Skip to comments.We're Screwed... Florida AG Pam Bondi Says Mitt Wants Romneycare In Every State
Posted on 01/28/2012 1:40:32 PM PST by dila813
The cat's out of the bag... Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, a Romney supporter, went on The Record last night. The Florida Republican told Greta Van Susteren that Mitt wants Romneycare in every state. She also said she would be on Romney's Health Care Advisory Team when he's president.
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!!
Now it all makes sense. Thanks for posting.
Bondi just may as well lose her job. Rick Scott wont put up with this shit.
I think Willard sees Romneycare as only for those who didn’t already have health insurance whereas Obamacare is going to force everyone into the national system. It’s an artificial difference but I’ve thought this is how he plans to lie through his teeth saying “I’ll repeal Obamacare”, only to replace it with his own version that’s just as bad.
Besides he can’t repeal anything without the consent of Congress. It may be possible to do things by executive order but Congress made the Obamacare Law and either the SCOTUS will have to overturn it or Congress will have to repeal it.
The only one who believes the President can do whatever he wants regardless of Congressional action is Obama.
Most pundits are claiming a big win for the cardboard man Tuesday.
Many believe though that Gingrich will stay in the race and continue the fight to the end.
I think you mean Bob not Mitch. I’m not sure the last name is spelled correctly either but I didn’t google it.
after seeing this, if Mitt wins the nomination, I am not going to be voting
Absolutely we are screwed. Mitt is a Liberal and will do WHATEVER he wants in the WH and the GOP majorities wont stop him. And we thought Hussein was bad.
Every state has emergency and managed care for people anyway. They think like nothing’s being done to suck dry taxpayers’ already. If it ain’t Romneycare it isn’t tanking the states hard enough already.
This is just so stupid. government is the fundamental problem with the medical system right now as it stands. If they hadn’t been screwing providers for ever paying a small fraction of the costs charged the hospitals wouldn’t have started inflating costs and trying to charge more for the people who were paying cash or cash/insurance. Then these shifted charges got so high nobody individually could generally pay on their own, so insurance companies had more and more to cover and started inflating costs because the burden for paying most costs shifted to them and they didn’t want to go bankrupt. Now toss in some companies across the board with greed and rewarding certain execs with millions and evne billions, and that doesn’t help things either.
But government started the whole crapfest.
So sorry, Elle Bee! I messed up, too! It is BILL McCollum. oh well...
(always spell check yourself, nancy!)
Then, there are those "mandates" that require people to put paying for medical insurance a FIRST DOLLAR OF INCOME item, ahead even of food, shelter and clothing.
People who think of doing that are, of course, dangerously mentally ill.
Romney's bad behavior Exposed by Seamus
"Romney Loses Nomination Over Dog Abuse? - Romney was traveling that summer with his wife, five sons, and Seamus to his parent's cottage on Lake Huron. But hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. .David Kravitz wrote on BlueMassGroup, a liberal blog. "It also strikes me as classic Romney: it solves a problem efficiently, in a business-like manner, and with no regard whatsoever for the suffering that the solution may cause."
"But the details of the event are more than unseemly - they may, in fact, be illegal. Massachusetts's animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal "in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon. "An officer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals responded to a description of the situation saying "it's definitely something I'd want to check out." The officer, Nadia Branca, declined to give a definitive opinion on whether Romney broke the law but did note that it's against state law to have a dog in an open bed of a pick-up truck, and "if the dog was being carried in a way that endangers it, that would be illegal."
"Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney's Pooch? - Scientists Say Dog Likely Experienced Wind-Whipped, Uncomfortable Trip - "Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. e'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog,".. Jordan Kaplan, the owner of Petaholics, a dog walking service in New York City,
and a lifelong dog owner and dog lover, said Romney's actions were uncalled for"
"Romney's dog - This is a distinction Mitt Romney probably could do without, but he is surely the first presidential candidate to be attacked for putting a dog with diarrhea in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon. Romney's defense: Seamus liked it. [like the citizens under Romney's RomneyCARE, etc.?] "
"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours. As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway."
Romney is nearly as much a socialist as Obama.
I don’t ant either.
Civil disobedience is a wonderful thing. Ask Mahatma Ghandi. O Sorry, he’s a goner. Well then, ask Cartouche. I say Occupy UTAH. Occupy MASSACHUSETTS. Occupy Wichita, Wichita Falls, Bedford Falls, Athol, Orange, West Orange, Pittsburg, Kansas, Pittburg, California and Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma and Pittsburg, Texas. Occupy Philadelphia. On the other hand, try Paris, Texas, Marshall, Missouri, Dodge City and Fort Dodge. If that doesn’t work occupy an old DC-3 at Rolla National Airport.
I say occupy the minds of the RNC. And if that wont do. CREATE a new party that WILL mirror what we will and will not stnd for. Take a dump on the RNC.
This is a nightmare situation. The tea party opposed Bill McCollum when he ran for governor and went for Rick Scott. But Bill is now looking to be better than Pam Bondi who replaced him. Such a shame when it seemed Pam was going to be great. Well Bill endorsed Newt and Pam went for Romney. Pam should be trying to stop Romneycare. Instead she is defending it. And the way the segment was set up, she was trying to counter argue what Rush said on his radio show. Which is that Romneycare is Obamacare.
And Pam is just confirming that Romney wants his plan to go national. Just like Norm Coleman did earlier in the week.
