Floridians threatened with Trumpcare again

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 9:40am

Republicans in the US Senate have given their health care plan a different name “Graham-Cassidy”, but it’s almost entirely the same old, disastrous, morally reprehensible health care bill that was defeated by one vote in July. It’s on a fast track for a vote and your voice is needed right now.

The next health care battle: Florida’s kids

Thu, 08/10/2017 - 7:01pm

You’d think funding health coverage for millions of children would be at the top of the list for our elected representatives. Think again. If President Trump gets his way in Congress, children's’ health care is on the chopping block.

Sen. Nelson deserves our thanks

Wed, 07/19/2017 - 9:31am

We get it: it’s easy to be cynical about politics and government these days. That’s why when one of our elected officials is fighting the good fight, often thanklessly, we want to lift that person up.
