On February 16 – 17, 2018, community leaders from across Florida will assemble at the Airport Embassy Suites in West Palm Beach to chart the course for Universal Health Care in Florida.
NOW for Floridians to act because we have seen our elected leaders in Tallahassee reject over $18 billion over 10 years to provide health care to over one million Floridians living poverty. We have seen our leaders refuse to set up a health care exchange to provide access to affordable health care under the Affordable Health Care Act. We have seen those leaders claim to be cutting taxes while raising the state employees contributions to their pension fund while at the same time cutting benefits for those same employees. But those Tallahassee politicians found plenty of money to give their wealthy campaign contributors huge tax cuts.
It is time for a program that works for all Floridians, not just the wealthy and powerful. It is time to ENABLE BETTER TOGETHER.
