  •  Speaker of the FL House Weatherford is the worst (1+ / 0-)

    bucket of stupid.

    The Speaker of the Florida House, Will Weatherford, is the one who prevented the Medicaid expansion under the ACA from going through.  Weatherford is one of those shady Rethuglicans who has several "consulting" jobs for big bidness in Florida, yet none of those companies can actually provide a job description of what he does.  

    The Florida Senate's Rethuglicans passed a bill last year that would have "privatized" the Medicaid expansion, much like the Arkansas plan.  But Weatherford refused to allow the Florida House to even vote on the Senate plan. Weatherford's justifications for this include most of the standard Fox memes about how the federal government can't be trusted. Even that reliable bastion of Rethuglican love, the Florida Chamber of Commerce, is behind the Medicaid expansion, but not even the Chamber can dissuade Weatherford.  It's crazy here.  It is truly bats%#t crazy here.
