Republican leaders have been trying to reverse the benefits of the Affordable Care Act during
the entirety of Donald Trump’s term as President. Florida is currently one of the states behind a
lawsuit to gut the Affordable Care Act, and is one of only 14 states to refuse free money from
the Federal Government to expand Medicaid in the state. Floridians need access to healthcare,
now more than ever. Residents who have pre-existing conditions should not be denied
coverage. Florida lawmakers, including my opponent, also constantly try to undermine
women’s reproductive rights.
I support protecting the benefits of the Affordable Care Act including the expansion of Medicaid
in Florida. Every credible survey has shown that Medicaid expansion benefits those who obtain
coverage and the states themselves. I support ensuring access to substance abuse and mental
health services for all Floridians. I support every woman’s right to access affordable, nigh-
quality reproductive health care including abortion services and birth control. I support
comprehensive sex education in schools to help prevent unintended pregnancies.
