If he campaigned on being opposed to the program which generated those billions, then yes I would expect him to turn down the money.
It's just like all the hypocrits who campaigned against earmarks and then turn around and request those same earmarks once the election is over.
Refusing to give send money to DC is easy.
Refusing to accept money from DC is the true test of your principles.
This is like Barack Obama and his tax increase fetish. Even Democrat economists are saying the rich do not have enough money to tax to pay for the ever growing federal debt.
.
Obama made his point and now he's over playing his hand. The Republicans passed a tax increase, Obamacare has tax increases in it, it's time for him to start dealing with real spending cuts or start increasing taxes on the middle class.
.
Scott was being practical in face of a Supreme Court loss. Obama should learn a lesson from Scott but he won't.

I am sure you'd admire your Governor as he/she stands on principals while billions are taken from your state and sent off to Arkansas or Vermont.

Scott did the practical thing.
If that's what they campaigned on, yes.

No, are you cross dressing as a conservative again?
I always have been and always will be a conservative, unlike Gov Scott who is only a "conservative" when it's convenient for him.

So Obama should just throw out any principles he may have for political expediency?

Whether you agree with those principles or not, Obama DID campaign on raising taxes on the rich. It's not like it was a big secret he was keeping from everyone.

Barack Obama has been quite a principal break dancer, changing positions as it so suits him. His term for it is called "evolving.
.
Maybe Scott observed and learned from the master himself.
.
Scott did fight Obamacare and lost in the Supreme Court. Now he should try to keep as much Florida money in Florida as possible to benefit the people of Florida. The only reason a good "Conservative" like you wants Scott to stick to his original position is to allow Crist to use it against him.
.
Obama should learn a lesson from Scott, when Scott couldn't have his way, he adapted. When Obama can't have his way on more taxes, he is now trying to punish Americans.

"but Obama did it......"
"but the Democrats did it......"
"but Crist did it......"

Doesn't sound like someone with principles to me.

Sounds more like someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to get reelected.

You have continually dodged the issue of keeping Florida money in Florida, a responsibility of any Governor.
.
Since you wish to avoid that issue, maybe you can explain why Democrats like you crossdress as Conservatives.

It's not "Florida money". Federal taxes paid don't go into 50 different little funds.

Using your logic, only tax dollars paid by the residents of New York & New Jersey should have been used to pay their most recent disaster relief. Or the billions in "disaster relief" which goes to Florida after every little hurricane.

So when do Michigan & Wisconsin & Minnesota & Iowa and other midwestern states get our billions?

Once it's paid to the federal govt, it's no longer "Florida money".

Btw, I'm not a Democrat; I'm an independent. I only vote for the Dems for 2 reasons- equal rights & SCOTUS appointments. Otherwise I'd likely vote for the GOP because I do better under their tax policies. But some things are more important than money.

Noooooooo.... it is not ever "our" money. It is that type of thinking that has caused the current mess.
.
Barack Obama needs to remember he is not spending his money, nor is he creating debt for himself.
.
Debt you will be paying off when the Chinese come to take your house away from you :) while Obama collects a fortune in speaking fees after he leaves office.

Thanks to liberals:
The Supreme Court says, You don't own it
Obama says, You didn't build it
Eric Holder says, We can drone it

This is mainstream news cupcake. Maybe if you read something other than the Obama/Biden 2012 website, you'd know that.

Hate to break your heart, these stories were found in the N.Y. Times, the well known Obama praise singer.
.
If Fox or the assembled Obama praise singers publish the same story, which organization is wrong?
