The man who has made a career out of trying to kill the Affordable Care Act, Florida Governor Rick Scott, now says he's willing to drop his opposition to the law.
Color me skeptical, because I'm finding this a bit hard to swallow.
"The election is over and President Obama won," Scott said. "I'm responsible for the families of Florida ... If I can get to yes, I want to get to yes."
Scott had previously stated that he would not go along with any parts of the health care overhaul that the state controls.
But his newfound willingness to have a "conversation" about putting it in place in Florida comes at a critical time.
States have until Friday to notify federal authorities whether they plan to set up health insurance exchanges, a marketplace where individuals and smalls businesses can shop for the most affordable coverage and where many will get help from the government to pay their premiums.
Florida so far has taken no steps to set up its own exchange.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced an extension last week. She still wants to hear if states will be setting up health insurance markets under the law. But governors can now take another month, until mid-December, to submit detailed blueprints.
Most states have been on the fence awaiting the election outcome. They now have three options: running their own exchanges, operating an exchange in partnership with the federal health officials, or letting the feds handle everything.
Scott said he still has concerns about the exchanges, including the cost of running one and whether it would increase the cost of health care for families. But he said he's sure federal officials want to find ways to provide affordable health care to people.
