Scott: White House like 'The Sopranos'

Gov. Rick Scott is comparing the Obama administration to The Sopranos and accusing the president of not caring for low-income families, even as the Republican governor refuses to expand Medicaid insurance to more than 800,000 low-income families.

Scott announced Thursday that he planned to sue the federal government, which he accuses of withholding federal hospital funds from the state only because he won't expand Medicaid.

"They don't care about the low-income families because they're willing to walk away from a program. This is The Sopranos," Scott said during an interview with Fox News on Thursday night.

The fight with the federal government is over more than $1 billion in funds that help hospitals who care for low-income patients.
