Video: Crist says he 'won't shy away from' Obamacare



Charlie Crist appeared on The Ed Show today (in an interview taped Sunday) declaring he would do "just about everything" differently from Gov. Rick Scott. Crist expressed support for Obamacare but said the rollout could be better.

"I won't shy away from it," said Crist, who hasn't been as supportive in the past. "I think it's the right thing to do." He criticized Scott for failing to expand Medicaid.

Crist was asked about taxes. "I don't like to raise taxes," he said, but added that he had in the past and "if necessary" would do so again.n He called Scott "fabulously wealthy," and feared the money the governor could put into the race.
