    "Governor Scott: Florida Will Not Implement Insurance Exchanges or Expand Medicare.

    Florida, the state the led the fight against President Obama's health care law, will not comply with the Supreme Court opinion."


    That's one gutsy move by the FL Governor.

    FL is a swing state. What will the Feds do? Send in the FBI? Have Kathleen S. take over? Imagine the stink that will make. I think this is a good chess move. Time will tell.

    Will other states follow ? Selective secession from the Union of Obamacare.

    Should Obamacare get repealed, FL saves money that would have been spent on Obamacare implementation.

    the beltway needs to be reminded that the power rests with the people, not them.

    The power behind this presidency (Obama, Holder, Axelrod boys) is in over their heads. Many Master level chess players will deal them moves that lay traps everywhere.

    Gov. Scott's popularity is so low that even minor opponents poll well against him. Politically, he's a dead man walking. He'll be remembered with the same level of sentiment as "W".

    I'm surprised Arizona's governor hasn't thrown her gauntlet down yet. Or did I just miss it?

    Not having the exchange just means that instead of having a choice, citizens will default to the government plan. But we'll have dumped Scott before the plan is fully implemented.

    I would like to see people who are called to LEAD, do LEAD at any personal expense including popularity.

    As for popularity, it comes and goes. You know that. If you count on it, you'd be out of pocket sooner or later. But leadership skills never go away.

    As for "dead man walking", they are the most dangerous to the opposition, don't they ?

    Dead man walking has nothing to lose. An incumbent president has everything to lose.

    I support this dead man walking from the Great state of FL.

    The feds can just withhold highway money, Medicaid money, whatever.

    This is going to be interesting.

    Can governors just do that on their own? What if their legislators choose a different path?

    If the federal government gets out of control and tramples on too many peoples' lives, it's time for states to rise up and secede. This is a good sign. I'm sure Texas will follow.

    States, and their citizens, need to stop thinking of the federal government as the source of revenue and more as the source of their problems.

    Actually, didn't Roberts' convoluted opinion say just the opposite?

    Depends upon each state's constitution but in most if not every state, the governor is the executive charged with enforcing the law -- or not, and he can veto any legislative action.

    I for one hope this groundswell grows and it forces another court challenge......maybe even a Constitutional crisis.

    The SCOTUS decision states they cannot withhold Medicaid money for non-compliance. That was the part ruled unconstitutional by Roberts, Breyer and Kagan.

    Ft. Sumpter comes to mind.

    I see now why the Civil War was fought.
