Rick Scott, who has been a vocal opponent of Obamacare since it began working its nefarious way through Congress last year, beat the Republican establishment candidate for Florida’s governorship:
With most precincts counted, Scott looked to be overcoming the might of the Republican establishment … The Associated Press and New York Times called the race for Scott just before 11 p.m.
The media and the Democrats (but I repeat myself) will no doubt make much of Scott’s former association with HCA, and insinuate that he was responsible for some isolated skulduggery with which he was never actually involved.
But Scott’s real sin, in their eyes, is his opposition to Obamacare. He is the head of an anti-Obamacare organization called Conservatives for Patient Rights, and has been roundly vilified in the media for that heresy.
In reality,of course, is that his opposition to the Democrat health care boondoggle is an asset in the eyes of the voters.
