Statements about Medicaid

"Expanding Medicaid would create 63k jobs."

41,200 veterans in Florida "don’t have health care because Scott didn’t expand Medicaid."

About half the people who would qualify for Medicaid expansion in Florida "can buy a health care plan for $30 a month" on the federal health care exchange.

Says Rick Scott "oversaw the largest Medicare fraud in the nation’s history."

On expanding Medicaid as part of the health care law

"Six people in Florida die as a result of (not expanding Medicaid) every day."

"Expanding Medicaid would require borrowing more money, drastically expanding our deficit."

Eighty-five percent of Floridians who will benefit from expanding Medicaid are "single, childless adults."  

Florida is "second in the nation in the uninsured."

"For the first time in eight years, our budget also increases funding for persons with disabilities by $36 million to help more disabled people receive community-based services."

The Medicaid expansion is "going to cost Florida $1.9 billion a year."
