Gillum Campaign releases new ad on Ron DeSantis’ votes cutting Social Security, Medicare, and raising retirement age
ORLANDO, FL — Recently, the Gillum for Governor campaign released a new ad highlighting Ron DeSantis’ record of voting for Social Security and Medicare cuts and his votes to raise the retirement age to 70 — an attack on hardworking Floridians. With just 21 days to Election Day, Ron DeSantis is trying to hide his plans to cut the healthcare and benefits Americans have earned — but his record doesn’t lie.
The ad, titled “Working,” features Floridians, the hard work they’ve done to earn their retirement and how Ron DeSantis wants to cut those benefits and give more tax breaks to billionaires.
“It’s no surprise Ron DeSantis has refused to release a healthcare plan — because his record is clear: slashing Medicare and Social Security and even to raising the retirement age,” said communications director Johanna Cervone. “Ron DeSantis’ record speaks for itself and as governor, he’d continue these attacks on hardworking Floridians. Ron DeSantis does not have Floridians’ best interest at heart, and he has shown it over and over again. Andrew Gillum has a vision for our state where Florida seniors can retire with dignity and Ron DeSantis is more worried about protecting billionaires; Ron DeSantis is wrong for Florida.”
“ Working” Transcript: I’ve been working my whole life. We work long hours. We dig we get dirty. It’s a physical job I’m on my feet all day long. I have definitely earned my retirement. But in Congress Ron DeSantis voted to raise the retirement age to 70 for social security and Medicare. And DeSantis voted 5 times to cut social security and Medicare benefits to give more tax breaks to billionaires. I’ve earned my retirement. Ron DeSantis is wrong for Florida.
