The May 4 article, Failed Medicaid deal may cost Florida firms, confirms that illogical and irrational thinking is alive and well in Tallahassee. A blind, partisan mentality by Republicans in the Legislature has resulted in rejecting Medicaid expansion. This will mean that some 1 million Floridians will go without health insurance, resulting in suffering and probably the death of many, and will continue to burden local taxpayers who support public emergency rooms.
We all should be embarrassed by the inaction of our legislature.
Paul C. Hunt, South Miami
