Florida Medicaid Expansion

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.

Why is this important?

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.
