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.<quoted text>
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.
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.
