Florida Gov. Rick Scott said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama has not called him after the worst terrorist attack on US soil – which took place in Scott’s home state – since September 11, 2001.

“No. He has not called,” the Republican governor told “Fox & Friends.”

Scott noted that a “staffer has called,” but reiterated that Obama has “not called.”

[VIDEO] Dr. Krauthammer’s Clinical Diagnosis: ‘Early-Onset Clinton Fatigue’

The problem  for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to Charles Krauthammer: “She can’t run on her record.”tiredhillary

“Ask yourself, what did she achieve as secretary of state? Nothing. What was her signature achievement as senator? I can’t remember. What did she achieve as first lady? Hillarycare, which went down in flames.”

(Implementing it lawfully, that is, would cripple it.) Most states have not created exchanges, and in those states the law as written does not authorize the administration to offer tax credits–and, because of that, limits its ability to impose its penalties on employers and individuals.

Republican governors who say they oppose Obamacare even though they have taken some of the Medicaid money it offers–governors like Rick Scott, Chris Christie, and John Kasich–should be especially eager to get on board this lawsuit. These governors have not set up exchanges. They can protect their citizens and businesses from Obamacare penalties through the suit. Read the rest of this entry »
