South Florida Deserves New Solutions
Our nation has long been the land of opportunity where those who work hard and play by the rules are able to find success. Generation after generation has been better off than the last.
Families across South Florida are seeing fewer opportunities to do better for themselves. Many young people graduate from college and struggle to find good jobs. Many are getting by but not getting ahead. Washington politicians have failed at proposing and implementing polices that would lead to an economy that gives everyone a fair shot.
Now, more than ever, South Florida needs new and effective leadership – a new generation of leadership that will work to pass the government reforms needed to build a healthy economy and result in greater freedom and opportunity.

He hopes 13 House Republicans who last fall signed on to a resolution calling for action on climate, signaling a breakthrough in the majority’s lockstep position, will join the new caucus…….
Carlos Curbelo Backs Uber, Lyft in Miami-Dade
From his perch on the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., said he backed ride-share services like Uber in Miami-Dade County. “I am proud to support ride-sharing services in Miami-Dade County,” Curbelo said on Wednesday. “Services, such as Uber and Lyft offer consumers the ability to choose between traditional taxi services and alternative forms of transportation. However, it is of the utmost importance that this industry ensures that every driver and vehicle pass thorough background checks, inspections, and necessary insurance mandates for each trip in order to keep passengers safe….
