Oh! And he basically crafts policy for the sole purpose of personal enrichment. If there's one word that could account for Scott's dramatic fall from -- we hesitate to use the word, but, okay -- "grace," it is Solantic. That's the name of Scott's post-HCA company, a chain of urgent care facilities in which he had a $62 million stake.You see he doesn't care how unpopular he is or if he gets a second term. Hhe will have ripped off the citizens of Florida and laughed all the way to the bank. This is what low information voting does and the scary thing is that this is happening all over the country. The goal is to keep the electorate at home or too stupid to make a good decision. So far the goals are being met and this country is in real danger of becoming a third world nation.
But rather then divest himself of the company, he shifted his share to his wife, a move that met "the letter of Florida ethics laws, if not the spirit."
He then set about crafting policy designed to ensure that Solantic would do very, very well:
Scott and Florida Republicans are currently trying to enact a sweeping Medicaid reform bill that would give HMOs and other private health care companies unprecedented control over the government health care program for the poor. Among the companies that stand to benefit from the bill is Solantic, a chain of urgent-care clinics aimed at providing emergency services to walk-in customers.

Floridians Realize They Hired A Crook
I hate to say I told you so but anyone with any sense would have seen this coming. Why would someone with no prior interest in politics but a real interest in ripping people off want to be the Governor of a struggling state? It seems his own financial enrichment was the real goal.
