DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz, Lt. Gov. Candidate Taddeo to Discuss Impact of Another Rubio Shutdown on Florida

WASHINGTON – Today, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and candidate for Lieutenant Governor Annette Taddeo will hold a conference call with reporters at 12:30 PM EST to highlight how Florida’s working families will be affected by another government shutdown, as suggested in recent days by Sen. Marco Rubio.

Last fall, the federal government was shut down for 16 days, led in part by Florida’s own Rubio in yet another  Republican attempt to gut Obamacare and undermine the ability of millions of Americans to gain access to health care – something Rick Scott knows a thing or two about. Rubio’s shutdown meant for Florida that Head Start programs across the state were suspended, thousands of the Kennedy Space Center’s employees were furloughed, and half of the National Guard’s federal employees were furloughed which risked efforts to prepare for tropic weather and so much more.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014
