Skip to comments.Florida AG Pam Bondi lets the cat out of the bag regarding Romney's National Healthcare plans
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 Romneys 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 Romneys Health Care Advisory Team when hes 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!!
Live free or die!!
Pray people. Pray.
FL AG PAM BONDI is nearing 100% corrupt.
She literally is the modern equivalent to the corrupt Reconstructionist Prosecutor turning over Georgians’ (Floridians’) land to carpetbagging Northerners, She is Gov Scott’s Janet Reno fall guy. She’s in over her head, she’s incapable, and incompetent, is being led around by the nose quite literally by cell phone speed dial convos by a small group of Gov Scott’s closest circle who happen to be the most corrupt lawyers and power brokers in Florida’s Big Law law firms.
It has been reported extensively across the foreclosure fraud/robosigning/mortgage fraud investigative/activist blogosphere, much of it has been crossposted it to FR repeatedly.
Sorry for linking to HuffPo, but the above accusations are verboten topics in Republican friendly media:
Martin Fiorentino, senior exec of CSX,
Robert Shimberg, senior law partner in FL,
a host of others.
Dixie Mafia out of Jacksonville, a bunch of big time players, they tell Pam Bondi what Pam Bondi’s opinion is and who Pam Bondi endorses.
I was a supporter of Bondi’s. No longer. I’m D.O.N.E. with her!
While supposedly arguing against Obamacare? Not possible...she's just commited treason against the people as well IMO. This is going to be good when Newt plays it out.
Isn’t it odd when Romney’s alliances do the interest/influence peddler it is alright though, another candidate can be brutally attacked as an influence peddler. Gosh, what a bunch of rotten crooks ..and they wonder why there is such anger on the streets.
It only took 36k for a governor...prob 10k for an AG.
We could blow the walls in around us....
Samson redeemed himself with such a manuever. It differs from the run-of-the-mill suicide bomber because 1) They were the actual enemies of God, and 2) He had no other alternatives for physical resistance.
I watch Bondi on Greats show..
She was wrong on many “facts” she shared..
Who will keep her honest?..
Which journalist will follow the money?..
Without the profit motive gov’t has no reason to be efficient..
Whether it is State or Federal government take profit out of health care it HAS TO GET more expensive..
Anybody notice Drudge changed his link to FR?
Call me a naive liberal, but I took great pride in this woman fighting Obamacare for us all. Frankly, I thought she hung the moon. Much to my shock, I just watched her on Greta to find that she has instead permanently hung Romney from her chin for money. I am so disillusioned.
This is perfect for the FL weekend - Bondi should resign now as AG for supporting Romneycare, which according to McCollum is no different from Obamacare. McCollum was the FL AG that was the first to file lawsuit against Obamacare... BTW supportss Gingrich
Your dead on right.
Notice he DEFENDED his Mass. signing in the Fla. debate quite vigorously when called on it by R. Santorum. (The liberal Mass. Kennedy state.)
An election for Mass-Mitt, is the insidious COVER the Eastern Bloc, is waiting for. As they then can claim that BOTH “parties” are behind this shackling of every citizen!
Arbeitsziehungslager. No protection from the shackles for anyone outside of fascist government.
I watched and TIVO’d the replay of Greta to make certain. You have it right. Bondi is thrilled that Romney has already asked her to serve on his Presidential Task Force on Health Care for the States!
Bondi is on board with pushing the states to do a health insurance mandate just like Romneycare.... http://yfrog.com/nq5hpz
Full video Greta on the Record Bondi now on youtube.
So now Bondi speaks for all the candidates, I have heard no one say that the states should be mandating healthcare insurance except Romney...
Jim is there a video of this? If I can find one I’ll pass it on to the area Tea Party sites.
Fred just post a link at reply 67 above and I added it as the source link. Thanks, Fred!
Thank you George H.W. Bush!
Does anyone have a link to the full Pam Bondi clip?
I live in FL and would like to send it out to as many people as possible. Pam Bondi should resign NOW if she wants to impose RomneyCare in FL.
Okay.. I’m not a sports person, but don’t all sports have a move called a “fake”?
Pam Bondi looks like a cheerleader to me... just need to figure out who she’s rooting for.
How so? It’s still there and still points here. What changed?
I’m sure Drudge will be all over this. Sarc!
Excellent, Thanks very much, Fred!
I can ditch my TIVO.
Just in case anyone doesn't know or remember, Bondi inherited Florida's lawsuit over Obamacare -- she didn't come up with the idea and didn't initiate the lawsuit on her own. Bill McCollum, Florida's attorney general before Bondi, filed that lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Treasury and the Department of Labor.
AG race will decide future of health care legal battle
By: Brady Calhoun
News Herald (Panama City, FL)

With a pending federal lawsuit over the national health care overhaul, whom you vote for could help determine how the lawsuit plays out.
Bill McCollum, Florida's attorney general and a Republican candidate for governor, filed a lawsuit against theU.S.Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Treasury and the U.S. Department of Labor in March, alleging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional. The lawsuit, which was filed in the Northern District of Florida, was joined by more than 12 attorneys general.
