Crist appeared at the Capital Tiger Bay Club and almost immediately brought up the attack ads being run by the political committee backing Scott's re-election, which show video of Crist talking about the health care overhaul and saying, "I think it's been great."That's pretty smart in a state where about 1 million people are denied health care, where they are dying prematurely because of Republican politics. Out of spite.
"I'm going to tell you what's great. 'Obamacare's' great," Crist said one minute into his 29-minute speech. "My opponent has spent about $6 million showing me say what's great ... Affordable health care—I think it's incredibly important and I don't back away from it, I do support it because it is great."
Yes, for the people who now, finally, have health insurance they can afford and that can't be taken away from them, Obamacare is great. That's a message no Democrat should be afraid to deliver.
