Conservative voice blasts insurance reforms

Dick Armey, the staunch conservative and former U.S. House Majority Leader who is now chaIrman of Freedomworks, has written a letter to Gov. Charlie Crist criticizing some of the legislative proposals under consideration in Florida. Freedomworks motto is "Lower taxes, less government, more freedom," a phrase that Crist himself used repeatedly on the campaign trail.

Armey took aim directly at placing limits on Florida property insurance subsidiaries, a Crist campaign promise, and said they don't "make economic sense."  He asked Crist to veto any legislation that included these restrictions, which he said would result in more insurance companies leaving the state. "The state of Florida needs responsible direction during this special session and as the governor we look to you to provide that direction,'' wrote Armey. To read the entire letter click here.
