    Yeah, a real stand up guy.

    The same plan that cost more money than it saved from kicking people off the rolls, yes. That plan.

    Wow, no kidding!
    My brother lives in FL and I get an earful from him a couple of times a week about Scott.
    Scott has made few friends since getting in, and has not done anywhere near what he promised for job creation.
    I seem to recall that his chief of staff resigned several months ago for backdoor deals with political friends on some contracts, I think.

    Personally, I'd rather we start drug testing our politicians rather than our welfare recipients.

    How's about both? sounds fair to me.

    Hardly anyone ends up testing positive. The tests cost more than you save. So why bother?

    Dude was a massive crook before he got elected. I was absolutely shocked he was even got on the ballot much less won.


    Florida voters gave gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott the nod of approval in the November 2, 2010 elections. However, Scott who beat Alex Sink in the Florida Governor’s race, admitted to 14 counts of Medicare fraud and paid the federal government more than $600 million dollars in fines for his fraudulent billing practices.

    Oh yea, I have heard that earful from my brother on numerous occasions.

    Scott seems to have been a complete failure on every campaign front that he had.

    I guess that he spent some of his own fortune when running, and basically bought the election.

    Brother really hates his guts, and he is generally reserved about everything else (except Scott).

    You know, he really is a great guy. He sure gets fired up about Scott, though.

    He does a lot of fishing, so he is also very in tune environmentally, which I respect.

    The Florida ecosystem is very important to tourism, lifestyle, and for food.
