Health care fight breaks out in meeting with Rick Scott, Florida delegation



WASHINGTON - Didn't take long for the heated health care debate to surface in a meeting of Gov.-elect Rick Scott and the Florida Congressional delegation this afternoon.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, started it by urging Scott not to spend time and energy trying to repeal the law. But Scott, unflappable at the head of the table, said that's exactly what he's going to do. He deemed the law the biggest "job killer ever in the history of this country."

Rep. Jeff Miller, a Panhandle Republican, chimed in telling Scott that's exactly what he should spend as much time as he has available on the repeal effort.
