House GOP Turns Backs on Florida Families, Goes Home Instead of Expanding Access to Health Care

Posted

Moments ago, the Florida House decided that denying health care to 800,000 working Floridians was more important than doing their jobs.

In response, FDP Chair Allison Tant made the following statement:

“House Republicans have given up on Florida’s families, and put partisan point-scoring ahead of doing what’s right for the people who elected them. The House GOP’s obsession with denying working Floridians health care no matter the cost is too high a price for Floridians to pay. The House GOP was so unwilling to even discuss expanding access to health care, they have now abandoned priorities essential to all Floridians, from environmental protections to expanding the right to vote and helping kids with special needs.

“Only House Republicans would give themselves a vacation after denying 800,000 working Floridians access to health care. Floridians deserve better."
