Seniors For Biden-Harris Event In Wimauma

     South Shore Democratic Board Member and 913 Precinct Captain, Donald Hampton and 933 Precinct Captain, Joyce Hamilton attend Seniors for Biden-Harris Launch in Wimauma, FL.

     Hillsborough County Democrats, State Representatives Dianne Hart and Susan Valdés, and South Shore Democratic Club President Fran Bodman, held a phone banking, postcard writing, and voter engagement event to kickoff Seniors for Biden-Harris in Florida — a national organizing coalition to mobilize key communities around what’s at stake for American seniors in the 2024 election.

     The speakers highlighted the contrast between the Biden-Harris administration’s work to protect American seniors — including reducing the cost of prescription drugs, capping the price of insulin at $35 for seniors and strengthening Social Security and Medicare — with Donald Trump’s plans to raise costs for seniors.

     Trump recently said he’d cut Social Security and Medicare, floated cutting retirement benefits, would repeal President Biden’scaps on the price of prescription drugs, and wants to terminate the ACA, which would raise costs for countless Florida seniors. In Florida, over 4 million seniors rely on Medicare and Social Security for their health and financial security.  Following Trump’s lead, state-level Republican initiatives have sought to weaken health care coverage and promote junk insurance plans, further endangering the wellbeing of Floridians.
