A candidate for Senate in Florida, former Miami mayor Maurice Ferre, talks about the health-care legislation before Congress:
Of course I am for healthcare reform, but this is not the right plan for the working families of Florida.
This plan was arrived at with unacceptable compromises. It is a special interest plan that raises taxes and favors insurance and pharmaceutical companies. I fear the President has lost sight of his original goal of extending healthcare to all Americans and at the same time controlling healthcare costs.
Big deal, right?
Except that Ferre is running as a Democrat. He’s not expected to beat the frontrunner, Rep. Kendrick Meek, but it’s pretty interesting to see Democrats now running against the legislation.
