On June 1, as the special session was getting under way, I made five predictions about how the session
would turn out.
Here’s how those predictions turned out:
Each chamber will “entertain”
some legislative proposals put forward by the other chamber in the same manner
that a cat “entertains” a captive lizard (this is Florida, after all). They
won’t be treated as DOA, but they will be just as dead when the entertaining is
Well, the House entertained the Senate’s FHIX, which was
NOT, I repeat, NOT Medicaid expansion (to paraphrase various state senators).
The House called it Medicaid expansion and, after having some rhetorical fun at
the Senate’s expense, they killed it.
