The 2015 Florida legislative session came screeching to a halt three days early, when House and Senate lawmakers could not agree on health care funding.
The House wants no part of Medicaid expansion. The Senate has warmed up to the idea of a type of expansion that would steer federal dollars into private healthcare plans. They'll try to get this worked out during a special session that’s scheduled to begin Monday, June 1.
One of the arguments against Medicaid expansion is that Florida takes billions more from Washington, D.C. than it gives - and that the money being offered to Florida isn't Florida's to take.
