Sabotage afoot in Capitol

Sabotage afoot in Capitol | Progress in Florida | Scoop.it
Once again, extremists in the Florida Legislature quietly are trying to sabotage the new federal health care law.
Marianne Castiglia's insight:

GOP continues to obstruct the money we NEED to help Floridians with health care costs.  I am baffled and frustrated that so many people in our state are clueless and will continue to support these politicians who are voting in the interest of their big money donors and not in the interest of their constituents.  We need to get money out of politics. I read that there are now 14 states who have passed measures to counter that terrible supreme court decision of Citizens United. Is there any chance of Florida doing the same?
