Marco Rubio Skips His 18th Special Committee On Aging Hearing In A Row

No Evidence Rubio Has Shown Up To A Single Aging Committee Hearing In 2.5 Years

1 min read

Where is Marco Rubio? Not showing up for Florida seniors. Today marks the 18th hearing of the Special Committee On Aging that Rubio has failed to show up for. Rubio has gone two and a half years without there being any evidence of his attending a hearing for this committee, likely missing well over a dozen important discussions impacting over one in five Florida residents. 
“Marco Rubio represents over 4.5 million seniors, more than almost any other Senator, and yet he’s too focused on his own political agenda to bother showing up for work to fight on their behalf. After spending years supporting cuts to Medicare and Social Security, Rubio’s failure to do his job is another shameful attack on Florida seniors,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox. 
Here are just a few issues the committee investigated that Marco Rubio felt weren’t important enough to show up for: 

  • Building a stronger retirement system for older Americans 
  • Protecting seniors from frauds and scams during the COVID pandemic
  • Expanding Medicare to cover vision and dental care 
  • Protecting seniors and at-risk Americans from COVID 
  • Supporting the workers, families, and caregivers who care for seniors 
  • Protecting seniors from Social Security impersonation scams

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.
