-- -- -- midwest -- Atlantic are picking up from a weekend of severe weather Florida is still assessing the damage from tropical storm Debby which is -- for seven deaths.
Joining us -- to talk about how his home state is -- and a whole lot more.
-- -- governor Rick Scott joins us -- governor thinks it's imminent.
My house is you know as scary time you know with the got a lot of rain some of the areas that we seven inches of rain in 24 hours and so our rivers flooded where Werth would come back now we're back to the sunshine state.
Of those -- county -- has some damage they've had some -- -- in some issues like that but I've traveled the State Department people and you -- -- just like up here your heart goes out.
These families that there are homes are in our this -- -- gone bell answered here he just socialist heart for.
Any -- -- recovery costs at you know what we're doing is we started on Friday -- in the assessments FEMA.
So this hopefully by the notes in this week we'll have an idea of the -- the damage.
And they know the panel how much out supports federal government gives us -- -- the different programs we've participated.
Okay I wanna turn a couple of hot topics coming at a Florida -- been under fire from the justice department for the voter purge that you've been doing folks who -- Either here illegally are -- dead or for some reason they don't belong in the voter rolls.
Get a win this week with a federal judge Clinton appointee who said you were right to move forward as it it relates to non citizens who may be on the rolls.
Can you give us the status has the -- stopped what are your plans and.
All right you know as you know wasn't purge you know what we've been now working with the federal government for a year asking for the homeland security and security database.
Which -- are we have -- -- that database to figure out who is not US's going to be that.
I've not -- one person's country this is non US citizens should vote races we want fair honest races.
But this week justice lost.
We won the judge said it was irreparable harm for our citizens if you have non citizens voting.
-- continue to work hopefully this wolf.
Give Homeland Security there reason to give us the database we can do this.
Right and also announced the -- court's decision Florida was the lead of challenging the president's health -- law.
It was upheld by the court is funny constitutional under the taxing power.
But there's another part of the case that folks are talking now which is the Medicaid expansion -- -- -- states including Florida worried about the cost of taking on millions of new people onto the rolls under the health care law.
Chief Justice John Roberts felt that there was coercion or there was a threat -- from the federal government that if you didn't take those new people you could lose existing Medicaid funds.
On he took that out of the equation and a lot of people's next question was -- what's to stop states from opting out of Medicaid expansion are you saying that you're not gonna take part.
We're we're neck and up and we're in and we're not gonna implement that we just can't afford it it's.
It will be -- one just -- for -- -- one point nine billion dollar increase.
In cost but in outlets covered by the federal government but that's still sort of taxpayers -- it sound like -- -- -- -- federal money.
Every federal program all point cuts back and you create this dependency.
And then they cut -- like what they did with their schools to with the stimulus and the cut back so.
Where do the right things for our citizens.
He was so frustrated about obamacare is it was supposed to folks on the cost of health care this did nothing to do with the cost health care.
There's some things you should do it sure consumers know what things cost create more competition give individuals the same tax breaks as employers -- you own your own policy.
Reward people for taking care of themselves that would drive down costs of health care of volunteers -- none of those things.
So we're not what we're not gonna expand Medicaid it's bad for our citizens.
It will watch to see other states join you in making that decision governor Scott always good to see thank you for commencing.
