I predicted this sad socialist Rick Scott defeat months ago

While absolutely owning it as the Beast on Halloween, I accurately predicted the fall of the last rose petal on the latest Rick Scott socialist scheme. That came today as Rep. Chris Sprowls, being a conservative, refused to spread the wealth with his health care transparency bill.

Christine Jordan Sexton said Scott’s office gave this bill a “chilly reception.”

Scott’s administration is “unhappy.”

Good for Sprowls. Good for Richard Corcoran.

To recap:

Socialist swing and miss #1: Profit Sharing!

Socialist swing and miss #2: Price Caps!

Socialist swing and miss #3: TBD

We all know why Rick Scott is channeling his self loathing at hospitals, so it’s kind of sad.

But it also makes you wonder, with all this socialism going around the Governor’s Office, maybe his next USA Today op-ed will explain why Bernie Sanders has the “pulse” of Rick Scott?
