DCCC launches new campaign against Steve Southerland: ‘Sick n’ Broke’

in Uncategorized by

As Congressman Steve Southerland continues to stack the deck for special interests and focus on the wrong priorities, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched a new paid campaign to highlight the totality of his damaging health care agenda, which it says “hurts the people of Florida at every stage of their lives.”

Sick N’ Broke – modeled after the Game of Life – features an online board game that tracks “the many costly games Congressman Southerland plays with Americans’ health care, from the cradle to the grave. ” 

“Whether it’s being able to afford an emergency C-section, making sure kids get the right nutrition, ensuring women don’t have to pay more for their care or guaranteeing Medicare’s future, Congressman Southerland and his Republicans play reckless games that hurt your health at every stage of life – all because they would rather stack the deck for their special interest buddies,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Now you can see just how much of a mess Congressman Southerland would make of your health care – but one spoiler alert: in this game, you can’t win.”
