"It had been loaded up with a bunch of things that had nothing to do with disaster relief," Rubio replied. "I would never put out there that we should go use a disaster relief package for Florida as a way to pay for all kinds of other things people want around the country."

Turns out beggars can be choosers.

So, you'd rather let people die and suffer to appease your political beliefs.

Nice ethos you have there.

"IT WASN'T PERFECT AND I WANT IT TO BE PERFECT!!"

Problem is, his voters will never hold him to account for it and he knows that.

Rubio explained his position on the Hurricane Ian relief to Bash: "I will fight against it having pork in it. That's the key,"

Of course.  Everyone knows Republicans greatly prefer chicken...

No red state bailouts.

A true leader.  He's on all sides of every issue.
 
2022-10-03 10:22:24 AM  
Of note: Rubio has neither a spine nor any actual beliefs beyond "gettin mine" and "stigginit" So there's that. Like nearly all right wingers.
 
2022-10-03 10:22:39 AM  
You have to understand, he was in front of different people and cameras each time. It's really just a misunderstanding.

Republicans have to block/oppose everything Biden does. But Biden wants to help Florida recover from a hurricane...and Republican ideology demands they block recovery because Biden wants to help.
Heck of an ideology Republicans have there, ain't it?

The problem is it wasn't their pork. See everyone's against pork unless it's things they like. This is stupid and Republicans are dying on a really stupid hill. "Ohh it was full of pork.so we HAD to vote against it because suddenly we're fiscally conservative." Bullshiat. There's a farking library of garbage you pushed through to blow the deficit and debt to high hell. Stop. You're doing it because your a pandering fool and you think the moron brigade can troll libs with this. They're trying but it's shiat.
Republicans in Congress are the worst version of what humanity can offer the cosmos. Seriously. Just be farking humans for 3 seconds. The people in Lee county don't farking care about this shiat. They need food, water, power and help that isn't a FEMA backed loan at 8%apr. Do better republicans. And shame on anyone who thinks "pork bad" and political pandering is enough reason to just let Lee county residents die.

Little Marco.  Sad!

Republicans absolutely hate passing things that actually help people, but natural disasters make it really hard to refrain from doing so, which is quite the problem for them. How do they hold back the bile and revulsion they experience when voting for things to help people? I'm sure it keeps them up at night. Not the thousands or millions of people devastated by the disaster, but rather the necessity of helping them.

It's a shame it takes a natural disaster for voters to watch what they do in regards to providing help, because if they did it all the time Republicans wouldn't get elected.

You know, a hurricane would be the last thing I'd mock Rubio about.

Okay, granted, the umbrella is a bit silly.

I'm 1000% certain he immediately turned around and submitted a pork-free relief bill.  CERTAIN.

Translation: "I would never make an effort to help my fellow Floridians if it means other people might also be helped."

To be fair, Rubio has been mocked relentlessly since he's transitioned from pro-immigration Republican to Trump sycophant.

Back then we just cast shade on his connections to Miami cocaine money.

Federal funding has always been like that...isn't changing...EVER.  Be consistent in your assholery Rubio.
 
2022-10-03 11:30:28 AM  
Nice headline.
 
2022-10-03 11:30:54 AM  
So what was the bill loaded up with that he did not like? Not enough tax cuts for the rich in it?

Are you ready, Marco?

DeSantis and Rubio up about 8-9 points over their Dem opponents.

asswipes.  Can't shake my dick at you hard enough, Florida.

Rubio is a weasely little shiatburger and his followers accept all of this cognitive dissonance at once.

"Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and re-inscribed exactly as often as was necessary."
 
2022-10-03 11:48:26 AM  
I have it on good authority that hurricanes are all a hoax anyway.  So, whatever...

Yeah, because hypothetical unspecified unrelated spending is by definition helping people, amirite?

Rubio is a disingenuous grifting twat just like the rest of the current GQP.


/Great headline subby.
/Except the earworm part

groppet: So what was the bill loaded up with that he did not like? Not enough tax cuts for the rich in it?


He wants $100 billion in relief.  $100 million goes into a block grant for rebuilding and $99.9 billion goes into tax cuts for a few years for the rich?
 
2022-10-03 12:25:30 PM  
When he first emerged on the scene, I thought he might end up being one of the better republicans in the senate.

Now, I don't know what's worse. That I was so wrong or that, compared to Ted Cruz and his ill, I was kinda right.

I don't know you and I already hate you for defending a shiat-ass hypocrite.

Buy your rope, Judas-defending garbage.

Do you regularly tell people you don't know that you hate them and encourage them to kill themselves? Why should I care what you think about me? If that's the kind of person you are, I'm not offended that you don't like me. Maybe I'm even a little proud of it. It certainly won't keep me up at night. If you weren't such a dick, I might be inclined to explain what I said, but I don't see the need. GFY

No, I don't tell people that.

I tell traitor garbage that.

Buy your goddamned rope, you heinous filth.

And if you had something worth saying that wasn't defense of a two-faced liar hypocrite you would have farking said that instead; and there's nothing stopping you from saying that while the thread's still open.

But nope, you just act offended at being called out for defending garbage-ass trash and are letting that defense sit there unaltered, so you must be perfectly fine defending lying traitors, because you're one as well.

BUY YOUR GODDAMNED ROPE, TRASH.

Wow you seem really mad. You should probably get that looked at.

You should buy a rope.
