Florida has over 4 million uninsured and almost one quarter of those are children. Over the last decade, the average premium of Florida families increased by 88%, and the average annual family premiums for workers at small firms increased by 123%.
Floridians already pay a hidden tax of $1400/year on premiums to cover the cost of the uninsured. On top of all of this, Florida has rejected over $50 million in our tax payer money that would help a lot of families. Florida does not have money to burn. Please sign the petition telling Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature as much.
