Republican Health Care Bill Guts Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions and Makes You Pay More for Less Care
In response to the House of Representatives voting on the Governor Scott-approved toxic health care bill, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement. New analyses show the bill will protect just 5 percent of Americans with pre-existing conditions and also threatens “about half of the country” who receive employer provided coverage.
“Just like they self-serving Tallahassee politician that he is, Governor Scott bragged about his leading role in helping craft this toxic healthcare proposal – and now he owns this horrific Plan that strips coverage and spikes costs for Floridians. Scott has broken his promise to voters – his plan makes older Americans pay five times more for care, strips away coverage for pre-existing conditions and threatens vital drug abuse prevention and women’s healthcare services, all to give big insurance companies another handout. Floridians of every political persuasion are united in opposition to these proposals, and if Scott chooses to run for Senate he will be held accountable for his toxic healthcare agenda.”
