“Florida’s economy is growing and this year we have over a $1 billion budget surplus. The Senate’s plan to expand Medicaid under Obamacare will cost Florida taxpayers $5 billion over 10 years. A budget that keeps Florida’s economy growing will cut taxes and give Floridians back more of the money they earn, not inevitably raise taxes in order to implement Obamacare and grow government. We continue to ask HHS for their response to my May 12th letter inquiring about our ability to increase healthcare access at no cost to state taxpayers.”
