DEBBIE MUCARSEL-POWELL'S STORY IS FLORIDA'S STORY.
While her mother worked double shifts as a home healthcare provider, Debbie worked at a doughnut shop to help her family make ends meet. After working her way through high school and college, Debbie worked for Florida International University’s Colleges of Health and Medicine. While at FIU, Debbie helped lead a program to expand access to affordable healthcare to more Floridians.
Serving in Congress, Debbie fought to expand opportunity for every American. Debbie wrote the bill to expand seniors’ Medicare Advantage coverage, and she worked with Republicans to provide economic relief to families and small businesses, and secured $200 million for Everglades restoration. When Debbie was 24, she tragically lost her father to gun violence, and she has been a lifelong advocate for reducing crime and keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.
NOW, DEBBIE IS RUNNING FOR THE U.S. SENATE BECAUSE OUR DEMOCRACY, OUR ECONOMY AND OUR RIGHTS ARE ALL ON THE LINE — AND SENATOR RICK SCOTT HAS FAILED FLORIDIANS.
Florida is one of the least affordable states in the nation, but Senator Rick Scott wants to raise taxes on our families and end Social Security and Medicare coverage. As someone who takes care of her elderly mother, Debbie will always fight to protect Medicare, Social Security and access to quality, affordable healthcare.
And Rick Scott has pushed for a nationwide abortion ban, working to take the rights away of women and their families.
