After resisting the Medicaid expansion and banning county health officials from helping people choose a health plan under Obamacare, Gov. Rick Scott called out the Florida National Guard and ordered them to “shoot to kill anyone attempting to help someone enroll in Obamacare.”
Gov. Scott said that he recognizes the plan might be controversial, he believes the 10th Amendment (States’ Rights) allow him the authority to do so. “And if not, what’s the worst that can happen? I’m tried before a Florida jury? Please!”
“Florida has 3.8 million uninsured people,” Scott continued, “and if we don’t stop them from getting health care, they might start living longer and probably give Obama and the Democrats the credit for it. Florida can’t afford to have millions more Democrats. That’s not what the Koch brothers have been paying us for.”
Sen. Marco Rubio issued a statement praising Gov. Scott’s move: “I’m proud to see my state leading the way on this critical issue. With Obamacare enrollment starting on October 1st and the federal government still showing no signs of stopping it, it’s incumbent on individual states to step up resistance.”
The Florida legislature also held an emergency session to expand Stand Your Ground to allow private citizens to shoot anyone they fear may be an Obamacare recipient. The bill is expected to pass both chambers later in the week, and be on the governor’s desk by Sunday.
