Marco- At the very least, you could “Check-in” to the Senate Chamber
As CBS 46 reports, Marco Rubio has missed 87 percent of votes cast in the Senate just this month. Yet, Rubio seems to have a double standard when it comes to anyone but himself.
Speaking from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) attacked government employees who didn’t do their jobs.
“All we’re saying in this bill is,” Rubio said, “if you work at the V.A., and you aren’t doing your job, they get to fire you. I think people are shocked that that [doesn’t] actually exist in the entire government, since there is really no other job in the country where if you don’t do your job, you don’t get fired.”
He continued: “In this instance, we’re just limiting it to one agency. This should actually be the rule in the entire government.”
“Let’s set aside Rubio’s duplicitous remarks on public servants for a second: By his own standards, No Show Rubio is essentially admitting that he is unfit for office. If he can’t be trusted to show up to his current job, why on Earth would we trust him to sit in the Oval Office?” – Michael Smith, Communications Director, Democratic Party of Georgia
