Demings Releases Statement on Rubio Opposing the Child Care Tax Credit

Orlando, FL — Congresswoman Val Demings, Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate released the following statement on Senator Marco Rubio opposing the child care tax credit:

“Because of the leadership of President Biden and leaders in Congress, hundreds of thousands of working parents across Floridians will be receiving a middle class tax cut this week. Parents across Florida have struggled over the last year and this will help lift more families out of poverty and into the middle class. Marco Rubio opposed it every step of the way. He called this proposal which will benefit working families a ‘welfare handout.’ Florida deserves better than a U.S. Senator who won’t stand up for working parents coming out of this pandemic.”

Congresswoman Demings was Orlando’s first female Chief of Police after serving over two decades in law enforcement. She has represented the 10th Congressional District in Florida since 2017.