Two Democrats and four Republicans are vying to replace McCollum: State Sen. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach; Sen. Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres; former Hillsborough Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi; Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, Jim Lewis, R-Fort Lauderdale, and Holly Benson, ...
He’s going to institute Romneycare in the states and Bondi intends to help him!
It would be interesting to know how much money Romney, Inc. contributed to Bimbo Bondi’s election efforts.
Bondi’s political advisers in FL are Brett Doster and Mike Hanna, who are Romney backers. Doster is Romney’s senior Florida strategist.
Has this been discussed yet?
BREAKING: Romney campaign may be paying fake supporters

Direct link to the YouTube video (shot by a RonPaul supporter):
Romney Supporters Paid to be Romney Supporters
With all due respect, that is not what I heard. I just heard that he wants the states to be able to decide to do whatever they want to do in their state regarding healthcare. I HATE Romney, especially after what he did yesterday, but I really did not hear the same thing that you did. Just sayin’
“States can establish a religion, fed govt cant...”
What kind of weed are these elites inhaling?
Lately I notice "Concerned Christians" who post "We're 100% behind Gingrich, but..." and then, bible verses. Exact same people who keep putting up threads how "I don't like Romney, but..." and there's a homily on how we should never criticize another's religion.
Oh yeah, so shrewd.
We need to cover Florida with this before the election next Tuesday. Right now the numbers are shaky.
I have known since day one that Romney would never repeal Obamacare, at best he would tweak it and do something similar to what this article describes.
Well, why does he need a Healthcare Task Force then?
By the way, it turns out the video linked is only part of the interview. Bondi goes on to say that President Romney’s healthcare task force will work to get rid of ObamaCare then go on to create good healthcare. She says 25 of the governors and attorney generals signed on to the lawsuit against ObamaCare endorse Romney and his plan. They are claiming it’s a states rights issue, but they very definitely want to push the states into mandated RomneyCare-like plans.
States rights is a great thing, but states rights do not trump individual rights! Romney and his socialist comrades want to overlook that little point because they do not believe in individual liberty. That is clear. If they did they wouldn’t push this socialist crap.
Newt understands and openly declares that WE THE PEOPLE are the sovereigns and that the government derives its just powers at the consent of the governed (us). And that our unalienable rights come from God and cannot be taken away by government whether led by a Marxist like Obama or a socialist/statist like Romney! The Declaration of Independence clearly spells out our recourse when the government becomes abusive or destructive to our established republican form of government or our God given Liberty!
This is why I back Ron paul, Despite some of his kookiness. He is the only one w a record against this stuff.
Obamacare offers politicians the biggest pot of money to play with since Medicare was created.
Politicians love to play with other people’s money, so it is not a surprise to see established politicians favoring a “reformed” Obamacare that still allows them to play with trillions.
The First Amendment reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...”
Technically, I guess that leaves the matter up to the States.
It will never be repealed because many Republicans have wanted some of its major provisions, such as community ratings and accountable care organizations, for years.
Don’t forget - HMOs were created under Nixon as a “public-private partnership” approach toward nationalized health care. As long as private businesses get to profit, most Republican leaders couldn’t care less about quality of care or individual liberty.
You totally misunderstand. That is a true comment about the Constitution.
Why...instead of creating brand new apparati (see the Boehner chart on 0bamacare)don’t we just start by fixing Medicare and Medicaid? Add portability of private plans and open up competition by being able to buy insurance across state lines. I still defer to Bobby Jindahl on this issue...he had a 10 point plan, he also has a PhD in Healthcare policy.
I can’t remember all of it..but he was for being able to carry your chidren until age 26, it lowers costs by having a larger risk pool. Younger people don’t use medical services nearly as much as older folks..so the costs are spread over a larger pool. That made perfect sense to me.
Good catch, I saw this too. Isn’t that also a promise of a job for Bondi, which is a valuable f——g thing, according to Blago? It’s also against the law.
Jim, it is late and much work is needed. If the bastards want their boy they do so without me. I choose a dogfight to the end. Hell is near.
An older article on Bobby Jindahl’s accomplishmnets in this area. I hope Newt asks him to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. I can think of no one more qualified than he to lead real reform in this area.
Jim, you are exactly right.
The one thing that’s important to understand, though, is that Obamcare/Romneycare is the FIX (or the fulfillment) of all the socialist interventions that have occurred since the 50s in American medicine.
The reason Pelosi was able to produce a 2400 page bill in 3 days was that the “bill” was just a text dump of ideas that have been kicking around in healthcare policy since the 60s. Most of Obamacare has existed as a draft proposal, or proposals, for forty years or more.
It never, never would have seen the light of day unless the red termites, gnawing away at our foundations, had not already caused enormous damage.
Just like, by the time you have to call Terminix , there may be bad structural damage, the repeal of Obamacare will reveal the damage already done to US medicine, and a lot of fixing remains ahead of us.
