The Florida House and Senate have been going back and forth over whether or not the state should accept billions of federal dollars to expand Medicaid in the state.  The Senate wants take the money and steer it into private plans.  The House want no part of it.  In fact, House Speaker Steve Crisafulli suggests that the public is against the idea.

Crisafulli said, "Medicaid expansion isn’t necessarily a very popular issue on the street."

We spoke with Josh Gillin of Politifact for the ruling.
