Rubio Votes Against Helping Americans In Need Again
Senator Marco Rubio continued to show his striking lack of compassion for Americans affected by Hurricane Sandy by joining 35 Republican Senators who, on Monday night, voted against aid for those who are suffering because of the storm. The assistance package passed without their help.
Rubio's insistence on placing politics before his country is particularly disgusting when you consider Florida's vulnerability to tropical storms and our dependency on similar aid in times of trouble.
Whether Floridians and, really, the entire nation will remember these votes during future elections is anyone's guess as is whether The Miami Herald's crack political writers will ever notice and get around to writing about it.
