Posted on 03/20/2014 9:16:08 AM PDT by Impala64ssa
With President Barack Obama heading to the Sunshine State on Thursday, he is drawing fire from an old foe in Gov. Rick Scott.
Rising to political prominence by opposing Obamas federal health-care law, Scott went after Obama for taking funds from Medicaid Advantage to fund the law.
"Today, President Obama is coming to Florida to raise money and do a campaign-style event, Scott said. No one knows specifically what hes going to talk about, but its safe to say he wont be addressing the 1.3 million Florida seniors who are in danger of losing their health care benefits, doctors and hospitals as Medicare Advantage plans are being raided to fund Obamacare. The president probably wont tell the story of Floridians losing access to cancer centers. The president probably wont bring on stage seniors whose co-pays and premiums have increased. Day-by-day, real Florida families are being affected by the presidents policies and his administration has continued to change the rules and stick their heads in the sand. Thats not acceptable to families who are being impacted, and thats why in the coming months Im going to meet with families to hear their stories on what they had, and what theyve lost. Hopefully, this administration will get the message that raiding Medicare Advantage is harming our seniors and change course. Stay tuned.
Lovin’ Rick Scott!
Thanks. Nice to know someone is speaking out. The Miami media is too busy drooling over the Clown’s visit.
Talk is cheap. What is he going to do about it. From the article: "thats why in the coming months Im going to meet with families to hear their stories on what they had, and what theyve lost." So, he's going to go on a Hillary-style listening tour. BFD.
Talk is cheap.
We in FL have a law against DRs asking about guns.
He’s cleaning up the voter rolls.
Drug testing for welfare recipients.
You prefer alex sink as gov?
OH and Mr. Scott eliminated the ethanol mandate.
Somebody should tell the Pimp-in-Chief that the whores grow weary of payment in lies.
Governor Scott should welcome Zero to Florida with an arrest warrant for being an undocumented alien.
He’d win re-election in a walk.
No, in fact, I don't know much about your governor. The things you listed are fantastic. I was merely commenting on his announcement of what he was going to do in response to Obamacare - listen to people bitch and moan.
Wish I'd thought of your analogy.
LOL - one of the things the sunk Sink...
