CRESCENT BEACH, Fla., Jan. 5, 2018 –– Nancy Soderberg, national security expert, educator and small business owner, running for Florida’s Sixth Congressional district, issued the following statement in response to Rep. Ron DeSantis’s decision not to run for re-election:
Republicans in Congress just passed a massive tax bill that gives massive handouts to corporations and the wealthy, and largely pays for it by taxing middle-class Americans and mortgaging our future.
Today’s decision by the FCC to end net neutrality will not only make parts of the internet more expensive for consumers and content providers, it will also serve as a grave threat to free speech and innovation. It reverses the key principle that all content on the Internet is equal.
CONGRESS MUST ACT TO REVERSE THIS MOVE, and if it does not, I'll fight to get it done when I am in Congress.
The best part about what happened last night in Alabama is the momentum it's creating for Democratic candidates across the nation. This bodes well for us.
Senator-elect Doug Jones' incredible victory is further proof that when you stand for what’s right, and run an inclusive campaign that brings people together, you can win! That’s what we are doing in District 6, here in Florida.
Late last week, my opponent, Ron DeSantis, stood by President Trump’s side as he rallied for Roy Moore.
As you likely have heard, Moore has been accused of harassing and assaulting teens, was literally banned from the local mall, and even a local police officer was instructed to keep Moore away from the cheerleaders at the high school football games.
The clock is ticking down to avert a shutdown:
Congress has until MIDNIGHT FRIDAY to come up with legislation to fund the government and keep the US economy from nosediving.
In 2013, the last time the government shutdown, vital services and programs were halted such as social security and disability provisions, national parks and monuments were closed, and the US lost $2.5 billion in GDP productivity.
The Republican tax plan passed by the Senate this morning WILL HURT FLORIDA FAMILIES. It’s an irresponsible bill that most members haven’t even read.
Many residents will see their taxes go up, widespread benefits would be eliminated, and $1.5 trillion would be added to the national debt.
Right before Thanksgiving, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai, announced that the administration is planning a total repeal of net neutrality rules by December 14.
If this passes, internet providers such as Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T would be allowed to auction off internet service speeds to the highest bidder and also be able to choose and block which sites customers have access to.
After months of taunting and threats to North Korea, we saw a different President Trump today in his visit to Seoul.
It was a remarkable and welcome change of tone. Today, President Trump seemed more inclined to let diplomacy work, backing off on previous remarks that negotiations would be a waste of time.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has launched their first attack on me… and from my standpoint, this is a very good sign.
They’re nervous about this race—and they should be. The NRCC knows that the voters of this district are tired of the extreme right dominating our politics and Congressional leadership.
I’ve had diabetes for decades. In my case, I’ve been able to manage it well and am healthy and feeling great. I’m also lucky to have good insurance through my current employer.
Now, millions of people like me with pre-existing conditions are once again about to face an enormous burden of even higher health care costs and poorer coverage.
Nancy Soderberg’s campaign for Florida’s Sixth Congressional district announced raising over $336,000 in its first quarter. Soderberg launched her campaign July 19. Soderberg's numbers put her among top contenders for the House nationally.
Over 9 million low-income children rely on the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for health insurance, and Congressional Republicans just let it expire.
If action is not taken quickly to restore funding, the damage will soon be felt across the country – hurting 350,000 children in Florida.
Democrats should take no glee from the reported claims that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the President a moron and continues to be undermined by President Trump.
In fact, the public disagreements between the President and Secretary Tillerson are a problem for us as a nation.
By eliminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, President Trump and his Republican allies are deliberately inflicting a grievous injury upon this country and all of us.
(Crescent Beach) - Former U.N. Ambassador and Deputy National Security Advisor Nancy Soderberg, who is running to replace Ron DeSantis in Florida’s 6th Congressional District, issued the following statement:
"In an outrageous move, Congressman DeSantis has filed a motion to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russian actors.
As you may have read, new intelligence has emerged indicating North Korea now has the capability to miniaturize nuclear weapons. That, combined with North Korea's consistent disregard for international law and unsanctioned nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests, put our country at risk.
Rather than tamp down the crisis, President Trump escalated it by saying “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
New information and questions have surfaced about the Trump Campaign's meetings with Russian government officials . Ambassador Nancy Soderberg and Jeremy Bash join Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word" to analyze the possible outcomes and fallout from the situation.
Ambassador Nancy Soderberg and other experts debate national security threats facing the U.S. and extreme vetting policies on Fox News' "Hannity."
