Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) was one of those tea party stars
whom voters believed had the courage of his convictions when he promised, as
recently as last summer, to block The Affordable Care Act in his state. But
last week, writes the Orlando Sentinel, "Scott made an abrupt about-face,
embracing a three-year expansion of Medicaid coverage for about 1 million
low-income Floridians that will be paid for by the health care law."
