Florida Governor Rick Scott: We will Not Implement Obamacare

Florida Governor Rick Scott tells Greta Van Susteran that Florida will NOT participate in Obamacare.

“Florida is not going to implement Obamacare. We are not going to expand Medicaid and we’re not going to implement exchanges.”, says Governor Scott.

Governor Scott now joins many other Republican Governors in rejecting the Mandate/Tax that IS Obamacare. I’m still trying to find a tally of the number of states that say they will refuse to comply.


Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal refuses to implement Obamacare despite Supreme Court ruling

Yahoo news

he Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama's health care law on Thursday, but Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a possible Republican vice presidential contender who has refused to establish a federally mandated health care exchange in his state, said Friday that he will continue to ignore it.

"We're not going to start implementing Obamacare," Jindal said during a conference call with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. "We're committed to working to elect Gov. Romney to repeal Obamacare."

Under the Affordable Care Act, states must set up a health insurance exchange program by Jan. 1, 2014, and will receive grants from the federal government to implement it. Several Republican governors, including both Jindal and McDonnell, have put off setting up the exchanges in the hope that the law would be repealed or struck down by the court. Now that the law has been upheld, Jindal said he won't change course and is looking to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to lead the repeal effort if he takes office in 2013.

"Here in Louisiana we have not applied for the grants, we have not accepted many of these dollars, we're not implementing the exchanges," Jindal said. "We don't think it makes any sense to implement Obamacare in Louisiana. We're going to do what we can to fight it."
