Millions Of Florida Families Are Benefiting From A Major Middle Class Tax Cut Marco Rubio Opposed

2 mins read

Today millions of families across Florida will receive another monthly tax cut to help them afford child care and pay the bills, proving again that the Child Tax Credit expansion Marco Rubio voted against has been a major help for working families. 

“Nearly 3.6 million children across Florida are benefitting from these tax cuts, and Marco Rubio’s vote against this measure to lift children out of poverty sends a clear message to Floridians. At a time when working families are counting on their leaders to help them make ends meet, Marco Rubio is more focused on his own political agenda than doing what’s best for Florida,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox

recent study showed the new CTC has lifted over 3.5 million children out of poverty across the country, and polls show the program is broadly popular. Yet Rubio continues to vocally oppose it. 

Will Rick Scott Stand By Herschel Walker’s Defense Of A Swastika?

Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker faced widespread condemnation this week after he defended the use of a swastika.
Florida is home to over 650,000 Jewish people. Walker’s behavior raises a key question for Rick Scott, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee: will he defend Walker for standing by the use of a swastika? 

“Herschel Walker aligned himself with a hateful, anti-Semitic symbol, and then despicably doubled down on its use. Floridians need to know whether Rick Scott stands by Walker’s dangerous behavior,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox.  

Scott’s NRSC welcomed Walker into the Georgia Senate race, praising him as a “a great American and a great Republican.”
