Marco Rubio: A Fresh New Face but the Same Old Corruption

19 Jun

Thumbs Up for the Sugar Farmers (But Not You Lowly Taxpayers)

Senator Marco Rubio (R. FL) is charming and eloquent, and is in the running to be the Republican Vice Presidential candidate. His memoir, An American Son, has recently been released to great reviews. All of which proves the old adage, watch what they do, not what they say.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Rubio voted to maintain an “egregious quota program that gouges American consumers to benefit a mere 5,000 or so farmers.”

Are you surprised to learn that Rubio receives hefty campaign contributions from some of those farmers?

According to my understanding of the definition of Natural Born Citizen (and more importantly the definition believed to have been had by our founding fathers) Rubio is ineligible to be vice president anyway. What is your opinion?
