It is time for those supporting Obamacare to get on the offensive. The lives of Americans depend on it. How many more Charlene Dill stories of people dying because of politicians playing politics with their lives and healthcare is necessary? At this point, acquiescing to the status quo is no less morally reprehensible than the actions of those blocking the Medicaid expansion to Obamacare.
The Charlene Dill story along with countless others must be told. She did not have to die.
Today, Governor Rick Scott made the following statement wishing all Floridians a happy Easter celebration.
Governor Scott said, “Ann and I join every family throughout our state celebrating the Easter holiday this weekend. Across the state, Florida families honor the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This Easter, Ann and I will be spending time with our daughters, their husbands and our three grandsons. To me and my family, Easter has always been a reminder of the many blessings we have as Floridians and Americans.
“We will also pause and remember our brave men and women who are serving overseas and away from their families this holiday weekend. We thank them, and all of our service men and women, and veterans for their countless contributions to America. Ann and I will continue to pray for their safety and for their families, recognizing they are serving around the world and are unable to be with their loved ones for Easter. Because of their sacrifice, we are all able to enjoy this holiday peacefully in a free country.”

Months after a group seeking the pros and cons of incorporation for Lehigh Acres that met at Lehigh Senior High School. Its moderator, Alex Dworzanski, said that while the group has not formally met yet to elect an executive director or board, residents of Lehigh Acres are urged to expect a second meeting sometime June.
Dworzanski moderated the first meeting on March 1, a Saturday morning at Leigh Senior High School, where some 90 people turned out.
Dworzanski in a written said, We were not there to establish a group to push for incorporation. We have begun a discussion about the future of Lehigh Acres and where do we want to go.

Our group will look into what Lehigh Acres’ future should be.
