Showdown brewing over FL healthcare plans
TALLAHASSEE -- They gathered in the speaker's office to pray and to read aloud the stories of poor, uninsured Floridians. They wanted someone to listen, they wanted House Speaker Will Weatherford to listen, to hear who would benefit if Weatherford and others simply said yes to $51 billion in federal health care help. They promised to do it again — the 10-or-so of them — today, tomorrow and next week if need be. "This is the 100 percent speaking, not just the Tea Party," said Wilson Barnes, a 72-year-old veteran and Tallahassee resident. "And I want our speaker ... to listen to our word, to listen to the word of God, and let's look out for all 100 percent of Floridians."
