Marco Rubio’s vote for Betsy Devos was bought for $100,000. Hot damn! Good for Marco Rubio. Sure beats selling spicy hot dogs on South Beach.
Devos was the nominee for Secretary of Education. It is difficult to comprehend that someone who has never taught a day in their life, could be voted into this position. But she got it.
Screw our children, and the public education system that she has devoted her life to destroying. Not to mention protests from every single public school teacher in the world, Rubio voted her in, with one big smile on his face.
Rubio, how many of those teacher’s annual salaries could you pay with that sweet fortune Devos gave you?
Apparently, Rubio doesn’t care about those teachers, nor does he care about our kids. His kids go to a private school, so they wouldn’t be affected. She was elected by just one razor thin vote.
She got Rubio’s vote, but it wasn’t easy. Apparently, Rubio put up a li’l fuss. He crossed his arms at his chest, and stomped his feet into the ground and didn’t budge until he heard the right amount. His vote was hard to buy. No other senator’s votes required as much money as what they gave Rubio.
In the past twenty years, Rubio has suffered a catastrophic identity crisis. He has worn more masks than you’d find in the Halloween section of Walmart. The Miami public initially liked him and his stories of arriving on a raft with his family from Cuba.
He had the public eating out of his sweaty palms. But then, when he tried to weasel himself into Tea Party stardom, it turned out his stories of being an illegal immigrant was just a lie. The only thing Tea Bags hate more than democrats are illegal aliens.
Marco Rubio governs a district of just one person. There is only one person whom all of his legislation is ultimately aimed to satisfy. Himself. Rubio is the epitome of a Republican politician. This guy would knife his own grandma if it boosted his career. Actually, he did throw his Cuban family and heritage under the bus, in an attempt to appease the Tea Party. He has no loyalty, except to his bank account.
Before Trump made any nominations, Rubio declared that his approval would not be easy to gain. At the time, political analysts credited Rubio’s dissonance with how Trump treated him during the election. After Trump ridiculed him and called him “Li’l Marco” during the entire campaign, of course Rubio would not vote for his nominations. Poor Li’l Marco was humiliated by Donald Trump.
Within a few week, something managed to change Rubio’s opinion regarding Trump’s nominations. Rubio voted for all of Trump’s picks!
At first though, Rubio played that prude li’l schoolgirl. If Trump wanted any action, he better be prepared to hand Rubio the sun and the moon, and maybe a few comets too. Rubio pretended to be against all of Trump’s nominees. Regarding Trump’s Secretary of State, Rubio said,
“While Rex Tillerson is a respected businessman, I have serious concerns about his nomination. The next secretary of state must be someone who views the world with moral clarity, is free of potential conflicts of interest, has a clear sense of America’s interests, and will be a forceful advocate for America’s foreign policy goals to the president, within the administration, and on the world stage,” Rubio said shortly after Tillerson’s nomination became official.
Marco Rubio sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. This committee only has a 10-9 Republican advantage, so when they voted for Tillerson, Rubio’s vote alone could have blocked Tillerson. Despite Trump’s humiliation of him, Rubio’s unnerving loyalty was like a rock!
According to a Federal Election Commission reports crunched by the Center for American Progress (CAP), Marco Rubio took $98,300 from Devos and her family members
Betsy Devos said, “I have decided, however, to stop taking offense at the suggestion that we are buying influence. Now I simply concede the point. They are right… We expect a return on our investment.” MiamiNewTimes
Mark my words, Betsy is very pleased with her investment.
