As a breast cancer survivor, I was moved to join fellow survivors at the Davie Cooper City Relay for Life this weekend. I am confident that together, we can and will find a cure and beat cancer.
Congratulations to the Broward County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. on over 60 years of service to the dynamic and distinguished women of our community! It was such a joy to join you at your Rubies & Pearls Gala as we celebrate Women's History Month. I am proud of your work in our community, and even prouder to represent you in our nation's Capitol.
We united to defeat #Trumpcare, and because of that, America's seniors, women, children and families are all better off. Yes, we can improve the Affordable Care Act. But the #Trumpcare bill that House Republicans were pushing was an assault on millions of Americans who have gained access to affordable care through the #ACA, and tens of millions of more who would have seen losses in benefits or...

Rep Debbie Wasserman Schultz on New Day 3/24
Republicans want to overhaul of our health care system, and usher in higher costs and less coverage while weakening Medicare and Medicaid. What they don't want is for Americans to understand the real-life consequences of this #legislative nightmare known as #Trumpcare. It's beyond irresponsible and hypocritical. It's dangerous for America's families, seniors and hospitals.
Democrats are willing to fix the #ACA. It's not perfect. But we will not push 14 million people into the ranks of the uninsured next year, gut Medicaid and make older Americans and families #PayMoreForLess. #TrumpCare means higher costs, less coverage, key protections gutted and a crushing #AgeTax for seniors.

Rep Debbie Wasserman Schultz on New Day 3/24
Once again, it's obvious we need a comprehensive, open, bipartisan investigation into how Putin's Russia has influenced our elections and the Trump campaign and White House.

AP Exclusive: US probes banking of ex-Trump campaign chief
House Republican leaders are prepared to put millions more women, children and seniors into economic and health care pain just to pass #Trumpcare. It's disgusting, ruthless and cruel.

Obama health law's 'essential benefits' may be in jeopardy
Every day there's a new revelation that drives home the need for an open, independent bipartisan investigation into the Russian influence on our elections, and specifically the Trump campaign and Trump’s White House.

AP Exclusive: Manafort had plan to benefit Putin government
Trump's foreign policy lies undermine America's standing in the world and make us all less safe. His actions endanger all of us. Trump is angering friends and attracting new enemies. As Susan Rice says: Trump's distortions "pose a serious risk to America’s global leadership, among friends and adversaries alike.”

Opinion | Susan Rice: When the White House twists the truth, we are all less safe
More Trump lies: @realDonaldTrump says the #ACA is 'collapsing.' Other Republicans parrot the 'death spiral' talking point. Yet the vast majority of Americans -- about 205 million of them -- get their health care coverage through job-based plans and Medicare, and those costs have been rising at historically low levels since the #aCA passed in 2010. Meanwhile 24 million Americans stand to join...

Trump says Obamacare 'is collapsing.' Here's what he's getting wrong
The lies and scandals that have dominated Donald Trump's presidency are going to weaken us globally. I agree that what we're witnessing is a "miniaturization of the presidency."

Opinion | The American presidency is shrinking before the world’s eyes
The #Trumpcuts would mean dirtier air, more hungry Americans, weakened public education, and less access to health care and after-school programs. The Trump budget vision: "It's a dark one."

Trump’s budget makes the unkindest cuts of all
President Trump's proposed budget war on science and medical research would stymie crucial advances for generations. Cancer and other medical research, along with climate science would be some of his most galling victims. Trump's budget is basically a Tea Party wish list. As one scientist told the New York Times, "I don't know what's going through the Administration's head? It's almost surreal."

Scientists Bristle at Trump Budget’s Cuts to Research
We truly live in paradise down here in South Florida. Spent an incredible weekend camping with our kids and their friends on Boca Chita Key at Biscayne National Park! #loveflorida
The American priorities and values that the Trump budget attacks are almost too long to list: science, seniors, children, health research, the arts and the environment are just some of the ugliest examples. It comes on top of Trump's support for horrible health care legislation that will drive up coverage costs for older Americans, and lower access to it for women, children and the poor. This...

Opinion | Republicans’ four-point plan to help the poor get poorer
The Trump budget is a heartless attack on seniors, children, science and the arts, and is openly hostile to health research, the environment and the poor. This budget is one of the ugliest distortions of American values ever put in front of Congress.

Trump’s Budget Guts the EPA and Help for Poor Seniors. It’s a Perfect Symbol of His Administration.
So many seniors already struggle to survive and pay for medicine and health care. We can not allow the House Republican #Trumpcare bill to assess what the AARP calls an 'Age Tax' on older Americans. #PayMoreForLess

GOP's Obamacare replacement bill is an 'age tax' on older Americans, AARP says
Florida's scientists agree: President Trump's push to cut vital @NOAA research on climate change, pollution monitoring and extreme weather tracking is like looking at the world with a half-blind eye and not two good eyes." We can't let it happen.

Florida scientists fear hurricane forecasts, climate research will suffer under Trump
