Rick Scott heads to Washington for meeting with John Boehner



Gov.-elect Rick Scott on Wednesday is expected to attend a meeting of Republican governors and incoming House Speaker John Boehner to talk about efforts to repeal the health care law and to create jobs.

"Washington doesn’t have all the answers, and the best solutions usually come from outside the Beltway,” Boehner said in a statement.  "Republicans may still be outnumbered in Washington, but with the American people and reform-minded governors standing with us, there’s a lot we can do together to stop runaway government spending and help small businesses get back to creating jobs."

Governors-elect expected to attend include Robert Bentley, Ala.; Scott, Fla.; Terry Branstad, Iowa; Sam Brownback, Kan.; Paul LePage, Maine; Rick Snyder, Mich.; Brian Sandoval, Nev.; Susana Martinez, N.M.; John Kasich, Ohio; Mary Fallin, Okla.; Tom Corbett, Pa.; Nikki Haley, S.C.; Dennis Daugaard, S.D.; Bill Haslam, Tenn.; and Matt Mead, Wyo.  Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other congressional Republicans also are expected to participate.
