Dear Editor
I urge your readers to please sign and send the petition to Florida’s governor—demanding they put health care ahead of politics by accepting the ACA’s Medicaid expansion.The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expands Medicaid to millions of low-income Americans, but 25 states—including Florida—have rejected it, because Republicans hate Obamacare.

In other words, states are rejecting free money from the feds—purely out of political spite.

That would be funny, if the effects were not so serious. A new Harvard study finds that this will result in eight million uninsured Americans—and 17,000 avoidable and preventable deaths.

Sign and send the petition to your governor—demanding that Florida put the health care of its residents above politics, and accept the ACA’s Medicaid expansion.

Keep fighting,
Paul Hogarth, Daily Kos
