Sun-Sentinel to Rubio: Work or Quit Senate

A stunning editorial in the Sun-Sentinel tells Senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio to either do his job representing the state of Florida or go home.

“If you hate your job, senator, follow the honorable lead of House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and resign it,” the editorial said.

Rubio has missed more votes than any other Senator in Washington. Rubio put his absence down to his campaign for president. However, a long-time friend told the Washington Post that Rubio is frustrated and “hates” being in the Senate.

The editorial goes on to say harshly: “You are ripping us off, senator.”

Two weeks ago, you took to the Senate floor to excoriate federal workers at the Department of Veterans Affairs for failing to do their jobs. You said, “there is really no other job in the country where if you don’t do your job, you don’t get fired.”

With the exception of your job, right?
