TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida Gov. Rick Scott now says Florida will do nothing to comply with President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and will not expand its Medicaid program. The announcement is a marked changed after the governor recently said he would follow the law if it were upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
"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 Wright stressed that the governor would work to make sure the law is repealed.

Good. The FUBO train is rolling, up yours bambi!
Scott is feeling the political winds, and they are hurrcane force.
I’ll bet Barry’s boy, Holder, is already writing up the lawsuits. By not bending over for ObamaCare, the states are denying the illegal alien invaders their “constitutional right” to American taxpayer subsidized “free” healthcare. I see it coming. The ‘RATS are so predictable.
That makes it two, WI and FL. More to follow.
Lets see what happens now.
I hope Georgia follows. Our Gov. Deal seams likely to do so.
At what point do we say that the federal government does not serve its purpose and move on? The feds are opposed to states defending their borders. The feds are preventing us from achieving energy independence. The feds are bankrupting the country. The feds are engaged in unpopular wars and covert operations. If the federal government were to go away, what would the states lose? A space program? A global military presence? I think I could live with that.
And so it begins. Saw more of this on Hot Air today. Seems many governors are refusing to implement. God bless them. They really don’t have much choice but to defy the feds or go belly up in red ink.
I believe LA Governor: Bobby Jindal did the same thing yesterday....no odongocare in Louisiana.
Three, Jindal in LA.
Louisiana, Bobby Jindal. No way is he going to agree to this monstrosity.
does this also mean he will protect Florida citizens from paying the additional 6.2% federal tax?
What exactly would be the aftermath of this? Could the governor be imprisoned?
Waiting for Gov. Perry to make the same decision. Texas can stand a long time without the federal government.
Now all we need is the other 56 states to do this. /s
God bless Governor Scott. I hope he can hold out.
How dare these gov’s thumb their noses at SCOTUS! HOW DARE THEM!!
Only ZERO (FUBO) and his thugs are allowed to do such! *sarc*
I hope our TN Republican Governor follows Florida’s lead but I’m not holding my breath. Too many illegal farm workers to take care of.
LOOK OUT! OBAMA IS BRINGING OUT THE GOONS!!
IRS seeks 4,000 agents, $303 million for Obamacare | WashingtonExaminer.com
NOW THINK ABOUT WHY OBAMA WANTED TO TAKE YOUR GUNS. FAST and FURIOUS REBOUND!
Epic Fail—Last I checked, I had all of my guns.
Hell, I think I’ll buy a couple for each of my sons.
Can’t have too many, y’know.
If Obama remains in office, they are all cheap suits.
