Marco Rubio, who has stated he hates his job as Senator and has said he will leave it if his presidential bid fails, does not object to collecting a nice paycheck while failing to give his constituents a voice in their government. ($14,500 a month) The establishment candidate for president who advocates for open borders and bows to the Chamber of Commerce and has also sponsored a bill tripling the size of the H-1B visa program, the program that allows US companies to fire American workers and bring in cheap foreign labor, has been told to resign by one of Florida’s largest newspaper.
“You are ripping us off, senator.”
“By choosing to stay in the Senate and get the publicity, perks and pay that go with the position — without doing the work — you are taking advantage of us. Your job is to represent Floridians in the Senate. Either do your job, Sen. Rubio, or resign it.”
Voters are used to having elected representatives missing votes due to campaigning, but what is difference here is that Rubio has said he will leave the Senate if his campaign flops. So, why delay his resignation other than the salary and benefits? The US taxpayers are funding his personal life as he runs for president.
Now, I will concede one point. It’s unlikely that Rubio would hate his job as president, since the RNC, Chamber of Commerce and large donors will actually be doing the day to day job, while he and his wife tools around the United States and overseas. Oh sure, he will occasionally have to sign some liberal legislation presented to him by ultra liberal Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, but it’s such a small price to pay to ensure you will make more money than you will need for the rest of your life. For someone like Rubio, who is in perpetual financial straits, that is an important perk.
Look for Rubio to milk the taxpayers for all he can get.
