Florida Tax Watch, a nonprofit critical of government spending, today released its list of recommendations of programs and spending it believes Gov. Rick Scott should veto in the state’s $70 billion budget.
In a joint news conference with leaders from Canada and Mexico, President Obama told reporters he is “confident” the U.S. Supreme Court will not strike down the health care reform law, a move he said would be “an unprecedented [and] extraordinary step.”
“False.” That’s how PoliFact ruled today when it examined Gov. Rick Scott’s assertion that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 is a “job killer.”
One of the most contentious parts of the 2010 health care reform law — a requirement that states expand their Medicaid programs — is supported by a strong majority of Americans, according to a recent poll.
The U.S. Supreme Court will cast its votes on the Florida-led challenge to the health care reform law today, but an announcement on those votes will not come till much later.
Florida counties are asking Gov. Rick Scott to veto a bill currently awaiting his signature that would shift costs from the state’s Medicaid program to local governments throughout Florida.
