Florida Turns Down Obamacare Money

The Obamacare Disaster

Kudos to the state of Florida
(Politico)- No thanks. That’s what the state of Florida is saying to the Obama administration, declining a $1 million grant to implement the health law.
The move follows this week’s federal court decision declaring the law unconstitutional.
In a letter sent Tuesday and obtained by POLITICO, Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty informed the Department of Health & Human Services that the state no longer wanted a $1 million grant that they had applied for last year.
“The purpose of this letter is to inform you that after deliberate consideration, I hereby rescind acceptance of the above-referenced $1 million rate review grant, which occurred in a letter to you dated September 15, 2010,” McCarty wrote.
