Florida Senate seeking public's health care views
The Florida Senate is providing a page on its website so citizens can get information on the federal health care overhaul and express their views on the subject.
Senate leaders announced the creation of the page on Monday.
Tea party and religious activists flooded the room when a select committee on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act met for the first time last week. They denounced the law as unconstitutional although it's been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The state is facing a key decision on whether to expand its Medicaid program with the federal government picking up nearly all of the cost.
Florida also must decide whether it'll set up a health exchange to help consumers get insurance or let the federal government do it.
