The National Federation of Independent Business/Florida (NFIB) in late April
launched a new campaign highlighting small business owners’ opposition
to expanding Medicaid in Florida.

“Small business owners are important stakeholders in this fight, not
just as taxpayers, but as major contributors to Florida’s economy,”
NFIB/Florida Executive Director Bill Herrle said. “Expanding Medicaid
will deal a substantial blow to our state’s economy. Small business
owners are the engine of our economy. They’ve spent their lives growing
their businesses, creating jobs and giving back to our communities, and
expanding a budget-busting Medicaid program will no doubt jeopardize
this progress.”

The ads, which will aired on Florida cable TV, applaud
the House of Representatives for standing up to the Obama
administration and standing up for small business.

“As a lead
plaintiff in the lawsuit against Obamacare, NFIB v Sebelius, NFIB has
been instrumental in fighting for small business owners against the
overreach of Washington bureaucrats,” Herrle said. “In their decision,
the US Supreme Court ruled that the federal government could not force
states to expand Medicaid, yet that’s exactly what’s happening in
Florida and it’s happening at the expense of small business owners and
our economy.”
