Marco Rubio thinks he’s pretty smart. Sure, he has a silver tongue and recites great soundbites like any good politician. But, like every piece of dirt politician, he will say and support whatever he believes will further his political career. But Marco’s not quite as smart as he thinks.
The Dims and wussypants RINOs saw Marco coming on Amnesty and managed to destroy any future support he will have from the Tea Partiers who put him into office. It’s a toss-up over whether Democrats or the wussypants Republicans despise the Tea Party and fiscal conservatives more. My vote goes to the wussy boy RINOs. But both Dims and RINOs convinced Rubio to commit political suicide with his most staunch supporters over the Amnesty Bill who now are looking to primary him when his first term ends. Not a good position to be in for an up and comer. Rubio, among Tea Partiers, is now a down and outer. Yes, he may feel safe inside the warm embrace of his new buddies Charles Schumer and John McCain. He may even end up as the Republican nominee for President one day. And he will lose, just like Bob Dole, George Bush and Mitt Romney who were each big-government moderates who never sealed the deal with the fleeing conservative wing of the Republican Party.
Rubio is now trying to reel the conservatives back in. He’s now full-speed ahead going after the defunding of ObamaCare. Totally predictable and totally safe. But also totally a waste of time because he fully knows the wussypants Republican caucus would rather sell their children off for medical experiments in Zambia than defund ObamaCare.
Rubio told Mark Levin:
“[T]here has to be some point at which we say, ‘Look, this is the issue where we draw the line,’” Rubio said. “I mean, on this issue we’re willing to fight no matter what the consequences, politically or otherwise. If that issue is not Obamacare, I can’t understand what issue it would be. And that’s the point I tried to make — of all the issues out there, if there was one issue that we should be willing to go to the limit on, this is it. I mean, you look at the impact this thing is going to have October 1 on every aspect of our economy. There’s literally not one aspect of our economy that is not negatively affected by Obamacare. And if that’s not an issue we’re willing to fight to the end on, I’m not sure there is such an issue that we’d be will to do that on.”
The majority of conservatives wish Marco would have drawn the line at Amnesty which will make the Republican Party as scarce as intelligence on MSNBC.
The thing is, on ObamaCare, Rubio is exactly right! ObamaCare WILL destroy everything! Small and mid-sized businesses will not be able to meet the ridiculous regulations of ObamaCare and survive. Moreover, most hourly workers in America do not yet realize that now they will be forced to purchase insurance or will have money seized automatically from their earnings.
AWD has a good friend who manages a 300 employee company in the business services industry. The vast majority of his employees are hourly and do not opt for the company’s very basic healthcare plan. Either they have insurance through the VA, a spouse, or opt for free-services at the clinic. The company is struggling to keep their doors open with a struggling economy and only put $125,000 on the bottom line in profit last year. Under ObamaCare, the company must either offer an ObamaCare-approved health care plan that would cost between $6,000-$8,000 per year per employee. That’s not possible. The other choice is to pay the government a $2,000 per year/employee fine for all employees over the first 50. Again, impossible. That’s a $500,000 fine yearly for a company that only made $125,000 in profit!
Many companies have tried to sidestep these regulations by making employees part-time. But Obama has also recently ruled that making employees part-time will not be allowed under ObamaCare. What’s the option for my friend’s company? Go out of business with 300 employees who didn’t want healthcare losing their jobs. Great choices! But what can we expect when ObamaCare was written by corruptocrats and lobbyists in Washington who have never signed the front of a paycheck?
Marco’s late-inning stand against ObamaCare is a totally predictable attempt for him to try and weasel his way back into the good graces of his former-supporters. And, for Rubio, it’s totally safe. He knows Boehner would go through a case of Kleenex before ever thinking about defunding ObamaCare. Mitch McConnell talks tough on ObamaCare because he is being primaried for reelection in Kentucky. But he’ll collapse quicker than Michael Moore’s lawn chair when push comes to whimper.
There are only two real conservatives in the Senate. Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas. Rand Paul has too much Ron Paul wacko blood coursing in his veins to take him seriously. Marco Rubio has exposed himself as a con man. Two conservatives out of 50 corruptocrats doesn’t offer a lot for conservatives to hang our hats on.
Rubio continued with Levin:
“[L]ook, I’m not attacking anyone directly,” Rubio said. “All I’m saying is that you cannot say you are against Obamacare if you are willing to vote for a law that funds it. If you’re willing to fund this thing, you can’t possibly say you’re against it.”
Of course you’re not attacking your good friends in the most deliberative body on Earth! Those good friends who have destroyed America with $17 trillion in national debt on their watch and seek to fully destroy America with ObamaCare. We wouldn’t want you to get taken off of the Schumer cocktail party invite list! Grow a pair of cojones, Rubio!
Rubio is smart but not smart enough to see that conservatives and former-supporters have his number just as much as Chuck Schumer and John McCain. And we know that, with the exception of Lee and Cruz, there are 48 wastes of space that are concerned for themselves and themselves only, America be damned. Because that is exactly what America is under their governance.
Rubio did us all a favor by exposing his unbridled ambition so early in his career. Now we will think of him as a leader no more. Just another sorry politician.
