Diaz-Balart: The American People Deserve a Better Healthcare System

Jan 13, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after the House passed a budget resolution which would begin the process of repealing and replacing Obamacare.

"Today, House Republicans passed what is just the first step in replacing our flawed and broken healthcare system. It has negatively affected families across the country, and I refuse to accept this status quo. Premiums and deductibles have skyrocketed, coverage options have significantly decreased, and many insurance providers have left the exchanges. 70% of the original state exchanges have collapsed completely. Rest assured that I and my Republican colleagues will not allow the healthcare market to continue to crumble.

"Americans deserve to see the doctors they choose at a price they can afford. I will continue to work with my colleagues and the incoming administration to make coverage affordable, flexible, and patient-centered."
