Governor should do what Kentucky did

To the editor:

It seems that our governor might be having a change of mind on health care. He now wants to do something similar to Obamacare, even a Web site and a Marketplace. Plans would cover those people who are most left out and are angry. In politics I think they call it cover your ---. Perhaps he should take his lessons from Kentucky.

Kentuckians know a good thing when they see it, or perhaps it's more like when they don't see it. Or perhaps a rose by any other name is blue grass in Kentucky. Just don't connect it with Washington.

I would not want to be guilty of bias and prejudging Mr. Scott's idea, but the plan doesn't appear to be as good for Florida as Obamacare (oops, don't use that name).

The President gave the Kentucky plan a boost in the State of the Union speech. He relays how common this hate is in many other areas of our country. He knows the success of the ACA will send many politicians packing.

The opposition at the state and federal levels is running out of ammunition. Is the governor's action a sign of surrender or is it just another delaying tactic? I guess we will just have to wait and suffer.
