    Somebody explained on one of the shows I was watching that the ACA took the money that was slated for hospitals (to cover indigent patients) and put it into the Medicaid expansion. This person said that the reason Rick Scott was leaning toward accepting the Medicaid expansion money is because he was getting hell from the hospitals. The problem I see, though, is that the Medicaid funds will go further if they don't have to make a stop at insurance company's pockets. So, it seems the hospitals might get screwed anyway.
