All statements involving Will Weatherford

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.

"One out of every three students currently today is ready for college before they go there."

New school testing standards "will consume approximately twenty days of testing for elementary, middle and high school students."

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

"The average student in Florida, what they actually pay out of pocket at our major universities" for tuition is as much or less than what they spend on cellphones.

"Almost 1,000 people a day" are moving to Florida "because they are more free here than they are in some other states."

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

The Legislature needs to spend $500 million to "shore up" the pension fund this year and the next 28 years to keep it "afloat."

Florida has "the second-lowest (campaign) contribution limit in the entire country."

"It's the first time in the nation this many members have been drawn (by a Legislature) into the same districts where it wasn't a court order."

"Let’s say (Republicans) take away half of our delegates. They’re worth more than Iowa’s, New Hampshire’s and almost South Carolina’s combined."

"There is no $30 million pot of money" for redistricting issues, including defending redistricting lawsuits. "Your tax dollars are not being spent on anything like that."
