Gov. Rick Scott and several other Republican governors want to meet with President Barack Obama to discuss the federal health overhaul, including ways to make expanding the Medicaid rolls and setting up online health exchanges more affordable for states with tight budgets.
The request comes after the Obama administration said Monday that states can do a partial Medicaid expansion, but they wouldn't get the three years of 100 percent federal funding provided under the law.
Scott had previously requested to meet with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to discuss his concerns that the law could burden state taxpayers.
He told reporters Tuesday he was disappointed in her new position. He recently sent a letter along with several other Republican governors requesting a meeting with Obama.
