Election time coming to Florida?

Sure he is now spending!

We are finely getting wise to the Tea Party.

Scott is a Tea Party member!

Our governor is now opening up our pocketbooks and putting his greedy hand in to pull out billions of tax dollars to try to cover his past indiscretion against our state!

Must be election time once again?

Rick Scott’s main credential was his vast wealth, much of which he accumulated running Hospital Corporation of America.

He spent over 70 million of it to buy the election!

Were did he get so much money?

During Scott’s tenure, HCA was caught systematically defrauding federal health programs of millions of dollars through elaborate schemes to overbill the government for various services, including care it never provided.

In 2000, the company pleaded guilty to 14 federal felony charges and paid $1.7 billion in fines in what was the largest government fraud settlement in history.

A few months after the federal investigation was announced, Scott was forced to resign, but not before snagging a $310 million golden parachute.

What’s It Like to Wake Up From a Tea Party Binge? Just Ask Florida!

Kids locked up in nursing homes. Leaky sewers. Mosquitoes unleashed. The Sunshine State has buyer’s remorse.

To get Medicaid in Florida, you have to make less than $3,200 a year—and the state seems set to reject Obamacare subsidies that would fix that.

When Scott ran for governor as a political neophyte in 2010,

Obamacare is a particular target of tea party wrath in Florida, but it’s hardly the only one in a state where the movement’s ideology has permeated every layer of government.

In just one year, Scott and his conservative allies slashed state spending by $4 billion even as they cut corporate taxes.

They’ve rejected billions in federal funds in one of the states hardest hit by the recession.

They’ve axed everything from health care and public transportation initiatives to mosquito control and water supply programs.

“Florida is where the rhetoric becomes the reality.

It’s kind of the tea party on steroids,

” says state Rep. Mark Pafford, a Democrat.

“We’ve lost all navigation in terms of finding that middle ground.”
