Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement after introducing the Free Market Healthcare Restoration and Coverage Act of 2015.

"With the King v. Burwell ruling quickly approaching, I introduced legislation that would allow my constituents and Americans across the country to keep their premiums while House Republicans work on a real and permanent solution. I strongly believe that our constituents should not suffer the negative consequences of the poor decisions made by Congressional Democrats and President Obama. This bill will extend current subsidies until 2017, keeping premiums at the current rate. It also repeals Obamacare in May 2017, allowing the next President to work in a bipartisan fashion with Congress. I am committed to continue working with my colleagues in order to get this done. Americans deserve access to the care they need, from the doctors they choose, at a price they can afford."
