  • The Iran Nuclear Agreement Merits My Vote of Support
    Posted in Press Releases on September 6, 2015 | Preview rr

    This is the most difficult decision I have had to make in the nearly 23 years I have served in elected office, and this vote will be the most consequential. In July, I committed to an exhaustive review process to carefully examine the facts and consider the intangible elements of this agreement, basing my decisions exclusively on what I believed would be most likely to prevent Iran from achieving their nuclear weapons goals. I have subsequently come to the conclusion that the agreement promotes the national security interests of the United States and our allies and merits my vote of support. Read more

  • Rep. Wasserman Schultz Statement on Hurricane Katrina's Tenth Anniversary
    Posted in Press Releases on August 28, 2015 | Preview rr

    Ten years have passed since Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans and the Gulf Region, leaving in its wake a trail of death, destruction, and despair. It broke New Orleans' levees, and in turn, many people's lives were lost or upended. But before Katrina destroyed New Orleans, it hit South Florida first. It caused more than $600 million in damages and left over a million Floridians without power, while killing, either directly or indirectly, 14 people. Read more

  • Wasserman Schultz Statement on Vice President Biden's Trip to South Florida
    Posted in Press Releases on August 27, 2015 | Preview rr

    I'm looking forward to the Vice President's trip to South Florida next week. There are a number of questions and concerns that I have, along with my constituents and community leaders, about the agreement negotiated with the P5+1 nations and Iran, and given his extensive experience in the foreign policy arena and his intimate knowledge of the negotiations, I believe Vice President Biden can be an effective representative to respond to those questions.

  • Ellmers, Wasserman Schultz Defend Breast Cancer Screenings
    Posted in Press Releases on July 30, 2015 | Preview rr

    It is wrong of the USPSTF to write off any young woman in her forties who wants to have a mammogram, and this legislation's two-year moratorium will ensure we hear from the group most affected by these draft recommendations – young women under the age of 50. I am proud to stand with my friend and colleague Renee Ellmers in defending early prevention and detection for breast cancer, and urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to stand with us.

    I look forward to reviewing in detail the deal our nation's top negotiators and diplomats have put forward with Iran after months of tireless work. As I have said throughout the negotiations, any deal must ensure that Iran can never achieve their goal of developing a nuclear weapon. Read more
