WS Journal slaps Crist again



The Wall Street Journal editorial board seems to be no big fan of Charlie Crist. Jumping on Jeb Bush's recent criticism of Florida's insurance reform efforts, the paper today take another shot at Crist: "Rather than spreading the financial risk across the world-wide private insurance market, Mr. Crist's plan seeks to concentrate the risk within the state of Florida, triggering enormous costs at the moment when Floridians may be least able to pay. Says former Governor Bush, "When the government assumes the risk of these catastrophic events, they are putting at risk the livelihoods and quality of life of the taxpayers and citizens they serve."

"That's a storm warning Mr. Crist would do well to heed."
