On Monday, January 27, 2014, Attorney General Pam Bondi will be attending a fund raiser, in her honor, at the Marsh Creek Country Club, St. Augustine, Florida. This information was mailed to the Republican Executive Committee members and others in the Republican Party. There was a reminder on the flier, that the maximum donation is $3000 per individual.
The Town Criers are looking forward to greeting the Attorney General. They were on St. George Street, on Friday, January 24th, with signs that read, GOP Still Asleep and Bondi Should Resign. It was an effort to stoke up some opposition to the Republican complicity in pushing the implementation of Obama Care in Florida.
“Imagine that!" said Dave Heimbold, SATP Media Chairman. "The Queen of the Legal Department of Florida is visiting Marsh Creek Country Club, in a gated community to celebrate, among other things, a political donation of $25,000 from Florida Blue. What is she going to say to the 300,000 Floridians who lost their health insurance? Eat cake?"
The Town Criers were providing their weekly message in the frigid weather
over the weekend. Obviously, their displeasure is not limited to Obama.
"To tell you the truth,” said Mr. Heimbold, “the Republican Party is not doing their job. The GOP is as guilty as Obama because they do nothing to resist his ‘Soviet style’ takeover of a sixth of our economy."
There are now eleven States who are appealing Obama's over-reach in giving extensions and modifying the Affordable Care Act at will. Attorney Generals in West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia wrote Sebelius a letter last week expressing concern that HHS has proposed a rule which “both compounds illegal executive action and fails to protect the privacy of consumers using the health insurance exchanges.”
But Attorney General Bondi has not jumped on board in this combined effort.
Now, we ask you: Shouldn't Attorney General Bondi have resisted the take-over of the health care system in Florida instead of joining CEO Patrick Geraghty, of Florida Blue, in his attempt to 'transition' 300,000 by 'direct enrollment' into Obama-care?
Bondi has the duty and authority to join other State's Attorney Generals in pushing-back Federal intrusions into State business. It is written in plain language in Florida Statute 16.52. Bondi is not an employee of Florida Blue. Or is the $25,000 donation just hush money? “Our question is: Did the donation by Florida Blue have any influence on her decision not to join the other eleven State AGs to resist the long reach of Obama's Bureaucrats into Florida's affairs?”, said a Tea Party spokesman yesterday.
“We suggest that Bondi return the money to Florida Blue and tell Obama's agent, CEO Geraghty, to shove it,” Heimbold concluded.
The Marsh Creek meeting could be Attorney General Pam Bondi's Rubicon.
If she continues to go along with the Soviet style Obama Care implementation
through Florida Blue and keeps the $25,000, she surrenders Florida into the hands of Obama. If she returns the $25,000 and resists the take-over of health care by joining the eleven other States, she wins the hearts and emotions of the Floridian victims of Obama Care, and wins her re-election. Just as important, for her personally, Pam Bondi saves her reputation.
