Republican Sen. Rene Garcia and Democrat Rep. Jose Javier Rodriguez hosted a bipartisan forum on healthcare expansion in Florida, including valuable information about the insurance marketplace opening up beginning Oct. 1.
The Aug. 22 forum was packed with constituents, including several from Jackson, and Garcia expressed his opinion that it was irresponsible for Florida lawmakers to refuse to take the more than $50 billion the federal government has allocated for healthcare expansion. Kudos to him for speaking his mind and for keeping an open dialogue with Florida residents and healthcare advocates.
