Fact-checking Rick Scott's ad about Obamacare and Charlie Crist

PolitiFact fact-checked two claims in a new attack ad by Gov. Rick Scott's political committee. 

The ad repeats snippets of Crist’s March 9 interview on CNN when he called Obamacare "great." Here’s part of the ad script:

"Great?" the narrator says. "News reports say 300,000 health plans cancelled. Obama says patients may lose their doctors. The federal government says less work hours for American jobs," the narrator says, as an apparent quote from a February Congressional Budget Office report appears on the screen: "Obamacare will drive 2.5 million Americans out of the workforce."

Are 2.5 million Americans being driven out of the workforce due to Obamacare? Read here for the answer.

Did Obamacare result in 300,000 plans being cancelled? Read here for the answer.
