Florida Democrats Release Digital Ad on One-Year Anniversary of Trumpcare Vote

Ad Targets Republican House Members who voted to repeal the ACA

Today marks the one-year anniversary that Republican House members voted to take away healthcare from millions of people. To mark the anniversary of this disastrous vote, the Florida Democratic Party released a digital-ad targeting those Republican House members.


Florida Republicans have long pushed to repeal the individual mandate of the ACA, which Trump’s former HHS Secretary says will result in higher health care costs. Just this week, a new report revealed Florida ranks 48 out of 50 for its state healthcare system, and a main reason for that is because Rick Scott refused to expand Medicaid under the ACA.

FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement on the anniversary of the Trumpcare vote:

“Today we are reminded that all Florida Republican House members voted to take away healthcare from millions of Americans – including Gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis. The steps Republicans have taken to dismantle the Affordable Care Act have already had harsh effects on hard working Florida families.

“We are also reminded of the Democratic leaders who fought to protect the Affordable Care Act, like Senator Bill Nelson and all of our Democratic House Members. We will be reminding voters every day until November of who voted to take away their healthcare, who is fighting to protect it, and what is at stake in the 2018 elections.”
