  • Wasserman Schultz Statement on the Trump Budget
    Posted in Press Releases on March 16, 2017 | Preview rr

    The Trump budget is an immoral affront to nearly all of our most important priorities: Seniors, children and families and the most important gift we can leave to future generations -- a clean and healthy environment. Aside from the horrific health care cuts that will push tens of millions of people into higher-cost plans, or no coverage at all, this budget proposal sacrifices too many safety, environmental, labor and health protections, all just to ultimately deliver grotesque tax breaks to the wealthy.

  • Wasserman Schultz Statement on CBO Analysis of Trumpcare
    Posted in Press Releases on March 13, 2017 | Preview rr

    Yanking insurance coverage from 14 million people and leaving them uninsured next year would be ruthless and cruel. But that's exactly what the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates will happen if Republicans are allowed to ram their Trumpcare legislation through Congress. The longer-term projections are even grimmer, with as many as 24 million people projected to lose coverage by 2026. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz Honors Women's History Month
    Posted in Press Releases on March 10, 2017 | Preview rr

    Each March, we honor and remember all of the remarkable women who came before us. The women who worked to make this world a better place – more just, more fair, and more kind. Many decades ago, there was no one who came before them to show the way. They had to be the ones to decide how to shatter the glass ceilings and make it possible for the women who came after them to follow suit and break even more new ground. One of these women who paved the way for future generations is Dr. Sheila L. Chamberlain, a constituent of mine from Hollywood Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz on Republican's Health Plan
    Posted in Press Releases on March 7, 2017 | Preview rr

    The Republican repeal plan unveiled last night assaults nearly every segment of America who relies on health care. It would mean less coverage and higher costs for millions of working families, while older Americans would face significantly higher prescription drug costs. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz Statement On Anti-Semitism Envoy
    Posted in Press Releases on March 6, 2017 | Preview rr

    How is anyone supposed to believe that President Trump truly cares about the rise in anti-Semitism? Every week brings new and shocking indifference coming directly from the White House. I am appalled by reports that the Trump White House is considering eliminating the office of the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism and the Ambassador-level position that leads it. There's a dangerous wave of anti-Semitism rising in this country and around the world, and choosing now – of all times – to stop monitoring such incidents around the globe is deeply troubling.

  • Wasserman Schultz on Rankin Anniversary, Women's History Month
    Posted in Press Releases on March 3, 2017 | Preview rr

    It was 100 years ago Saturday that Jeannette Rankin took her seat as the first woman elected to Congress, breaking up the ultimate all-male power club. Surviving unwelcoming workplaces is something Rankin and countless other women have endured, and sadly, many still do today. And while women have always worked, it's too often been in situations where they were underpaid, undervalued or not paid at all. As we celebrate Women's History Month, it's important to acknowledge the low wages, poor working conditions and limited opportunities so many generations of women endured. But during this month we can also celebrate the fearless civic, labor and business innovators who knocked those barriers down for all the sisters and daughters who followed them. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz Statement on Sessions
    Posted in Press Releases on March 2, 2017 | Preview rr

    America's top law enforcement official can't perjure himself before the United States Senate and maintain the credibility and confidence that the chief law enforcement officer for the nation must have to hold that position. He must now resign. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz Statement on Trump Budget
    Posted in Press Releases on February 27, 2017 | Preview rr

    America needs a forward-looking, investment budget that will focus on job creation and investing in our future, not one that recklessly abandons the millions of workers, students and seniors who still struggle to make ends meet. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz on Trump's Mass Deportation Plan
    Posted in Press Releases on February 22, 2017 | Preview rr

    President Trump's mass deportation plan is cruel, costly and dangerous, and it undermines America's long-held values of due process and welcoming immigrants to our shores. The human toll will be immeasurable. It will tear apart families, and incite panic as untold numbers of our friends, co-workers and neighbors will now be frightened just to go to work, school or the hospital. Many more will now avoid police, even if they're victims of a crime. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz Statement on David Friedman
    Posted in Press Releases on February 22, 2017 | Preview rr

    If the United States truly seeks a lasting peace in the Middle East, President Trump's choice to be our country's next envoy to Israel is the wrong man. David Friedman will bring only a lengthy record of conflict and provocation to the job. Read more
