Here's that earlier post on Scott's alleged crimes
I'll repost it:

That's what the attacks from the left claim but there's more details to the story. Including how many companies interpreted Medicare regulations incorrectly. Plus the claims on Columbia/HCA network went as far back as 1987, years before those hospitals became part of Rick Scott’s merger. Also, there were thousands of companies charged with fraud. Virtually the entire industry was affected. Among those hit the hardest: Harvard University Hospitals, University of Chicago Hospital,Yale Hospital, Duke University Hospital, and the prestigious Johns Hopkins university hospital, just to name a few. Some turned out to be honest mistakes and the healthcare industry started pushing back. Eventually, the government was forced to launch a program to help train hospital billing personnel in how to properly interpret Medicare billing regulations.
Now notice, how we don't hear anything about all those other hospitals....only
the one that Scott was involved in. The left is so predictable. Cherry picking facts at its finest!
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
