All statements involving Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Says CNN's Wolf Blitzer was wrong to say that "the wealthiest Americans, they pay the most in taxes already -- 50 percent of Americans don't even pay any federal income tax."

In the New York 9th District, "there is a large number of people who went to the polls tonight who didn't support the president to begin with and don't support Democrats -- and it's nothing more than that."

"In terms of the wealthiest Americans, we're at the lowest tax rate since the 1950s."

"The nonpartisan CBO, Congressional Budget Office, has said that the No. 1 policy decision that brought us to the need to prevent the nation from defaulting on our debt for the first time in history were the Bush tax cuts in 2001 and 2003."

Says that U.S. Rep. Allen West is "a constituent of mine."

The Obama administration has cut taxes on small businesses 17 times.

By advocating new requirements for voters to show ID cards at the polls, Republicans "want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws."

The Medicare proposal by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., would "allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions."

The Democratic health care law "added 12 years of solvency to Medicare."

Says the person who Florida U.S. Rep. Allen West first hired as chief of staff told people attending a Tea Party rally that, 'We will use bullets if ballots don't work.'

"A 5 percent increase in domestic production would increase the world supply by less than 1 percent and do almost nothing to our dependence on foreign oil. This would also have virtually no effect on the price of gas at the pump."  

Dan Webster supports "privatization of Social Security, deep cuts in Social Security."

Republicans are now "taking credit" for provisions of the health care bill "that they had tried to derail."  

"On the pace that we're on with job creation in the last four months ... we will have created more jobs in this year than in the entire Bush Presidency."

"We actually have not required in this law that you carry health insurance."

"The Republicans have repeatedly said that they agree with 80 percent of what's in our bill."
