next week to meet separately with both the republican and democratic caucuses in both chambers. turns out the tea party is just not that into rick scott anymore. henry kelly has some creative words for the florida governor who, shockingly, decided to back the affordable care act expansion of medicaid for people making up to 133% of the poverty level. kelly writes on his blog "i'm trying to figure out how medicaid is going to pay to remove the knife in my back." scott is not shy about making a complete 180 after federal government granted florida a waiver to use private funds for plans. scott has a history of being cool with taxpayer money fund-raising private industry. they may win on killing the medicaid expansion anyway because a special committee in the republican-dominated state house has voted to get rid of it. we're back after the break. stay with us.

6:20 am
that obama may be dealing with republicans who are more ideological and self-destructive, he's still expressed a blind faith in their reasonableness. our president is nothing if not smart. he has adapted. fortunately or our nation, the president seems to have hit upon a strategy that works. democrats seem to be more mainstreamed. this is the latest poll by a 3-1 margin, the latest "wall street journal" nbc poll, the g.o.p. prefers partisanship to unity. our president has conclude rather that try to reason with his adversaries, it is better to fight off the bad guys. he's talking about that he's been out at least on the road talking about this. that he's been -- what else can he do but try to bring public pressure to bear on these people. i was reading a headline today that now that they've gotten these cuts, it is like any hostage crisis, now they want more! now paul ryan is talking about privatizing medicare even more.

7:04 am
today. he is releasing it to congress. in it, he interviews prime minister nouri al-maliki who says u.s. money could have done a lot but was misspent and fell short and all in all had an unfavorable outcome. we spent $15 million a day to help iraq get back on its feet. the nation still suffers from corruption and infighting. its residents live in poverty with no guarantee of clean water or electricity and the fear of daily bombings. the report details the waste and fraud and failures and it is infuriating. senator susan collins said the bush administration should have made the money a loan to iraq instead of an outright gift. that would have helped keep expenditures in check. the hindsight is useful if we get smart about oversight in afghanistan and make sure the $90 billion we spent in the past 12 years there on reconstruction also isn't a giant waste once we leave. we're back after the break.

that's the first thing a nanny does is take away your video game. time-out republicans. is that what you're doing? you don't want to solve the actual problem. >> yet they're putting guns in the hands of 4-year-olds. >> stephanie: actual ones, not toy guns. >> why is somebody who is running for office who played -- they would have no problem with an actor who played a serial killer running for office if he killed people, shot them in the head and stuff. they would never bring that up as the reason not to vote for them. if a woman in a consensual sex scene or portraying a rape victim to show the aftermath of what happens when someone tries to report a rape, all of the story lines, that somehow is offensive. >> ooh, we saw her boobs. >> stephanie: 46 minutes after the hour. back with the remaining moments. hump days with hal sparks on "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: she's your human happy pill. ♪ happy, happy, joy joy joy ♪ >> announcer: it's "the stephanie miller show."
