Diaz-Balart: Florida Taxpayers Cannot Afford ObamaCare


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement in response to the recent meeting Governor Rick Scott had with Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius regarding the Medicaid exchange program in ObamaCare.

"I applaud Governor Scott and his commitment to improving the cost, quality, and access to health care for all Floridians. ObamaCare will increase spending and taxes, and raise the cost of health care, while reducing the quality of care our citizens will receive. It includes twenty new or higher tax increases, five of which went into effect on January 1st, with a projected cost of $1 trillion to American taxpayers in the next decade. A recent study conducted by Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration demonstrated that ObamaCare's Medicaid expansion would cost taxpayers an additional $63.4 billion over 10 years. Our taxpayers simply cannot afford this costly program. We need to protect Floridians' access to the care they need, from the doctors they choose, at a price they can afford."
