House Plan 'Morally and Financially Indefensible'

The Tampa Bay Times said in an editorial Thursday that the House health plan being rammed through by Republican leaders -- Speaker Will Weatherford and Rep. Richard Corcoran -- is both dumb and cruel. It rejects billions of federal dollars and adds to state taxpayers' financial burden, while ostensibly offering coverage that is nothing but an illusion.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
