Rick Scott takes credit for 1000 healthcare jobs created by Obamacare…after bashing it!

“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, 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.

Florida's AG, Pam Bondi, Bravely Halts Execution....for Interfering with Fundraiser

File this under “This can only happen in Rick Scott’s Florida”. Bondi is known for being a bobblehead immersed in scandal. Last week she took her shallowness to new heights:

Bondi postponed an execution of a man sentenced to death for the killing of an exotic dancer. No, she did not do this because she has a problem with the death penalty. She crows about the number of deaths under her watch and even supports the state’s idiotic “Timely Justice Act” to kill more quickly.

No, she just thought the lethal injection might put a damper on her party/fundraiser, so she actually had the execution rescheduled.

She did apologize for her lapse in judgment and trivializing a critical duty of the AG. That did little for the family, who had already seen the execution postponed twice.

Regardless of your thoughts on the death penalty, what she did was callous and wrong. It also demonstrates the typical priorities of this regime.
