Gov. Scott to Continue Blocking ObamaCare in Florida

Will not accept Medicaid expansion or set up health exchanges


Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) maintained that he would continue to reject implementation of key aspects of President Barack Obama's health care reform law this week, despite the certainty that Obamacare will now remain intact due to the president's reelection.

Scott has been a leading adversary of Obamacare, repeatedly refusing to accept provisions that would expand Medicaid rolls and set up a state-run health insurance exchange. He continued to criticize these programs during an appearance at the New College of Florida on Wednesday.
