Democrats believe affordable, high quality health care is part of the American promise, that everyone should have the security that comes with good health care, and that no one should go broke because they get sick. Florida Democrats stand ready to protect the landmark reforms that are already helping millions of Floridians.

Democrats are also educating the public about the health care law and are giving small businesses the help they need to benefit from it. However, rather than help the public, Rick Scott and the Republicans are spreading misinformation to prevent people from understanding the law, or out-and-out denying people information they need to make decisions.
