Editorial boards at the Tampa Bay Times and The Tampa Tribune don't agree on much beyond motherhood and apple pie, with the Times leaning left and Trib leaning right. But there’s one thing they do agree on: Florida should take the money.
The money in question is the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid-expansion funds. There is enough money sitting in Washington for Florida to cover the entire cost of covering nearly 1 million uninsured poor people through 2016 and at least 90 percent thereafter. It amounts to billions of dollars a year.
