This is a joke right? The Criminal Governor has cost Floridians over 300,000 jobs! Moving to a state-only Medicaid- like program cost Florida an estimated 135,000 jobs and $5.6 billion in wages next year.

Scott's proposed budget lays off 1,849 Department of Children and Families employees and slices $278 million out of the agency that oversees homelessness and health care; substance abuse, domestic violence and mental health.

20,000 jobs lost by laying off Florida's teachers.

Face it the man is a liar! He took the fifth 75 times!!!! All the while HIS Company wound up paying the largest fine (1.7 billion!) in U.S. history for ripping billions off Medicare!

This cant be real.... The guy that moved here just in a nick of time is criminal trash. This loser bilked teachers out income and then tried to look like a hero giving them a 2500. portion back to look like a hero. Then our Loser school board never gave the money to the teachers. Good Job loser criminal Rick Scott... see u on election day!

Let's not forget the $75 million of his own money he spent to get to Tallahassee. Or the $2 billion (total) spent by his former company, HCA, to settle claims, civil and criminal, having to do with the largest Medicare/Medicaid fraud and billing scam in history. Or the fact that he turned down $2.3 billion of federal money to build a high speed railroad. Charlie's looking better all the time!

I believe Governor Scott has met much of what he campaigned on. He tightened the state's operating budget, found money to invest. He even reversed his thoughts on rail service from Tampa to east of Orlando. He has brought jobs into the state. One thing he tried to do and it must be put through the state congress is an ethics bill and ultimately a grand jury investigation into members of the house and senate in the state. As well as the 67 Florida Counties and the many municipalities. The people have had enough of legislators filling their pockets through friends and businesses in the state. The state congress wants no part of this and that is a good indicator things are worse than imagined. A few have been ferreted out one for trading state funds in the way of a airplane hanger for a job. His Lt. Governor for misspending funds and money laundering in gaming venues.

Scott reversed his thinking as I stated before on the rail system from Tampa to Orlando (Sanford, Fl.). He accepted the funbds available from the federal government to help build that stretch of railroad.
