Rick Scott Says Florida Don't Need No Stinkin' Health Care

No surprise that like Governor Jindal of Louisiana, Rick Scott of Florida is saying "NO!" to Obamacare. Just remember that Governor Voldemort has health care through the state, plus he is a millionaire. He's also the former CEO of a hospital, so he's not anti-health care no matter what lies he tells now. But hey - no sweat off his bald head if he denies healthcare to the masses, right? He gets to decide who is worthy enough, just as he does with voting rights. [/snark]

"Florida is not going to implement Obamacare. We are not going to expand Medicaid and we're not going to implement exchanges," Scott's spokesman Lane Wright told The Associated Press on Saturday. Wright stressed that the governor would work to make sure the law is repealed.

Scott said the state will not expand the Medicaid program in order to lower the number of uninsured residents, nor will Florida set up a state-run health exchange, a marketplace where people who need insurance policies could shop for them.

"We care about having a health care safety net for the vulnerable Floridians, but this is an expansion that just doesn't make any sense," he told Fox host Greta Van Susteren on Friday.

Scott has gone back and forth on the issue after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Congress cannot withhold federal Medicaid funding from states that opt out of a requirement in the overhaul to expand coverage to those just above the poverty line.
