He favored exchanges and was 'open to' mandates. Then he ran for president.

Does it really matter what Pawlenty says anymore, or what he claims to stand for? He is pandering to the far right and he can't out-far-right Bachmann. This hopeless campaign can't end soon enough.

Companies and individuals are going broke because of health care costs. Health care costs are the #1 issue in most business polls. 49% of all foreclosures are due to the cost of health care. Insurance companies have had decades to correct the problem and haven't. If you are against universal health care you are anti-business and anti-middle class.

What a pathetic excuse of an ex-governor.

say it with me -- "FLip" "Flop". T.P. proves once again he'll say just about anything if he thinks it will help him get elected. Was he lying then or is he lying now? IF lack of conviction and clarity of priorities doesn't "prove" his lack of high caliber leadership skills, what will?

Daily he is flip-flopping on some issue or another. It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

Just cause the guy is in the wheelchair doesn't mean that I should have to pay for his healthcare. Since ADA, he's able to get a job just like the rest of us. NO MORE SPENDING! TP should do the right thing and everyone can pay for their OWN insurance - taxes are NOT for charity!

I'm a conservative Republican, emphasize constitutional, I knew TPaw was DOA months ago. How come his "professional" staffers did not? Say goodnight Tim.

We in MN have known him as a baseless shill pandering to the party = a worthless governor. Maybe he could slither into a presidential campaign with slick talk, a baloney book, and a pack of lies, and not be found-out. Relief!! The more he's out there, the lower his image and standings. Goodbye Tim, don't let the door hit you in the rear on your way out.
