FL Medicaid Expansion (3)

Florida's Republican leaders have made it abundantly clear that they don't like the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

With Attorney General Pam Bondi taking the lead, Florida was one of 26 states claiming that the Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional. They lost in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Florida lawmakers may vote to spend millions of dollars to encourage sick people to use local health care services — just not the hundreds of thousands of poor and uninsured people who actually live in the Sunshine State.

Republican-controlled States are refusing to take free federal money to expand Medicaid health care coverage to the working poor. My State, Florida, is one of them. The consequences of this callous GOP decision are grave. In a column for the Tampa Bay Times last week, I explained how grave they were for Charlene Dill - they put her in her grave. Please take a moment to read my piece, entitled "The price of ideology: a woman's life."
