Trump Sends Azar to Peddle More Broken Promises on Health Care to Floridians
In response to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar’s visit to Tallahassee with Governor Ron DeSantis today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement:
"Secretary Azar’s visit to Tallahassee today is a smoke and mirrors attempt to cover up Trump’s endless broken promises on health care. Trump and Azar have put corporate profits over the health of Floridians time and time again: they’ve tried to cut medicare funding, put millions of Floridians with preexisting conditions at risk, worked to repeal the Affordable Care Act and opposed H.R.3, which would allow the government to negotiate lower drug prices -- all while lavishing drug companies with billions in tax breaks," said Chair Rizzo, "Today, the Trump Administration is putting on a show to hawk another empty promise to Floridians, but all shows must come to an end. Floridians will remember Trump’s attacks on their health care at the ballot box this November."
