Florida Democrats' New TV Ad: Annette Taddeo Will Fight Trumpcare
In a new TV ad, Annette Taddeo stands up for the middle class and pledges to lower healthcare costs

 
Miami, FL - Jose Felix Diaz has been with Trump on healthcare policy every step of the way. In 2012 he voted for a resolution urging the repeal of Obamacare, and even visited Marco Rubio in D.C. this year to support the passage of Trumpcare. 

 

 ​In a new television ad released in English and Spanish, Florida Democrats take Jose Felix Diaz and Donald Trump to task for supporting reckless policies that would kick millions of Americans off their healthcare, raise premiums, impose an unfair age tax, reduce coverage for Americans with preexisting conditions, and slash medicare.​

"Jose Felix and Donald Trump are advocating for a healthcare policy that will raise healthcare costs and kick millions of Americans off their insurance. Plain and simple, electing more Trump Republicans like Jose Felix Diaz will devastate South Florida's middle-class. We can't afford politicians like Jose Felix Diaz who want to make healthcare more expensive for our families just to give the wealthiest 1% another tax break. Annette Taddeo is a working mom who will fight to lower healthcare costs and stand up for working families--healthcare is an important issue for every family in Miami-Dade and this ad makes each candidates' stance on the issue clear." said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Johanna Cervone.
