Scott vic­tory in Florida gover­nor’s race draws mixed re­ac­tion

We can now look to Gov. Rick Scott to solve the nation’s health­care cri­sis (“Scott wins Florida gover­nor’s race,” ModernHealth­care.com, Nov. 3). He knows how to run hos­pi­tals and doc­tors. He will get to the heart of the prob­lem—ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness—rather than who is go­ing to pay for it.

I would ex­pect with Florida’s higher-than-av­er­age Medi­care pop­u­la­tion, the so­lu­tions found there will soon be a model and adopted in other states. I look for­ward to Scott turn­ing the tide and bring­ing back Amer­ica’s com­pet­i­tive­ness. Once health­care costs are un­der con­trol, more jobs will be cre­ated here in the U.S. and less will be out­sourced. To my fel­low health­care work­ers in Florida, we are watch­ing you and count­ing on you to lead the way out of the health­care cri­sis in Amer­ica.
