DESPITE REPUBLICAN SABOTAGE OF THE U.S. HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, SUPPORT FOR MEDICARE REMAINS STRONG ON ITS 53RD ANNIVERSARY

West Palm Beach — Grassroots advocacy organization Floridians for a Fair Shake lauds the 53rd anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, which have provided a lifeline of health care to Americans. While Republicans like Congressmen Vern Buchanan and Brian Mast support sabotage and weakening our health care, Americans support a secure Medicare and Medicaid as a key component of our health care network. Repeated attempts to take away health care from working families make today’s Medicare and Medicaid anniversary even more notable. Floridians for a Fair Shake communications director Stephen Gaskill issued the following statement:

“Despite the ongoing, years-long attempts of Congressional Republicans and President Trump to weaken and sabotage our health care system, support for Medicare and Medicaid remains strong on their 53rd anniversary. Millions of working families have access to quality, affordable health care because of Medicare and Medicaid, and it’s unconscionable to think of chopping or eliminating these lifesaving programs.”
