FL Gov softens stance, ready to negotiate on Obamacare
Florida Gov. Rick Scott, one of the most vocal critics of the federal health care overhaul, is dropping his staunch opposition to the law. Scott said in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press that he now wants to negotiate with the federal government. He said it's time for Republicans to offer solutions to help families after they lost their bid to defeat President Barack Obama. Scott had previously stated that he would not go along with any parts of the health care overhaul that the state controls.
