Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL-23) is celebrating the gains made by Democrats throughout 2022.
"House Democrats and President Biden went to work for the American people delivering historic wins and making life better for you, from your medicine cabinet and kitchen table to the clean drinking water and environment you cherish," stated Rep. Wasserman Schultz.
A major Act she highlights is the Inflation Reduction Act, which she says will "lower healthcare costs & Rx prices, lower energy costs and investments in clean energy, corporate accountability, budget deficit reduction," and finally "assurance that no family making less than $400K will see taxes go up one cent."
The second highlight is the Safer Communities Act. "This landmark legislation will save lives, and help protect our children and communities from the scourge of senseless gun violence. This was a major breakthrough on the three-decade-long chokehold that the NRA had on gun safety reforms in Congress," says Wasserman-Schultz. However, she adds it is "vital to do more" such as banning "assault weapons," safe storage laws, and expanding background checks.
Third, Wasserman-Schultz describes President Biden's visit to Broward County to share in Medicare and Social Security successes. These include price controls on insulin and other medications and healthcare savings up $2400 for 13 million families. "We will always put People Over Politics to cut costs and make our communities healthier," she adds.
Fourth, she praises the Respect for Marriage Act. "I am so proud to say that love won this year!" Wasserman-Schultz beams. "Democrats and President Biden saw the threats facing LGBTQ+ individuals and worked tirelessly to make the Respect for Marriage Act law."
Finally, at the local level, Wasserman-Schultz speaks of her aid in expanding Port Everglades, along with efforts to conserve biodiversity in the region.
On a personal note, Wasserman-Schultz also celebrated fifteen years cancer-free this year.
