Florida AG Bondi Takes Aim At Obama During GOP Convention

August 30, 2012

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, sharing the stage with Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens at the Republican National Convention in 2012, lambasted President Barack Obama for the health-care overhaul he signed into law in 2010.

Bondi, who was at the forefront of the legal challenge to Obamacare after her predecessor filed the first lawsuit against the measure in federal court in Pensacola, scolded Obama for a provision requiring that almost every American purchase health insurance. Most of the law, including the mandate, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“This is what happens when a president has such total disregard for our individual liberty that he knowingly and purposely imposes unwarranted restrictions against the will of the people,” Bondi said. “This is not why our Founding Fathers risked their lives and their fortunes when they created a nation.”

Bondi has emerged as a key female surrogate for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, pushing back on the Democrats’ line that Republicans are waging a “war on women,” though her remarks Wednesday did not address that issue.

    It’s pretty sad as AG that she doesn’t understand how a Bill becomes a Law. She suggest President Obama is acting as some kind of dictator, when he isn’t and hasn’t come close to being the ideal to Pam Bondi’s paranoid delusions.

    The ACA went through the House and the Senate before it was signed into law. It doesn’t force anyone to do anything and doesn’t take away any of their choices in their health care.

    Being that Bondu has her health care Insurance provided to her by the people of Florida, she is not saying anything and is just playing partisan spin the lies. It is a sorry was for her to exploit her office.
