I asked has he done anything as governor that is improper. We know the past. Can't do anything about it. Perhaps if the Dems ran a better candidate Scott would have lost. He had the baggage and still won. You make your elected officials gods. You make excuses for them. Its a 24 hour job. while most Americans tried to survive they didn't study how to get over the system and skate with all of the laws enacted. But times got tough and others started asking questions and wanting to join in. You don't like that. So they have two choices. Back up politicians who try to get the budget under control and they seem not to or become part of system. either way its a wake up call for you. We're here, we're near, and we ain't going away. Its our turn to get paid. p.s....The original tea party mantra was end the wars, lower taxes, and bring freedom back. The tea party was taken over by the elitists who control the Repub party with the blessing of the elitists who control the Dem party.

So now convicted embezzlers are qualified to be public servants?

Has Florida did away with back ground checks on account of Rick Scott's stellar rehabilitation with sticky fingers or, was Scott simply to Big to Jail?

It's not the folks in Florida "Can't do anything about it" but rather you guys chose to reward a Corrupt thief and engineer of one of the biggest medicare scams in the history of Capitalism in America in an industry that is unregulated and consumes 1/16th of the American GDP.

A thief of Public Funds was rewarded with the position of Chief Executive Office of a well populated State.

It's not you can't do anything, you consciously choose to reward a corrupt thief.

"while most Americans tried to survive they didn't study how to get over the system and skate with all of the laws enacted".

Rick Scott did and you make excuses for him.

"Scott who beat Alex Sink in the Florida Governor’s race, admitted to 14 counts of Medicare fraud and paid the federal government more than $600 million dollars in fines for his fraudulent billing practices".

"He also left owning 10 million shares of stock worth over $350 million, mostly from his initial investment In 1999, Columbia/HCA changed its name back to HCA, Inc.”

Now that he's ripped off the taxpayer and HCA and a multi millionaire, "He's a good boy".

"Its our turn to get paid".

The corporate loving republicans have been.

Since Reagan.

You guys make more excuses then carter has liver pills. i don't care about Repubs getting paid. I care about me. That is the mantra of the progressives. You better deal with it. There are many people who can collect who are not right now. Plus the boomers are retiring. If Scott did that, go get him. Go ahead. Its the corporate Repubs who told the people living in cities to leave them as thier taxes tripled and quadripled while their neighborhoods changed into savage landscapes. The victims never shown on television because of a biased media. No blame for you. These personal experiences makes an impression on people. Its hard to forget violent encounters. They were all good boys. I swear it.

Seems you're the one make excuses.

Teabaggers are always whining about we've got to cut welfare and medicaid to the poor because they "abuse" it but when a teabagger steals the money through outright theft.

They make excuses and elect them.

"Its the corporate Repubs who told the people living in cities to leave them as thier taxes tripled and quadripled while their neighborhoods changed into savage landscapes".

Yes they did all while ignoring the fact that Rick stole TAX MONEY.

But cry bloody murder when someone poor is receiving benefits of 1/10th of 1% of what Scott fraudulently obtained.

Poor teabagger.
