First, Ocasio-Cortez dropped this reality bomb on the laziest of the privileged class: Republican officers.
And the Lilliputian Rubio was silent. So Ocasio-Cortez expounded on these truths all of us imagine to be self-evident:
Ruh roh. About 13 hours later, the tiniest individual within the historical past of Florida, Rubio stepped ahead with this tall story, tweeting: “Apologies for late response. Was busy this week serving to a Floridian get journey paperwork to see his dying sister, a excessive schooler whose mom died get SSI advantages, a specialist for a kid with a loopy Obamacare deductible & negotiating Intelligence invoice & one other spherical of PPP.” Is that this all true? Possibly. Rubio doesn’t have a great monitor file with telling the reality about his actions, or emotions or concepts or something, for that matter.
Not like Ocasio-Cortez, Rubio’s makes an attempt at swiping whereas sinking within the quicksand of ethical chapter didn’t go as effectively. Additionally, the swipe at excessive deductibles is valuable coming from somebody whose solely piece of legislature has been to offer away tax breaks to the folks elevating the deductibles.
And a few logistics.
After which sadly, a extra sensible proposal of what Rubio’s tweet actually reveals.
And what which means to his constituents within the quick time period and long run.
And a reminder, Sen. Marco Rubio missed the most votes of any Florida senator in 50 years within the run as much as his embarrassing major loss to Donald Trump in 2015.
