Sign the petition: Tell Florida Republicans to stop endangering the health of 730,000 residents, start complying with federal laws and accept the Medicaid expansion

To be delivered to Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the GOP state legislature

Petition Statement

Beyond refusing the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, Florida is now in danger of losing its current Medicaid funds because it wants a cap on emergency room visits.

Enough is enough. Time to stop putting politics above health care, accept the Medicaid expansion and comply with federal regulations.
There are currently 13,101 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Florida isn't just turning away Medicaid expansion money—now they're jeopardizing *existing* funding.

The state is trying to cap the number of emergency room visits for Medicaid patients, in defiance of federal law. As a result, the feds are threatening to pull their funding.

Florida is already one of two dozen states where Republican politicians hate Obamacare so much that they refused the Medicaid expansion provided by the Affordable Care Act.

Which means that 730,000 low-income Floridians who qualify for Medicaid don’t have health insurance.

Sign the petition to Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the GOP legislature to stop the political tantrum on Obamacare. Accept the Medicaid expansion, and comply with federal law.
