as a huge mistake.

Yup. And how would Obama use this in an attack on Romney if he gets the nomination? Pardon me, it wouldn’t be an attack. If he says that Romney actually wants to impose Obama/RomneyCare on the states, he’d just be saying the truth.

And if Bondi argues for RomneyCare and it’s mandates and favors imposing similar plans on all 50 states, how in the hell can she possibly argue against ObamaCare in the Supreme Court? This is NUTS!!

Romney is a sure loser.

This story is the tip off for several things.

One is that she will sell her soul for an appointment to the Romney government.

But the real zinger is that this story is the tip off that Romney will not repeal obummer care.

Remember that one of his advisers said earlier in the week that obummer care would never be repealed, only modified.

Now this story.

After Romney gets in, he will come to the conclusion after long and thoughtful study that repealing obummer care is not possible because......

Fill in the blanks with whatever....and it will not be repealed.

We are about to get snookered.

You’re not wrong. She who cannot be named telegraphed the GOP Elites’ plan last night with a tweet that said:

“States can establish a religion, fed govt can’t. states can require health insurance, fed govt can’t.”

So they want to use the 10th amendment to shove RomneyCare down our throats. WTF happened to her?!

Bondi had “political climber” written all over her before she opened her mouth. Cute, smart and a climber at the expense of the country throwing in with Myth.

GRETA will rerun in 10 minutes. If there is a coherent difference between Romney and Obama we’ll see it, but I gotta ask, whose version are we going to believe going in, Rush’s, or Bondi’s, which comes with a check and a resume enhancer? No contest.

Also, Greta spent the day with Newt. I believe she got the scoop on Bondi, and I thought Greta, at sign off with Bondi, was chilly and gave her rather short shrift. Pam, however, remained cheerfully on Cloud 9 with her new appointment to the Romney team. blech.

ON THE RECORD

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi – goes ON THE RECORD at 10pm!
by Greta Van Susteren Posted in: national health care, Pam Bondi

NOV 14 2011 - 6:20 PM ET

Attorney General Pam Bondi is one of the leaders in the state challenges to the national health care law.  She is pleased with the news out of Washington today.

The US Supreme Court announced today that it WILL take the case and WILL decide whether the national health care law is constitutional or not.  The main focus, but not total focus, is on the individual mandate clause. Is that clause within the commerce clause power of the government or not? In other words, can Congress pass a statute requiring you to buy health insurance?

I have no idea what the Court will decide.  I have heard both sides say “I am confidant…”  I don’t know what they are drinking since no one knows how the Supreme Court will decide this issue. 

It was obvious the Court would take the case and decide it — but what no one knows is WHAT the Supreme Court will decide.  We should expect a decision by the end of June 2012 (6 months prior to the November election.)

I heard that interview. My impression was that she was bought off by Romney for a political appointment. What an empty class less person. Seems corrupt to me. She agrees each state should have a state run health insurance. Our country is being transformed by the people of the republican party. Wonder when people will wake up.

That is certainly not true. So far as I know the State of Florida did not have a state church when it entered the union in 1845, nor did it claim such a right when it presented its constitution to congress. Unlike slavery, a state church was not a domestic institution. By that time, all states had disestablished their churches, so that this is an exorbitant claim. Ironically, the very reason why "Deseret" could not get admitted to the union was that it DID have an establishment of religion, and one far more powerful than any religious establishment in American history, excepting that of Massachusetts Bay while that colony had a charter conveying such authority on it.

Statism run riot. And THIS is a "conservative?"

This is the moment when the nice, cuddly Republicans who seemed so friendly suddenly morph into the slimy, nasty, monstrous socialists that they were all along. How she can justify wasting state taxpayer money fighting Obamacare when as soon it's overturned, she's going to institute the same program in her state? Isn't that like fighting to overturn Roe vs. Wade and then passing taxpayer-funded abortion for all in your state immediately after? This is one reason people need to be clearer when they're arguing issues of states' right. We have to talk about why these policies are bad whether they're implemented by the federal government or a state government. Isn't it nice how she waited until right after the debate to reveal this, and now there isn't another debate for 3 weeks?

I’ve come to the stark realization over these many years and peaking in the last week that if you run or align yourself with the RNC, than you are completely beholden to it (including some tea party candidates) It’s almost like the RNC hold our reps patent.

We need conservative candidates who are brave enough to drop the (R).

I know this sounds like 3rd party talk and maybe it’s some frustration as well. But, it seems like the 2 parties are coalescing into one. A closet dictatorship.

Ever notice those great medical breakthrough treatments that get announced, they are almost always available 5 or 10 years down the road, of course you have a disease that will kill you in 1 or 2 years.

That is where we are in this situation, there is a cure just ahead, but we probably will not live to see it.
