Florida Governor Rick Scott tells Greta Van Susteran that Florida will NOT participate in Obamacare.
“Florida is not going to implement Obamacare. We are not going to expand Medicaid and we’re not going to implement exchanges.”, says Governor Scott.
Governor Scott now joins many other Republican Governors in rejecting the Mandate/Tax that IS Obamacare. I’m still trying to find a tally of the number of states that say they will refuse to comply.
Update: Florida Governor Rick Scott releases a statement regarding his decision to ignore Obamacare.
“After reviewing the impact of the Supreme Court ruling that gave Florida the flexibility to legally opt out of implementing one of the costliest provisions of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “ObamaCare,” Governor Rick Scott has decided two major provisions in the law are inconsistent with his mission to grow jobs for Floridians, make sure there is adequate funding for education, and to keep the cost of living as low as possible.”
