Gov. Rick Scott hints at $5 billion budget cut

Gov. Rick Scott's refusal to talk about any details in his upcoming budget proposal has increased anticipation and raised expectations for the Feb. 7 release.

But the normally tight-lipped Scott might have let a detail slip today...

In playful banter with Scott after a press gaggle, a reporter offered to lose a certain amount of weight based on the difference between Scott's budget proposal and the state's current $70.4 billion budget.

Scott, a health nut with a predilection for brokering deals, made the reporter a counter offer and crafted it in a way that suggested his budget proposal would be $5 billion less than the state's current spending plan.
