 FL Dems Statement on House Panel Vote Rejecting Medicaid Expansion

House GOP Puts Politics Before Floridian’s Health, Makes Mockery of Gov. Scott

 

Tallahassee, FL – The Florida Democratic Party today released to following statement in response to the House select committee’s rejection of Medicaid expansion. 

 

STATEMENT FROM FL DEMS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SCOTT ARCENEAUX:

 

“Today, in a display of Gov. Rick Scott's complete failure to lead his own party, House Republicans voted against expanding Medicaid to nearly a million Floridians. Despite broad public support the House GOP put politics before the well-being of Floridians. This partisan foot-dragging at the expense of Florida’s most vulnerable is as egregious as it is wrong. Floridians have spoken and the cost of doing nothing is too high.”
