It is morally outrageous that the Florida Legislature, principally the House, has passed up $51 billion in Medicaid funding over 10 years as part of Obamacare to cover more than million of Florida’s uninsured.
As a result, these Floridians will continue to experience severe economic hardship from crippling out-of-pocket medical expenses, poor health outcomes, chronic pain, emergency-room care and, in some cases, death.
Let’s hope Gov. Scott calls the Legislature back for a special session so that it will do its job and act on this injustice.
