The federal health care law gives the states some options, and Florida is opting out.

Watching the local Obama butt kissers on Florida tv is funny...they seem to know this is a chance to make Rick Scott seem like a bad guy, but they are also unable so far to avoid mentioning that Obamugabe's "win" at the Supreme Court also permits states to tel the Federal government to SHOVE IT.

The only good thing about the SCOTUS ruling was the overturning of the Medicaid mandate on the states. This will allow a de facto gutting of much of the program, and it also curtails the use of greenmail by the feds.

Many states are already groaning under their federally-mandated Medicaid obligations. As financially pressed as the states are, I could see where only a couple of small and hyper-liberal states such as Vermont or Hawaii would chose to take that path.

They know that anything that they start ranting on in Florida regarding the elected officials may very well backfire in this critical state.
They must have bite marks on their own tongues...
