When you start with rhetoric and work backwards toward the facts (only the ones that support your rhetoric), strange things happen. All of our republican representatives want to give us a new TAX. Our elected officials: Matt Caldwell, Dane Eagle, Heather Fitzenhagen, Ray Rodrigues and, Matt Hudson voted last week to turn down the tax dollars we already paid for covering uninsured and moved forward their own law to spend new tax dollars on a program that does not cover 90% of the uninsured. We will either pay a new tax or have to cut spending on critical state programs to pay for this. We will pay a third time for their program when all of those uninsured show up at the emergency rooms and our insurance rates go up to pay for them. The alternative that they voted down was NOT Medicaid expansion. It was a republican sponsored package to expand private insurance to the uninsured that was already paid for by our federal taxes. Now we will have to pay again and lose jobs in Lee county.
