Obamacare Failure in Florida

“Healthcare costs are rising on everyday Floridians. This year’s premium hike of nearly 20 percent is a wake-up call to Hillary Clinton’s plans to double down on the failed experiment known as Obamacare.

That candidate is Donald Trump.” — Senior Trump Adviser and Florida Chief Strategist Susie Wiles
