“I ran on a campaign of getting our state back to work. [The ACA] will be the biggest job-killer ever," -Idiot Rick Scott, Fox and Friends, March 26, 2012
Slick Rick said that last year. That claim was false then (Politifact and Factcheck.org), and now its tangibly false through shear hypocrisy.
Rick Scott was on hand last week to taught HealthPlan Services announcement that they will be adding 1,000 new jobs over 5 years to its Tampa headquarters to help small companies and individuals purchase and manage health insurance.
And all thanks to Obamacare.
HealthPlan CEO Jeffrey Bak said that his firm would "probably not" be expanding if it wasn't for the Affordable Care Act.
Meanwhile, Rick Scott's administration continues to obstruct the Affordable Care Act, going so far as banning federal workers charged with helping the uninsured get health care from Florida government buildings... not to mention refusing to allow the insurance commissioner to negotiate lower rates with companies or refuse rates that are too high with the SOLE PURPOSE of trying to jack up rates so people will blame Obama.
This is just the latest from our governor folks. Worst. Ever.
Your move, Wisconsin.
