Statement in Response to Today’s Court Decision to Strike Amendment #9

“We are extremely pleased with Judge Shelfer’s decision to strike this politically motivated and confusing amendment from the ballot. The courts appear to be doing an excellent job of protecting the interest of voters this election season.”

“Florida PIRG repeatedly testified against Amendment #9 in the legislature because it is a blatant attempt by state lawmakers to prevent implementation of the new national health care reform legislation.”

"The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act" has numerous requirements to reform practices of private health insurance companies such as requiring insurers to cover those with pre-existing conditions or to no longer drop people when they get sick. It also contains provisions to lower health care costs, improve the quality of health care services, and improve the Medicare program.”

Defend the CFPB

Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
