Alan Grayson: Gov. Rick Scott will have blood on his hands (Video)

Democratic candidate Alan Grayson said Wednesday that people in Florida would suffer because Gov. Rick Scott (R) refused to implement parts of the Affordable Care Act.

“There’s literally thousands of people who will live if Medicaid is expanded in Florida, and die if it isn’t,” he told Current TV host Eliot Spitzer. “And their blood will be on Rick Scott’s hands.”

After the Affordable Care Act was upheld by the Supreme Court, Scott told Fox News that he would fight its implementation in Florida. Specifically, he said he opposed creating insurance exchanges and the expansion of the Medicaid program, which provides health care to the poor.

Scott said the Medicaid expansion would be too expensive for the state, even though the federal government will pay for 93 percent of the costs over the next nine years.
