“Surrender” is a bold stand, right? Apparently:
Florida Gov. Rick Scott is dropping his staunch opposition to federal health care reform.
Scott, a vocal critic of “Obamacare,” said Tuesday that he now wants to negotiate with the federal government in a way that could help families.
Scott previously stated that he would not go along with parts of health care reform that the state controls. But the governor said that in the wake of the re-election of President Barack Obama he is now open to discussing it.
Scott was willing to fight ObamaCare only so long as he figured Obama wouldn’t be around very long to fight back.
That’s as apt a definition of “cowardly” as you’re likely to find on a Wednesday morning reading of the news.
