Washington — Gov. Charlie Crist (R., Fla.) is on Capitol Hill today, railing against the Obama administration’s space policy. He tells National Review Online that he’s also keeping a close eye on the health-care debate.
Crist says if Obamacare passes, it would be “devastating” for Florida. “I’m concerned about them trying to ram this through.”
Does his position on the bill differ from Marco Rubio, his GOP Senate primary opponent? No, he says. “I don’t think there are any differences.”
Though he did not attend the tea-party rallies on the Hill this morning, Crist says such efforts should be “celebrated.” And if the health-care bill passes, he says he will “certainly” work to repeal it, even at rallies.
Crist adds that this D.C. trip is policy-focused, and that he does not plan to do any fundraising for his campaign.
