Republicans in the US Senate have given their health care plan a different name “Graham-Cassidy”, but it’s almost entirely the same old, disastrous, morally reprehensible health care bill that was defeated by one vote in July. It’s on a fast track for a vote and your voice is needed right now.
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.
