Senator Rubio Gets an Earful!

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio is confronted by fellow passengers on a flight from Miami to Washington, wondering how he can possibly support the shutting down of government services.

This short, but intriguing story just came in on my computer from Talking Points Memo. Written and filed by Igor Bobic, I take the chance of reproducing all of it immediately below. I took it from….

“Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) reportedly got an earful about a potential government shutdown from constituents who recognized him on a flight from Miami to Washington, D.C. Monday morning.
“A source on the flight told the Miami Herald that Rubio was flooded with complaints after his party demanded a repeal or delay of President Obama's signature health law in exchange for funding the government this weekend.
“According to the account, which was contested by a spokesperson for the Florida Republican that declined to elaborate on the incident, a flight attendant also asked the senator whether the government would indeed shut down midnight on Monday.
“Rubio reportedly sought to calm their concerns by calling the faceoff between the White House and House Republicans "not really a shutdown, more of a slowdown -- but not a good way to do business."

Wow! I wish I had been on that flight!
