The stupidity of politicians never ceases to amaze me. Case in point is Senator Marco Rubio. Sunday’s edition of the Orlando Sentinel (January 18, 2015) had a section where they summarized what Florida’s congress members said were the most important things they made a difference in for their constituents in 2014. Ever-astute Marco Rubio’s thoughts on where he made a difference in 2014? According to the newspaper, Rubio’s proudest moments in 2014 were “Met with constituents,” “Called for VA secretary’s resignation” and “Gave many speeches.” Yes, that’s right, in between meeting with constituents and calling for the VA secretary’s resignation, Marco Rubio’s most accomplished moment in 2014 was giving “many speeches” in 2014! And some you still wonder why congress is so dysfunctional!
