The woman can be heard yelling at the governor for opposing Medicaid expansion, stating: “You cut Medicaid, so I couldn’t get Obamacare.”

The woman then calls Scott a profanity and continues: “You don’t care about working people. … You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”

Scott responded by saying the state has 1 million jobs.

That only made the woman more upset. “You stripped women of public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott. We depend on those services.”

According to The Gainesville Sun, the woman in the video is Cara Jennings, a former Lake Worth city commissioner.

In the video, it appears as if Scott and his team leave the coffee shop without ordering any items as the woman continued to yell.
