ECFP,Rigs on the West Coast of Florida, and on the East Coast of Florida, along with California's coast is what it will take to bring energy independence to America. Not to mention Alaska and many other places where people don't want them. You can't have your cake and eat it to. Offshore rigs up and down the coast of Florida would be great for jobs and real estate in the state. Sadly, here and in everywhere else, the people will cry, "not in my back yard" and nothing will ever happen. The politicians will argue over it pretending to care.
The health care system is just broken. Price fixing is legal for the Rx drug companies here. The health insurance industry doesn't want the market opened across state lines. They will lose control if that happens. There are different prices for the same prodedures at the same medical facilities. Cost is based on if you have insurance, if you have medicare, if you pay cash, etc. The system will collapse soon being run like this. That will be the best thing that can happen to it. Take away medicare and medicaid. Return insurance back to it's original intent of only being needed for catastrophic incidents. Let the people determine what they need, how often, and what they are willing to pay for it. Prices will plunge in healthcare overnight.
