Rick Scott’s latest outrage-Letter to Editor

Uninsured Florida children are needlessly suffering

Obamacare makes it possible for working Floridians who do not have employer-provided health care to acquire affordable health insurance.

But Governor Rick Scott continues to block available federal funding for working Floridians without insurance. Each of us knows someone who is struggling with this devastating problem. It is up to us to stop Gov. Scott from withholding health care from those who need it most.

That’s why I created a petition on SignOn.org to Florida’s governor, Rick Scott, which says:

Governor Rick Scott: Stop blocking federal funds to cover the working uninsured through Obamacare. Currently our state ranks 49th out of 50 for the highest percentage of working people without health insurance. That’s disgraceful. We won’t rest until you have heard the voice of the people affected by your stubborn refusal to help the citizens of Florida. You know there are millions of struggling and suffering Floridians. Do you care?Tell Florida Governor Rick Scott: Stop blocking federal funds to cover the working uninsured through Obamacare!

"Create a citizens” recall process

Rick Kriseman Representative Florida law currently allows for the recall of local elected officials, but there is no provision to allow for the recall of state officials, unlike 18 other states. Engaged citizens deserve the tools to hold their public servants accountable without having to wait for the next election!

That’s why I introduced legislation to create a citizen recall process in Florida. And to show the widespread support our bill has, I created this petition to be delivered to the Florida State House, the Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott. The petition simply says:

"Create a citizens’ recall process for state elected officials in Florida by passing Rep. Rick Kriseman’s House Joint Resolution 785 and House Bill 787."
