How badly do they want to stop health care reform? Well, here are a couple of the latest examples of bragging rights from Florida candidates who want to stand in the way of you and health care reform.
Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio:
That’s not all folks! Florida Attorney General, and candidate for governor Republican Bill McCollum is even willing to sue the federal government if the health care bill passes:
Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum told his counterparts in other states Tuesday that he plans to sue the federal government once Congress passes its health care overhaul — assuming the final reform still contains a mandate that individuals have insurance or pay penalties.
“Presumably one of the provisions penalizing individuals who do not buy health insurance will be in any final legislation which becomes law, and if so, I intend to pursue litigation to challenge it,” McCollum wrote to the National Association of Attorneys General.
McCollum also said he was forming a “coalition of state agencies” to examine the impacts of whatever plan passes. Pretty sure they have been doing that for months.
Remember last year when Alan Grayson (D-FL) gave a description of the GOP health care plan and was chastised severely by the Republicans for making such a comment? This what he said:
“The Republican health care plan: don’t get sick,” he said. But, he added,”The Republicans have a back up plan in case you do get sick … This is what the Republicans want you to do. If you get sick America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly!”
For all the GOP whining over this, they have certainly made this argument very well for themselves. So much so that, even if it passes, apparently they will sue to make it so.
So GOP, tell us again exactly, who are on those “Death Panels?”
