Mario Diaz-Balart Plays Guessing Games with Floridians’ Healthcare Coverage 

Today, South Florida Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart was quoted saying the following about his vote on Trumpcare: "At this stage, I want to keep you guys guessing."

FDP spokesperson Johanna Cervone issued the following statement in response:

“It's shameful that Mario Diaz-Balart thinks it's acceptable to play guessing games with the lives of millions of Americans. 7.8 million Floridians don't know if their coverage will be in jeopardy when they wake up tomorrow. We shouldn't have to guess if Mario Diaz-Balart stands with Florida families or Donald Trump.”

While Mario Diaz-Balart plays guessing games about critical healthcare coverage for millions of Americans, Trumpcare puts lives at risk:
