Marco Rubio’s Cowardly Vote Against Raising The Debt Ceiling Would Put Florida Jobs And Social Security at Risk

1 min read

Despite experts’ warnings that a debt default would cost Florida jobs, cut Social Security, and trigger a severe recession, Marco Rubio once again voted to prolong a potential economic crisis and against raising the debt ceiling. 

“Floridians can’t afford any more of Marco Rubio’s self-serving political games. Rubio is too weak to stand up for what is best for Florida and side with working families who are at risk of losing their jobs and hard earned Social Security. Floridians won’t forget that Rubio failed to step up to protect Social Security and the nation’s economy, and they’ll hold him accountable for his cowardice next November,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox.

Rubio’s votes to bring the U.S. closer to a debt default aren’t just destructive, they’re downright hypocritical. As the Tampa Bay Times noted in a scathing editorial, Rubio is refusing to pay for a massive tax giveaway to corporations and the wealthy that he previously voted for, jeopardizing the economy for everyday Floridians.

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
