This is still totally unacceptable. I like how florida cut our list in half by reducing financial eligibility for the program by 50 percent. I am so ashamed to be a citizen of this supposed advanced nation and pathetic state of Florida. our government will let our own citizens be denied life saving medications, provide funding for the same medications to Africa AND grant the drug companies tax breaks on record profits! Where is my patriotism? I just told ya; in the toilet like where our country is going!
