No Medicaid decision from Fla. Legislature

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Democratic leaders want Republican Gov. Rick Scott to veto the state budget or call a special session after the Legislature adjourned without passing an expansion of the state’s Medicaid program.

House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston said some low-income Floridians are not benefiting from the budget.

In an unusual alliance, Scott, Senate Republicans, Democrats, Florida hospitals, health advocates and a diverse mix of business and labor groups all supported a bill that would have drawn down more than $50 billion from the federal government over the next decade. That would have allowed an estimated 1.1 million low-income Floridians to purchase private insurance.

But leaders in the GOP-led Florida House refused to consider that proposal, saying they didn’t want to take funds tied to President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Florida lawmakers adjourned their legislative session tonight.

The baby boomer generation DESTROYED DESTROYED DESTROYED The United States of America!

Why does our country need to expand a program for baby boomers? Baby boomers are domestic terrorists!

The free spirited baby boomer generation of "Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll". This baby boomer generation DESTROYED DESTROYED DESTROYED The United States of America.

The baby boomers gave us a country of the entitlement mentality, the drug culture, excess, laziness, "I'm getting mine - you get yours", and on and on.

The baby boomers o.k.'d drugs decades ago, but the decent and moral and tax paying fear of god folk have tried to save this country.

Baby boomers gave us gateway drugs like marijuana. AND if marijuana IS a gateway drug onto heroine and crack, well, just imagine how many souls with a sense of entitlement minds will go to waste- all offspring of the baby boomers. Hey it's what THEY wanted anyway.

So lets vote no to expanding entitlements to baby boomers and vote no to EVERY entitlement for the baby boomer generation- social security, health care, medicare/medicaid, pensions/retirement, etc..

The baby boomers either smoked up our country or spent their savings, spent it all in Vegas and Disney World and now they want U.S. TAXPAYERS to bail THEM out?!

See. The baby boomers continue to ruin this country. First with drugs and now economically.

What will you baby boomers do to ruin our country next?

Sounds like somebody blaming others for their own miserable life to me.
