Florida House Republicans hurt everyone in the state by rejecting the billions of dollars that go along with expanding Medicaid. Hyperpartisan politicians such as House Speaker Will Weatherford apparently were the only ones who couldn’t see this, because business groups, the Florida Senate, Gov. Rick Scott and countless community groups support the program.
Scott needs to call lawmakers back so that they can open their eyes and minds, if not their hearts, to serve the state’s economy and entire electorate.
