• With: Charlie Crist

    As a result of my no vote, it died on a tie vote. So, I've always been pro-life personally. But in terms of wanting to change the law, what I said in 2006 was, "I'd rather change hearts than laws." And that's still how I feel.

    O'REILLY: All right. ObamaCare is kind of going down the drain in public opinion. Are you still behind it.

    CRIST: I am. Yes, sir, I am. I think it's the right thing to do to have healthcare for our people.

    O'REILLY: But why is the public turning against it.

    CRIST: Well, I think it had problems, obviously coming out of the gate with the -- you know, how it's done on the Web and things like that and that's probably frustrating. I'm sure that it is.

    But that doesn't mean that the idea is a bad notion. I mean, having healthcare for people that can't afford it and making it affordable for them to have health insurance, I think, is the right thing to do.

    O'REILLY: All right. But they're screwing it up in Washington. So, I don't know that -- Scott is going to hammer you with that. He's going to hit you with that.

    CRIST: I'm sure he will.

    O'REILLY: It'd be interesting to see how the Floridians react to it. I'll give you the last word on it.

    CRIST: Well, that's what he's really talked about. I mean, Rick Scott's career has been built on healthcare. And he has the company.


    Ethics will be an issue in his campaign, where his company was fined the largest fine --


    -- for fraud in the history of the United States of America.

    O'REILLY: You're going to hit him with that, huh.

    CRIST: Absolutely. It's relevant.


    O'REILLY: It's going to be an interesting campaign.

    CRIST: Integrity matters, yes, sure.

    O'REILLY: All right. The book is "The Party is Over." Governor Crist, thanks for coming in. Good to see you. Thank you.

    CRIST: Bill, thank you, my pleasure.
