The future chair of the DNC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) came out swinging today to address Paul Ryan’s “path to poverty.”
This is what I like to see.
“Representing a large number of seniors in south Florida, I can tell you that this budget would be devastating for seniors and older Americans. This Republican path to poverty passes like a tornado through America’s nursing homes, where millions of America’s seniors receive long-term and end of life care. [...]
Under this budget plan, Republicans are trying to back out of our commitment to our seniors. We cannot go back on our promise to the greatest generation. The Republican path to poverty does just that.”
Clear and concise messaging with the appropriate wording to grab the attention of average Americans. Yes, I’m a fan. And yes, it absolutely is a “path to poverty,” and that needs to be repeated constantly. Beat them over the head with it.
