In what can only be attributed to party-politics, Republicans in the Florida House have been holding up Medicaid expansion and more than $50 billion in federal funding for the 800,000 uninsured in our state. With much more suddenly at stake, Republicans in the Florida Senate (which passed expansion 39-1 in 2013) will have to do more to ensure that their party members in the house see the light.

Many who witnessed last Tuesday's BOCC meeting can honestly say that they didn't feel the love. What one might have detected from the commission was instead their willingness to stereotype and trivialize those with opposing views, and belittle and insult anyone who challenges their actions.

Hollywood has come up with a new blockbuster entitled American Sniper. It has broken box office records, and not just for the blood and guts theme it might suggest.
