Florida gives back money to implement Obamacare

Anyone think those elections in Florida were not important?
Florida officials made their direction clear: We will not move forward to implement this law.

Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty on Tuesday gave back a $1 million federal grant awarded to the state to assist with reforms. The money would have paid for a system to provide information to consumers on the rates of large-group insurers.

And Florida Gov. Rick Scott said the state will wait until the U.S. Supreme Court weighs in on the case before it plans for pieces of the legislation that haven't gone into effect.

"We are not going to spend a lot of time and money with regard to trying to get ready to implement it," he said.
