Heard on NPR today that Florida has a huge problem with unregulated supply of prescription painkillers such as Oxycodone because the state does not have a working program to monitor these drugs.  Yet the state governor Rick Scott spoke out against a planned program, saying “I believe it’s an invasion of privacy and … it appears that the money’s been wasted.”  Here are 10 reasons why the governor is against the drug monitoring program:

1) He is on some of those pills.

2) Floridians should have the access to the painkillers because the recession is really hurting the state’s residents.

3) The drug dealers are not unionized and therefore are not even a tiny bit evil.

4) Rick Scott cannot support the program that the Democrats would support.

5) Because any kind of regulation is evil and Florida will be getting rid of its police force, environment protection and sanitation as well.

6) Drug dealers create jobs and attract visitors to the state.

7) He said: “I believe it’s an invasion of privacy and … it appears that the money’s been wasted.”  Meaning that the governor had taken the money and gave it as a tax cut to the individuals whose names he’d rather not disclose.

8) Allowing people to buy painkillers is cheaper and easier than providing health insurance.

9) The governor has a serious addition to campaign donations from pharmaceutical companies.

10) The people who take Oxycontin also vote in the gubernatorial elections.
