Subject: Will Florida's families lose?
Florida legislators are deciding right now whether our state will accept critical federal funds which would provide health care to a million Florida families who need coverage. Yet Gov. Rick Scott and some lawmakers want to block this money, leaving Florida to continue struggling to care for the uninsured.
Join me and sign the petition to urge the Legislature to expand health care by accepting federal funds to build a better health care system:
We can't allow Florida to lose out on billions of dollars already set aside to expand health care coverage to all low-income working people in our state.
Additionally, this new funding amounts to an economic boost for the state. With the federal government fully funding the cost of new health care recipients for three years and then covering 90 percent or more of the cost each year after, we can expect to see a resulting expansion of health care jobs in the state.
Join me in advocating for this common sense measure for our legislators to adopt:
Thanks for your help on this critical issue for Florida's families.
