Florida education officials canceled state exams earlier this year as public schools shifted abruptly online at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Former Gov. Jeb Bush doesn’t want to see that happen again.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said he would scrap the national health insurance law known as Obamacare.

Bush outlined his plan to replace it during a speech in New Hampshire Tuesday.

Bush wants a system that protects people from worst-case scenarios rather than comprehensive coverage that includes services they may not want. He said insurance shouldn’t cover everything.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is proposing to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's health care law with one that would increase tax credits for individuals, allowing them to buy coverage protection against "high-cost medical events."

The largest individual donor to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's Right to Rise Super PAC is South Florida health care entrepreneur Miguel "Mike" Fernandez, who donated $3 million. Separately, more than two dozen other companies with Florida addresses have contributed $100,000 or more to Right to Rise, records show.

The largest Florida corporate donor to a super political action committee backing Bush's presidential run is NextEra Energy Inc., the company that owns electric utility giant Florida Power & Light.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is now serving as an adviser for Jackson Healthcare, the Tampa Bay Times reports. The private healthcare staffing company is the third largest in the country.
