Brickbats to Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford


Brickbats to Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, who was opposed to the expansion of Medicaid in Florida for 1 million uninsured citizens, even though his family benefitted when his 2-year-old brother was dying of cancer, putting his family under a mountain of debt. Weatherford said they were helped by the state’s Medicaid-funded Medically Needy program which provides assistance for those who earn too much to qualify for full Medicaid. Weatherford and his House colleagues rejected the Medicaid expansion but said they'll come up with a better alternative.
