Marco Rubio Pulls a Barack Obama in the Spending Fight

Look, if we are all going to point out that Ted Cruz did draft an amendment that would have allowed legalization, we kinda need to point this out.

This week, Marco Rubio made the omnibus spending package an issue. He was opposed to it and spoke out against it.

But when it came up for a vote, Rubio did not show up.

No, not showing up is not the same as voting no. At least, when Barack Obama was voting “present” Marco Rubio and Republicans said that. Are we really going to change the standard now?
