Numerosas mentiras y mitos rodean el historial de Donald Trump sobre su ayuda a las personas de la tercera edad. Trump ha mentido diciendo que no recortaría programas centrados en personas de la tercera edad y que ayudaría personas jubilados, pero su historial nos demuestra que ha abogado por recortar sustancialmente dichos programas, y recortar los impuestos a las grandes corporaciones y a las personas que más dinero ganan.

Aquí descubrimos los mitos y la realidad del record de Donald Trump hacia las personas de la tercera edad.

Mito: Trump no va a recortar el Seguro Social ni el Medicare

Trump prometió que no recortaría el Seguro Social ni el Medicare…


Donald Trump has pushed numerous lies and myths about his record on senior citizen issues. While he has claimed he won’t cut programs for seniors and that he will help retirees, his record is one of advocating to slash senior programs, and at the same time, cut taxes for big business and high-income earners. Don’t fall for Trump’s empty promises, get the facts.

Myth: Trump won’t cut Social Security or Medicare

Trump Promised He Wouldn’t Cut Medicare or Social Security: Donald Trump promised at his campaign launch that he would “Save Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security without cuts.” He made a similar remark on his favorite medium…


Ron DeSantis has a secret.

He tried to raise your taxes. By a lot. We’re not kidding.

In Congress, Ron DeSantis wrote and sponsored legislation — three times — that would have introduced a federal sales tax. It would raise taxes on 80 percent of Floridians.

If Ron DeSantis had his way, Floridians would have to pay a 23 percent federal sales tax on everything we buy.

Everything. Groceries. Gas. Clothing. Medicine. Everything.

That would be disastrous. It would destroy the middle class, rob seniors of their savings, and devastate the most vulnerable.

DeSantis’ record in Congress offers a chilling…


By: Lydia Hudson, President of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida

Since the late 1800s, as Florida began to take its place in America as an economic and cultural force, the African American voter has represented up to 28% of the voting community.

With large voting blocks and influences in North Florida, central Florida and south Florida, Caribbean immigrants, former slaves and their descendants understood the power and importance of every eligible vote. Unfortunately, at the turn of the century, a climate of racism and separatism began to reverberate throughout the country to preserve a way of life fueled by…


After nearly 20-years of all-Republican rule in Florida, people are ready for a change, and our candidates are offering it, says Terrie Rizzo, chairman of the Florida Democratic Party.

By: Terrie Rizzio, Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman

There’s a lot of talk of the viability of the so-called “Blue Wave,” with experts on both sides saying there is little proof of it, and underestimating the momentum Florida Democrats are seeing in 2018. To them I say, analyze on, because we are organizing, collaborating, mobilizing, and communicating to voters in all 67 counties, working to see not just a blue wave, but a blue tsunami.

The criticism of Florida Democrats is fair; we haven’t elected a Democratic governor in 24 years, we haven’t held the majority in the state House or…

Like so many Floridians, my own thoughts since the Parkland tragedy have been filled with a rush of emotions. Shock, anger, and a fresh resolve that our leaders in Tallahassee must finally take action to make us safer from gun violence. Sadly, we’ve felt this succession of emotions too many times before.

But this time, it’s different, because of the brave Stoneman Douglas students: thank God for their voices, because we know what Governor Rick Scott and the GOP in Tallahassee would do on their own: absolutely nothing.

We know Scott and Tallahassee…


President Lyndon B. Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Rosa Parks at the signing of the Voting Rights Act on August 6, 1965

The bedrock of American democracy, as enshrined in our Constitution, is the simple act of voting. Voting is, as President Lyndon Johnson said upon signing the Voting Rights Act (VRA) into law, “the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice.” But that instrument, which only truly began to be extended to millions of African Americans and other minorities with the passage of the VRA in 1965, remains under threat to this day.

While the right to vote is fundamental, it is, as we have seen over the last few years, increasingly fragile. …


Ongoing Research By New Coalition of Southern Democratic State Parties Challenges Conventional Wisdom

A new coalition of southern Democratic state parties recently conducted a survey of 2,800 likely Southern voters seeking new opportunities and strategic imperatives for southern Democrats in the 2016 election cycle and beyond.

The increasing electoral advantage Republicans enjoy with Southern white voters has raised serious concerns about Democrats’ ability to compete and win here. To plot a path forward, eleven southern State Democratic Parties and Project New America have joined forces to conduct an extensive region-wide poll of likely southern voters’ attitudes toward political parties and government. …
