Meanwhile in Florida

Please read Stephanie Mincimer in Mother Jones on the shit show that is Florida’s Medicaid system, and what Gov. Rick Scott is doing to keep it that way: “Today, a single parent with two children can’t qualify for Medicaid in Florida if she makes more than $3,200 a year—one of the nation’s lowest eligibility levels. Obamacare provides funding to raise that ceiling to $25,390 for a family of three.”

BUT Scott is rejecting the Medicaid expansion and Obamacare funds because: “‘We don’t need to expand a big-government program to provide for everyone’s needs,’ he said. ‘What we need is to shrink the cost of health care and expand opportunities for people to get a job so more people can afford it.'” asldfjaksldjfklasjdflasjdfkl. And here are 12 other governors who think just like him. AMERICA.
