23 Oct Scott for Florida Releases New Ad “It’s Personal”
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Rick Scott for Florida campaign rolled out a new television and digital ad, “It’s Personal,” which highlights Governor Scott’s personal story of growing up in a family that struggled to get healthcare, especially for his brother with a pre-existing health condition. Governor Scott’s experience helped shape his support for forcing insurance companies to cover individuals with pre-existing conditions, and is why he has long believed this requirement should be a key component of any healthcare reform.
Watch the ad above and see the full script here:
Gov. Scott: “I want to tell you about a family with a pre-existing health condition.
“They grew up in public housing, rarely saw a doctor. One of the kids had a hip disease.
“Their mom would drive 200 miles to a charity hospital to get him treatment.
“That was my family growing up.
“I support forcing insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions.
“For Senator Nelson, it’s just another political issue.
“But for me, it’s personal.
“I’m Rick Scott and I approve this message.”
