Crist Reaffirms Support for Obamacare

Former Republican Charlie Crist, now gunning for his old gubernatorial job as a Democrat, is reaffirming his support for the Affordable Care Act, the Naples Daily News reports. At a campaign stop Monday in Naples, Crist cited a PolitiFact ruling of “mostly false” on Gov. Rick Scott’s claim that 300,000 people lost health coverage because of the federal health law; Crist dialed it up a notch, calling Scott’s claim  “liar, liar pants on fire.”  The Scott campaign has been running television ads that are critical of Crist’s support of Obamacare.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
