Florida Medicaid Expansion

To be delivered to The Florida State House and Governor Rick Scott

Petition Statement

Tell Florida legislators to reverse their decision and accept $51 billion in Federal Funding for Medicaid Expansion. If the Republican legislators truly believe in a “safety net” as they allege, then they must vote “Yes” for Medicaid expansion.
There are currently 25,227 signatures. NEW goal - We need 30,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Florida's Legislature rejected Medicaid expansion and the accompanying 51 billion federal dollars that would have provided healthcare to nearly 1 million Floridians. Several studies provide estimates that the Medicaid expansion would add more than $2 billion to the Florida economy annually and add over 55,000 new private sector jobs. Leaving 100% of the federal funding on the table to be sent to other states is a mis-representation of the citizens of Florida whose tax dollars will be sent to other states.
