“In creating a 10-member commission to examine the hospitals over the next year, Scott raised the fundamental question in his executive order of "whether it is in the public best interest to have government entities operating hospitals."

My question is: IS this a FREE of Charge PANEL or are they paid? If so, HOW MUCH, because if we are so broke, how can we take the spoon away from the baby, how can we pay a panel on its outcome?

If, on the other hand, these individuals are but volunteers, each giving their time in helping out and being their brothers keepers, we praise them all and salute the Governor; otherwise, the road to hell is paved with good intentions! Drop the extra salaries we cannot afford and put it into that hospital, thus giving baby back his spoon!
