UPDATED ADVISORY: FAIR SHAKE CAMPAIGN HAS A JULY 4 MESSAGE FOR CONGRESSMEN BUCHANAN AND MAST

Plane Banners and Chalk Art will Bring the Message to Beachgoers and Congressmen Brian Mast and Vern Buchanan

WEST PALM BEACH — Grassroots advocacy organization Floridians for a Fair Shake is delivering the Independence Day health care message with two distinct plane banners for beachgoers and Congressmen Brian Mast and Vern Buchanan this 4th of July.

The message for the Treasure Coast reads “Brian Mast(er) of Health Care Sabotage,” underscoring his votes to repeal health care and return to exclusions for pre-existing conditions.

The message for the Suncoast reads “Health Care = Freedom, Tell Vern Buchanan 941-951-6643.” Like Mast, Buchanan also voted to repeal health care and return to exclusions for pre-existing conditions. In addition to the Suncoast plane banner, chalk art on North Lido Beach and the Village in Downtown Siesta Key will highlight Buchanan’s devastating votes on health care for beachgoers.

Updated details (new times due to weather and locations) are below. Next year, premiums are predicted to rise 16.9%, increasing the cost of the average Floridian family’s health care by $1,011. Last week, health care insurer Cigna requested a 31% rate hike for Floridians for 2019.
