6. RICK SCOTT VETO’S PRISON REFORM MEASURE
Rick Scott veto of HB 177 a hugely- popular reform measure that would have authorized the Department of Justice to create a drug-treatment intensive program for select non-violent offenders that could have saved tax payers tens of thousands of tax dollars by allowing sentencing courts to convert the remaining prison sentence of those prisoners who successfully completed the program into drug offender probation. This program could have resulted in a reduced rate of recidivism among those participating.

The FBI and IRS investigated Columbia/HCA while Rick Scott was in charge. Most of his money came from that company. Columbia/HCA paid $2 billion in fees, reimbursements and lawsuits. This was considered the largest Medicare and Medicaid fraud settlement in U.S. history. Scott made his money in spite of running a company that committed wide scale fraud. As the head of the company committing the largest Medicare fraud in U.S. history, WE ALLOWED HIM TO BE ELECTED GOVERNOR!
