    Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott says he will not implement the state health insurance exchanges mandated in the 2010 federal health care law despite President Barack Obama's re-election.

    The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports:


    Speaking on the New College of Florida campus following a meeting of the state's university governing board, Scott said it will cost taxpayers and business owners too much to expand Medicaid and set up health insurance exchanges as called for under the law.

    "No one has been able to show me that that health care exchange is going to do anything rather than raise taxes, raise the cost of our companies to do business," Scott said, adding that expanding Medicaid would also require tax increases.
    Scott is one of many Republican governors who have resisted the state programs required by the law before Election Day, but he's the first to voice continued resistance after the election.....snip~

    Looks like 28 other Republican Governors need to step up and do what they said too.
    In Florida, there was a proposed constitutional amendment that would prohibit mandates to purchase private health insurance.

    It seems that it hasn't passed.

    And my local Florida paper today actually had an article about how Gov. Scott is backing off on his criticism for Obamacare.

    So I don't see why governors - Republican or otherwise - would be against something that the people of their state seem to be supporting.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Slavery was once the law. I guess they should hae accepted it and moved on.

    my own state is also on track to throw a tantrum and to refuse to set up the exchange. result : the fedgov will set it up for us. a pointless exercise in impotent rage, but whatever gets you through the night, I guess.

    Republicans that support liberal policy are indeed strange.
