His strongarmed tactics with insurers here has done the populace no favors. Nothing makes insurers want to come into Florida more than a hostile business environment.
Let market forces (ie, supply and demand) determine the cost of insurance; don't mandate lower rates when it's neither prudent nor actuarially sound to do so.
He'd probably be a good choice to win an election. But I have no idea what we'd get with McCain and him in office.
Regardless of whether or not I live in Florida (or agree with him on everything politically), he has nearly an 80% approval rating, heh. One can assume that'll make a difference in a florida election.
