Whatever that black man in the White House is for, Governor Scott is against. It's pure and simple. He's a stupid Tea Party pawn. He isn't the least bit concerned about the welfare of the citizens of our State. All he wants to do is show that black man in the White House that he's the King of Florida and that black man can't tell him what to do. How truly, truly sad - and wrong. The citizens of our great state will suffer because of him.

Understandable is States concerns. Yes the feds will pay for a short term, then the fed portion shrinks and the states pay more for the expanded medicaid rolls. Now how will the states pay ? With tax increases on Everybody in that state. The WH gangsta keeps his hands clean cause it's a state tax hike not federal, but for a federal program. Bams is gonna get you with all his healthcare taxes and force states to raise em too.

Scott has been told by rugby handlers to tone down speaking about the improvement in jobs/economy in FL. It doesn't goose-step in time with their rhetoric.
