Crist, Scott Hit on Health In Final Debate

Oct 22, 2014

In their final debate before the upcoming election for governor, challenger Charlie Crist focused in on Gov. Rick Scott’s refusal to back Medicaid expansion, the News Service of Florida reports. He said the refusal caused Florida to miss out on thousands of jobs. Crist also made reference to Scott’s stint as CEO of  hospital chain Columbia/HCA, previously rocked by a Medicare fraud scandal. As the News Service reports, Crist said Scott achieved his fortune in an “unsavory” way.
