Governor Scott on Amtrak on Florida East Coast

It's as simple a matter as profit and loss to Governor Scott. He won't support Amtrak service over the Florida East Coast Railway unless there is a "return" to taxpayers.

    Just like his corrupt business affairs at HealthSouth, Governor Scott will be just as inept in handling affairts as governor. His only interests lie with what is good for the panhandle area of Florida only; and Panama City is the only place where you can't get there from here in the rest of the state by not only train, but by bus and air as well. Panama City is a big loser for Florida development. I see bigger holes in the rest of Florida's pockets as long as Scott stays in office. As long as Scott listens to the train haters at libertarian organizations such as Reason Foundation and the Cato Institute, we have a my-way-or-the-highway egotist as our governor.

      Yeah, you're right. Rick Scott in Fl and Scott Walker in WI have drunk the Charlie Sheen Kool-Aid; high on themselves and all about "Winning" at all costs. Maybe they'll get recalled, or at least be one-termers.

        Recalling the governor sounds like a good idea. I would dearly love to payback the libertarians for calling back Gray Davis in California, after an initiative was started by Congressman Darrell"the car alarm inventor" Issa.
