Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
The hypocrisy it burns. The totally corrupt right-wing wingnut governor of Florida, Rick Scott, is taking credit for new Florida jobs being created by the implementation of Obamacare, although he has been vehemently opposed to the new health care law and even was elected due to his opposition. He has called the law "biggest job-killer ever"
HealthPlan Services, a Tampa company that helps small companies and individuals purchase and manage health insurance policies, said it plans to add more than 1,000 jobs over five years to its Tampa headquarters near the Florida State Fairgrounds. Company CEO Jeffrey Bak said the expansion would "probably not" be occurring without the health care law, a cornerstone of which requires most people to purchase health insurance.
Scott, a former hospital chain CEO, rose to national prominence opposing changes to the health care system being pushed by President Barack Obama and Democrats. He then used that prominence as a platform to run for governor and continued to fight the law once taking office.
In a March 2012 Fox News interview, Scott said he ran for governor on a campaign of "getting our state back to work" and that the health care law "will be the biggest job-killer ever."
