Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics
Winner of the week
NASA. The preliminary budget offered by President Donald Trump looks like a bloodbath for most federally funded scientific research — from the National Institutes of Health to climate change initiatives — but overall, NASA saw a mere 1 percent funding cut. NASA's Earth science and education programs would be cut, but the Mars Rover is still a go.
Loser of the week
Older Floridians. More than 450,000 Floridians ages 50 to 64 would see premiums rise under the GOP proposal to replace Obamacare, according to AARP. The advocacy group says Florida would be "ground zero" for consumers negatively affected by the proposed American Health Care Act.
