The dominoes are dropping in opposition to the Affordable Care Act. According to these reports, the original party to the Medicaid expansion petition to the Supreme Court has dropped their opposition to the Affordable Care Act's coverage expansions. This is significant for Florida's poor residents.

1. I wondered how long it would take him.

When you don't have state income taxes you pretty much have no choice,now how is he going to get rid of that 20 billion or more debt. In order for the republican party to survive the near future they are really going to have to find away to be more moderate.

3. My initial reaction was that this must be from the Onion.

Shows how far the GOP has fallen.

4. Ohio's Kasich made some remark about compassion for poor people in his "State of the State" address

...a few days ago. He was defending his expansion of Medicaid.

5. Scott

is breaking his neck trying to appear as a moderate before the 2014 election, as his approval numbers are underwater. Scott will probably get jammed by the Florida House and Senate, as they are still opposed to supporting the expansion. The state Tea-Bagger nut jobs are on the warpath against Scott after this announcement, they are making threats to stay home come election day. With Sink bowing out of the upcoming election, it appears that if Crist wants to DEM spot then it is his to take.
