Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Friend of Predatory Lenders?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, in her role as a Florida State Representative, is criticized for her role in a bill that provides protection for Pay Day Lenders. There is a money trail to campaign contributions that benefit Ms Debbie. This is even in opposition to her fearless leader, President Obama. There are few people who do not know who these lenders are. While they do provide a service for the poor and unbanked, this service comes at a very steep price.  The price is paid for those that can least afford it, compounding the circle of poverty.

The 30-second spot, titled “Debt Trap Debbie,” will broadcast in the Florida representative’s South Florida district through the state’s March 15 primary.
