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.
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.
Punish those who would have coverage but now will not.

Punish those who want insurance but can't afford it.

punish individual buyers & small businesses that would save money with the exchanges.

All for political purpose.

When will you right whiners ever put your country ahead of your pathetic politics.

Denying your constituents health care for political purposes is about as pathetic as you can get.

You get about as much respect as g.h.b when he flew over louisiana. Your a coward! I'm willing to bet you play this roll on topix , but in public you kiss the asses of blackmen. I can't speak for your state & how far it has come from slavery, but in New Jersey thoughts like your will surely get your head knocked off. Whats done in the dark shall be revealed by the light. Stay on the computer. I'd hate to hear some young black dude brought you back to the future Mcfly!

There's no substantial difference between what I wrote and what you now write. Your Copy-n-Paste carries no weight here. Hit me with 500 more paragraphs but nothing changes. Throwing poop is not serious argument. You seem to be trying to emulate the Jerk-In-Chief.

Why should Obama budge on his demands?

How can we expect Congress to break the 20 percent approval rating when we demand strategies and results which only come when the GOP has the Presidency, House and Senate – while we only control the House?

Unlike most media narratives we all know the GOP is willing to compromise. Whether it was Sen. Snowe’s vote to allow Obamacare out of committee or the House voting to extend unemployment benefits, there is always the ability to deal.

Yet Democrats refuse to budget. As mad as we may get, given the current circumstances, why should they?

There are a number of reasons of GOP in-fighting. Here are a few anecdotal examples:

We expend two to three times as much energy fighting each other and trying to redefine ourselves at critical moments in our nation’s history.
While Pelosi reigns absolute for Democrats, Boehner is questioned by grass roots and a significant state of weakness – after retaining a 30 seat margin of victory.
Any sort of strategy deemed as not sexy enough to energize the base into a frenzy is blasted as weak.

The last example is perfect, I think, of something we should contemplate.

blame the Tea Party. who wants to bargain with a group when "sexy enough to energize the base into a frenzy" is the ongoing plan of the day.

From the "things we can say about white people cuz we have a black president" file...

“I got a new movie coming out ‘Django Unchained’. And in the movie I got to wear chains. But don’t be worried about it because in the movie I get out of the chains. I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the room. How great is that?”

In Talks, G.O.P. May Have to Just Say Yes

Some have likened today’s negotiations to a game of chicken, in which the loser is whichever of two cars on a head-on collision course swerves first. But that metaphor isn’t instructive without some additional texture: if Republicans are driving a Chevy Spark, the president is driving a Mack truck.
