Ouch. A woman gave Gov. Rick Scott quite a talking-to in a Gainesville Starbucks.

And it's all on video.

In the video, the woman yells at the governor for opposing Medicaid expansion, calling him an "a------" and spokeswoman Jeri Bustamante tries to intervene before the woman says "I'm not talking to you."

Scott, for his part, turns to his centerpiece issue as governor.

"We've got a million jobs," he says.

That doesn't bring the woman to his side. You can watch the whole confrontation, filmed by a man who identifies himself as Stephen Bender.

The woman who yelled at the governor has been identified as Cara Jennings, an activist and a former Lake Worth city commissioner.

Jennings, now a stay-at-home mom, told a TV station that she was on her laptop in Starbucks when she noticed the governor.
