Earlier this month, Marco Rubio was one of 38 Republican senators who voted against a United Nations treaty meant to help the world's disabled and "assure that the disabled enjoy the same rights and fundamental freedoms as their fellow citizens."
On Friday, Rubio followed up that display of callousness by voting against a $60 billion aid package for Hurricane Sandy victims. Even though it was $20 billion less than what was requested by the storm-ravaged states, Rubio joined 31 other Republicans in saying no to Sandy victims. Fortunately, there were enough votes to get the bill through the Senate, anyway.
Hopefully, Americans are taking notes and carefully filing away Rubio's voting record to reference in 2016 when he is sure to be considered for the Republican presidential nomination.
Because we should give Rubio credit for being so consistent in his principled lack of compassion for the down-and-out and impaired.
Like these folks...
