Florida Gov. Rick Scott endorsed the Medicaid expansion in President Obama's healthcare law on Wednesday, delivering a political coup to the White House.
Roughly 1 million Floridians will have access to healthcare coverage if the state legislature approves Scott's plan. He said he would only support the expansion for three years, and would back out if the federal government backs away from its funding commitments. "While the federal government is committed to paying 100 percent of the cost of new people in Medicaid, I cannot, in good conscience, deny the uninsured access to care," Scott said at a news conference.Liberal Politics Feminist News Gender
