The March 13 editorial, An indefensible decision, presents in stark and sobering detail the impact of the “Legislature’s reluctance to expand Medicaid protection to some 900,000 state residents who don’t have healthcare protection today. . . . It would be indefensible for Gov. Scott to back away from this fight [for Medicaid expansion]. It’s not only morally right — it makes good business sense for Florida taxpayers.”
Can one be a good Jew, Christian, Muslim or follower of any recognized faith and not support the expansion of Medicaid to our needy fellow citizens, who are, after all, our neighbors, our brothers and sisters?
