wassermanschiavoLooking back at the appeals and legislation surrounding the Terri Schiavo case makes my head spin. At the time, my family and I followed every twist, every turn, and every detail of her family’s struggle to keep her alive….

One person I remember well from that time is Long Island’s own Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who decided to stay in Florida after earning her Political Science degrees there (along with a certificate in political campaigning that would serve her well)…. Wasserman Shultz was the public face of Florida’s push to let Schiavo die….

Wasserman Schultz seemed to soak it up, hopping from interview to interview. When she told everyone she had “just gone through this with her husband’s aunt” – not her own child or blood relation – I cringed. Her motives seemed more blatantly political than personal to me….

She seemed less concerned with Terri Schiavo than making a name for herself. And for all the airtime time she copped during the legal mess that was the Schiavo case, I can only find one video of Wasserman Schultz speaking about it during that time. Every appearance she made leading up to the death of Terri Schiavo seems to have been scrubbed from the internet….

Wasserman Schultz repeatedly criticized Terri’s Bill as “overstepping Congressional authority.” She ranted about “separation of powers” and “states’ rights.” “When I ran for Congress, I didn’t ask my constituents for the right to make these decisions,” she said. “We’re not God.” I can only imagine how spitting mad she would have been if George W. Bush had forced the Affordable Care Act on her constituents.
