By JAVIER MANJARRESFlorida Speaker of the House, Will Weatherford is doubling-down on his opposition of the Obamacare Medicaid expansion that Governor Rick Scott has recently said he would accept.
Weatherford said he hasn’t heard much from the Governor about their opposition, and along with his colleagues in the Florida Legislature, respect his opinion, but disagree with him on the expansion of Medicaid.
I don’t see the Florida House or the Senate expanding Medicaid as we know it.-Rep. Will Weatherford
Some Florida politicos have been saying that Weatherford could be in position to challenge Scott in a Republican Gubernatorial primary, come 2014. The Speaker shot down this notion by saying that he was “Very happy being Speaker of the House” and that he was “laser focused on being a good speaker.”But is a 2016 run for higher office out of the question for Weatherford? Well according to him, “You never know, you never say never.”
