-- fallout in the sunshine state over the US Supreme Court ruling on health -- Florida governor Rick Scott -- that he state will continue to fight it attorney general -- bond he appeared on America's Newsroom last Friday with.
Some reasons why Nicholas.
And we still believe it's unconstitutional.
It is such an overreach by the federal government.
Well you know we have -- Federalist society.
And our founding fathers firmly believed that states should have the right to do.
What we feel it's best for our individual state and and that's that's the biggest fear of this opinion the biggest.
-- -- They have governor Rick Scott here in our New York studio welcome our estimate here that -- -- -- he's done a wonderful job.
It's very disappointed with them -- the Supreme Court did.
This is going to be devastating for patients well.
It's in the first why Florida would opt out of Medicaid expansion since the federal government at least in the early years it's gonna be a 100% -- you just said it in the early years but on top of that is suffering I mean it's one it's one point nine billion dollars a year.
You're still pain I mean that Florida taxpayers are paying federal taxes.
On top of that -- -- -- and then cover all of it in the first three years then Florida taxpayers are gonna be on the hook yet but we're only what 10% in but in but eventually will be on the hook for you know fifty you know 45%.
So he made it never looked.
Government health care programs everywhere in the world do three things they promise you the world -- elegant cover everything.
-- what they do is they run out of money and they under pay hospitals doctors and guess what happens they don't want to take care.
There's fewer of them decide what's -- in England can to places like that so year -- you care about patients this is devastating for but what happens governor that the thousands of folks -- will fall under that mandatory.
I expansion of Medicare the 133%.
Of the poverty and we are we have a very good kids -- program we are have -- very Medicaid program that covers up.
Some individuals up to -- and 33% of poverty.
But if you wanna fix the system he -- -- make sure people get health care they use the free market.
-- individuals know what things cost.
Make sure providers there's more competition which drives -- price.
Do you care about preexisting condition give you the same tax breaks as employers view on your own policies he'll lose it when you change jobs.
And reward people for not smoking for exercising for.
He hit those things the cost of health care will come down but that's our problem are you telling mean if Florida -- out which is what you're saying unity deal Medicaid expansion.
People nevertheless all people in Florida will still be able to get health care.
Opinion the whole focus is that I'm focus on in them jobs that's how they get health care.
I'm talking about some people -- gets it they will get health care everybody in Florida you give health care today.
Right you you know you you buy -- buy health care insurance with this is actually gonna do is is -- -- is going to be more difficult to get actual health care insurance is not the answer its drive down the cost of health care.
You have insurance in countries like UK.
In Canada where they -- we cover you.
But the you don't get it.
Because it's -- that's what's gonna happen you're also intending opt out of the insurance mandate or excuse me the -- of the insurance exchanges why they don't work if it if there was such a great idea the private sector would do it.
At and we you know the Congressional Budget Office said if you're gonna buy your own policy with these exchanges you'll be paying 10% more family well.
Between what are about 2100 dollars more for family.

With these exchanges they don't work and government involvement health care has only cost health care -- to go up.
