Charlie Crist's two views on the heath care bill

27

August

Charlie Crist July 29: ...The Obama health care bill was too big, too expensive, and expanded the role of government far too much. Had I been in the United States Senate at the time, I would have voted against the bill because of unacceptable provisions like the cuts to the Medicare Advantage program. But being an independent, I have the freedom to be an honest broker for the people of Florida without regard for political party, and the reality is this: despite its serious flaws, the Obama health care bill does have some positive aspects.

Charlie Crist on Aug. 27: “I would have voted for it but I think it can be done better. I really do.”
