Debbie Mucarsel-Powell Slams Rick Scott For Voting For A Government Shutdown

Rick Scott Has Voted Against Funding The Government THREE TIMES IN A ROW

Scott Has Consistently Held The Federal Government Hostage In An Effort To Further His Extreme Demands

Miami, FL – For the third time in a row, Rick Scott has voted against funding the government, playing dangerous games with the livelihoods of Florida families. Scott’s reckless opposition to funding the federal government is not just about politics – it’s a direct threat to the well-being of hardworking Floridians.

“While families across our state are working tirelessly to make ends meet, Rick Scott seems to think it’s acceptable to hold our government hostage to push his extreme agenda. His refusal to support crucial government funding is a slap in the face to every Floridian who relies on essential services and programs. This isn’t leadership – it’s negligence,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “Unlike Rick Scott, I will never gamble with the security and stability of our families. I will fight tirelessly to keep our government running and ensure that Florida receives the support it deserves.”

Today, Rick Scott voted to:

  • Block loans to farmers, threaten critical food support programs, and potentially increase the cost of food.
  • Risk a spike in rent and housing by freezing housing loan support.
  • Shutter critical programs and services for our veterans.
  • Increase the risk of travel delays and jeopardize the hiring and training of air traffic controllers.
