Ahead of CPAC Speech, Chief Demings Blasts Rubio’s Refusal to Reject Scott Tax Hike

“Marco Rubio is too cowardly to stand up to the politicians and special interests that tell him what to do”

ORLANDO — Today, former Orlando Police Chief and candidate for U.S. Senate Val Demings blasted Marco Rubio for failing to stand up to his party boss’ proposed plan to hike taxes on Florida’s working class and seniors.

“My parents were a maid and a janitor, and they spent their lives working diligently to give my siblings and me the chance at the American Dream. They paid their fair share of taxes and were proud of it. Now, Marco Rubio’s party boss is planning to hike taxes on Florida’s working class and senior citizens, and he’s going along with it. Because Marco Rubio is too cowardly to stand up to the politicians and special interests that tell him what to do.

“Floridians deserve tax breaks, not tax hikes. I’m ready to go to the U.S. Senate and fight for Florida’s working class families and seniors, instead of trying to raise their taxes.”
