The health care plan being assembled in the Senate is undoubtedly a travesty. What’s more - it’s an affront to representative democracy.
Millions of Florida children, seniors, and families have health care today through the Affordable Care Act or Medicaid. The Republican health care plan has put their future in doubt.
It cuts funding for public schools, devastates health care, and ignores the will of the voters on the environment. It’s Florida’s proposed state budget, it’s an absolute disgrace, and Gov. Scott needs to veto it.
Florida's refusal to expand the Medicaid program has had numerous negative consequences for our state. One of the more tragic is that Florida children who would have received coverage with expansion have not.
Both Republicans and Democrats in the Florida Senate have agreed to expand health coverage, and it’s time for the House and Gov. Scott to follow suit. Let’s break the logjam.
Call 866-443-1844 today and tell your state representative that it is time to stop playing politics and expand health care for more than one million hard-working Floridians.
A week from now, the Florida Legislature will return to Tallahassee for "committee weeks" where legislative committees begin the process of crafting bills for next year's legislative session, among other duties. This is a great opportunity to remind lawmakers of one of their biggest failures in the 2013 session, and pressure them to fix it in 2014, that is their failure to expand health care to more than a million hard working Floridians.
