According to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Florida likely suffered the second-highest total of deaths in that time period — 2,776 — attributed to not expanding Medicaid, trailing only Texas.
Of course this so-called governor who committed the worst medicare fraud in the history of this country, would not care who he destroys.

It was all pointless Grandstanding by Scott. His political ambitions caused him to block federal funds for high speed rail and expanded medicaid. He also led to our current climate crisis of red tide. He chose party over the needs of his state.

People with taxpayer funded healthcare, voting against taxpayers that cannot afford insurance. Florida!
Scott never cared about people, just his own class.

Once again, I think teachers should be considered “ first responders”. This has happened time and time again and I am tired of it. Teachers have sheltered their beloved students from shooters . They have had to teach the little people safety, and they have had to comfort all children after an incident. This is all due to careless votes by elected officials who refuse to give in to NRA. so with that, I say, give teachers all rights and benefits as “ first responders”!
NRA is responsible, shame on our do nothing legislators !
