I wouldn't call saving Florida's taxpayers $1.9 billion that would be required to implement a massive entitlement expansion under Obamacare is punishing them.<quoted text>
Only would a Republican punish their constituents for political purpose.
Florida already has health care safety net programs for those with the greatest need, including assistance for families with incomes up to 133% of the poverty line, and Florida KidCare to ensure no child goes without health care in Florida.
Things taxpayers don't mind paying for. Wonder why other states didn't follow Florida's example.
