Florida’s Governor Rick Scott has been one loudest critics of President Obama’s ‘Obamacare’ healthcare law, and has vowed to do everything in his power to prevent the ominous job-killing law from being implemented in the state of Florida.
But while his pushback on Obamacare has garnered significant Republican and Independent voter support, Democrats have labeled him and others opposed to the law as “extremists” who are out of touch with mainstream America.
Now that President Obama has won re-election, Governor Scott has opened up dialogue with the Obama Administration on a possible compromise on the healthcare law, leaving conservative groups and activists extremely disappointed in Scott’s possible change in position on Obamacare. Scott sent a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius asking her for a meeting to discuss what, if anything can be done collaboratively to reduce healthcare costs for Floridians.
