Scott Back to Bad-Mouthing Health Law

Gov. Rick Scott, once one of the nation’s most vociferous opponents of the Affordable Care Act,  captured national headlines in February when he changed his tune; he urged the Florida Legislature to use the law’s Medicaid expansion funds to cover the uninsured. That didn’t happen.
Now he appears to have changed his position -- or at least his message -- again, the Associated Press reports. On radio in Pensacola, he called the law a “disaster.” 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
