T-Paw on CNN: Repeal ObamaCare

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty has not decided if he'll run for president in 2012, but the Republican says if does enter the race, the repeal of ObamaCare will be a major part of his platform.

He spoke about health care reform and more on CNN's State of the Union this morning.

Here's an excerpt of his remarks:

I think Obamacare is one of the worst pieces of legislation passed in the modern history of the country. I'm doing everything I can in Minnesota to stop, delay or avoid implementation in my state including signing an executive order saying we're not going to participate unless required by law or approved by me. We've been given opportunities to early enroll in that program and other opportunities to participate in other aspects of it and we've declined. And I hope between now and 2014 when it's fully kicked in as many states as possible do what they can to reel that program back or that the new Republican Congress better yet can repeal it because it's dragging stuff into Washington, D.C., creating a new bureaucracy, spending a lot of new money that they don't have isn't going to work. We should have market-based solutions. ...
