The Florida Democratic party has developed its own budget for this year you can see it here https://www.floridadems.org/newsunshinedeal
Medicaid Expansion - When the Supreme Court made the expansion optional Florida chose not to do it. As a result Florida has lost around 66 Billion dollars in federal funding. It is also believed that about 2,000 people a year in Florida die because they fall in the gap and can't afford health insurance. There are about 800,000 people who make too much ( or don't qualify for other reasons) for medicaid , but too little to get subsidies from the ACA (Obamacare).
Since the legislators and the Governor have not moved on this, it has been decided to try to implement it by constitutional petition.
Below are the links to the petition and to a facts sheet. If you choose to print it, print the petition on one sheet front and back. If you wish to have one or many sent to you email
