Only your call will make this happen!

By Margaret Mead 

The House still refuses to consider legislation that would extend affordable healthcare to Florida’s working poor. During the 2015 Legislative Session, the Florida Senate passed its budget proposal on a strong bi partisan vote, which would secure health care coverage for low-income, working Floridians

The Florida House of Representatives took no action on these issues, filed no proposal of its own and adjourned early, leaving the budget unresolved.

The conversation on health care coverage is imperative for Floridians. Our state currently has one of the highest rates (25 percent) of uninsured people in the nation, with Florida ranking 50th in uninsured.

Legislators are back in their districts until Special Session begins on June 1 to resolve the budget. Now is the time to let your voices be heard!

CALL your House Representative TODAY. If possible, SCHEDULE an appointment to meet with them in their district offices ASAP before they return to Tallahassee!

Tell them to take back Florida’s money; it is the fiscally responsible thing to do, and the best for Florida.

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
