Governor Rick Scott of Florida, after initially turning down the idea of Obamacare in Florida, eventually gave in, raising eyebrows in all conservative communities.
However, instead of the Medicaid expansion to a million new recipients, Florida legislators are calling for some skin-in-the-game and an eventual withdrawal from ALL Medicaid.
"Sen. Joe Negron says he hopes the state can eventually exit from the Medicaid system entirely and called this proposal the beginning of a transformation. Lawmakers also discussed using state funds to help with co-pays.Oh Snap.
Following up on this, Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement praising Florida Senate and House committees that have killed Governor Rick Scott's proposal to expand Medicaid:
"Both these Senate and House committees have saved federal taxpayers some $20 billion from 2014 to 2019, and Florida taxpayers another $1 billion by 2022 by not following Governor Scott's ill-advised proposal to expand Medicaid by 1 million people. This should set the stage for other state legislatures, like Arizona, Michigan, and Ohio, to break ranks with their governors by refusing to implement Obamacare.Indeed.
Long term damage for short term perception of gain.
As I suggested earlier, Michigan lawmakers need to think about letting go of the curious things in the hole, or risk becoming trapped and used.
