PolitiFact Florida: Our 'greatest hits' of Florida fact-checks on health care



 The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to announce its decision on the constitutionality of the health care debate today. Florida's political figures have certainly had their say on the law, so today PolitiFact Florida looks back on our most memorable fact-checks on health care.

Gov. Rick Scott: He said the law would be "the biggest job killer ever" (False) and "probably the biggest tax increase ever in the history of our country." (False)

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio: His 2010 campaign said this: "The path to ObamaCare becoming law all started with Charlie Crist supporting President Obama's $787 billion stimulus." (Pants on Fire!)

Former U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson: The Republican Party of Florida said Grayson "compared a former vice president to a vampire ... and compared America's health care system to the Holocaust." (Mostly True)
