Via a press release, Florida’s Democratic Party, is once injecting itself into the national Obamacare debate by calling Republican gubernatorial candidate and current Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, nothing more than a “noteworthy political coward” for not taking a stand on the latest failed GOP efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
Actually, when the Democratic Governor’s Association first launched a social media attack against Commissioner Putnam last month, Team Putnam responded to the digital attack.
“Between a racially insensitive Party Chair and FBI investigations into one of their candidates, it’s no surprise the Democrats and liberal DGA are desperate to change the story. It hasn’t worked. Our campaign headquarters had exactly zero calls about their home cooked video attacking Adam Putnam’s conservative values.”
More interesting than the sharp verbal attack against Putnam is the state Democrats saying that the GOP again failed in passing “simple repeal of Obamacare.”
There is nothing “simple” about repealing any law, especially one that has been woven into the healthcare system for over six years, and one that Democrats agree needs fixing.
Here is the press release:
After several GOP defections, it appears the “Better Care Reconciliation Act” is dead for now.
Tensions reached a fever pitch after Republicans failed to pass a simple repeal of Obamacare after ‘repeal and replace’ failed.
So it’s back to the backroom drawing board for Senate Republicans.
Meanwhile, every Democratic candidate for governor has been vocal and engaged on the healthcare debate, but noteworthy political coward, Adam Putnam, has avoided taking a stance or even providing comment on repeal efforts that would have a hard-hitting impact in Florida.
Is Adam Putnam is too afraid to take a stand? Maybe after a few years have gone by, Adam will have picked a side in the healthcare debate. But for now, the GOP is working to take healthcare away from millions and increase premiums for working families. Luckily, Democrats are on the front lines fighting for a better, bipartisan solution to expand coverage and lower costs.” said FDP spokesperson Johanna Cervone.
