Senator Marco Rubio is shying away from Florida Gov. Rick Scott, following Scott’s controversial expansion of Florida’s Medicaid program.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is also distancing himself from the governor’s move, reportedly telling state lawmakers that he is against the expansion.

“Governor Scott made a difficult decision that highlights the need for reforming Medicaid and giving states more flexibility," Alex Conant, Rubio’s spokesman said in a statement.

“Specifically, Senator Rubio is concerned that without future reforms, the decision will leave the state of Florida on the hook for billions of dollars of unfunded mandates in the future.”

Rubio remains committed to repealing Obamacare and reforming Medicaid, according to Conant.
