Brian Mast (R-FL) is a veteran and a double amputee and he completely ripped apart the Democrats on the House floor on Thursday. He did it because of all their false statements about the Republican health care bill.
Watch him call out their lies.
Brian Mast: “I too am a person with preexisting conditions and I believe it’s not something I should just do but a responsibility for me to be the staunchest advocate for people out there who have preexisting conditions.”
“And that is why I’m such an ardent supporter of this bill. I think every American and every person out there with preexisting conditions should be asking themselves, how is it that they have coverage if every single insurance provider has pulled out of the market? If there’s no entity to go out there and provide insurance, how is it that preexisting conditions could possibly be covered?!”
Brian Mast then ripped the lying Democrats apart: “It is the exact same group of people that went out there and lied to the face of every single American telling them that if they like their plan they would keep their plan, if they liked their doctor, they could keep their doctor…that the average American would save $2,500 a year on their health care insurance.”
“That was a bold-faced lie!”
Brian Mast served in the US army and was an explosive disposal technician and suffered from stepping on IED as he was serving in Afghanistan. He lost both of his legs and one of his fingers.
