If states don't take federal money, be it for education, health care, etc (and the rules and regulations attached to weaken states rights and obligate them to unfunded mandates), or cause them any political heartburn that costs them time and effort to fight, the feds will keep your money and give it to those who will obey their dictates - and tie you up in court (using your money to fight the citizens of your state, who don't have deep pockets like the feds).
Blackmail Federal style.......
If I were Romney’s Super PAC, I’d be making a commercial to blanket Florida with this for the next couple of months.
Yes sir, blanket the state....
Scott did the right thing rejecting the funds for the rail and money to set up the “healthcare exchanges”. Both would have left Florida holding the bag for countless billions in the future. So Feds, I give you my finger! H@ll take two!!
And how does this help Obama win Florida???
Obama must think that $27 million won’t buy him enough votes to seal the deal and carry the state.
Out of sheer petulance. Just like Texas.
5 more weeks. Send this, the worst administration in history, packing.
Seize Federal property in Florida. Auction it off until the money is raised. Problem solved.
This will be sure to earn Obama votes in Florida! / S
Obama’s world of liberal fascism is beginning to unravel as the People begin to discover who Obama really is, a fascist in sheeps clothing.
If you aren’t a DEmocrat you won’t get any HEALTH CARE down the road if Obamacare is allowed to stand!!!!
“Seize Federal property in Florida. Auction it off until the money is raised. Problem solved.”
We are fortunate that all of the clowns in Washington are far too stupid to be the antiChrist.
Same policy FDR used.
How did that work out in 1861?
This was actually stupid of Scott to beg the Feds for money....while bragging about “not taking federal funds”. Duh...of course now Obama and the Feds will stiff you.
And, I guess pandering to all the Black Racists, having George Zimmerman locked up for self-defense, did not help either.
The GOP needs to stop giving the Dems political fodder...and the GOP needs to stop the “Socialist when we feel like it” nonsense
Scott needs to be primaried out in 2014...or the GOP will lose the Governors Mansion
With posters like you who needs Dem political fodder?
“Obama is giving Florida the Texas treatment - the federal finger. “
Part of the enemies list he denies having.
seriously...this could and should be used against obama in Florida...
There is no benefit to be part of the U.S.A. if you don’t vote for Democrats. And this flop of a president wants to lecture Romney on being “president of all the people”....that is, except TX and FL and other states who dare to oppose The First Dictator. Democrats can’t give out disaster aid for TX wildfires and FL hurricanes because they need that money to buy votes in the Red States.
The governors should write a state law giving complete amnesty to all those refusing to obey Obamacare.
