Rubio Wants Us To Forget His Record
Marco Rubio would like voters to forget that he has made a career of misleading them to get elected.
Rubio, and I do not say this lightly, reminds me more of Obama than does Hillary Clinton. He is dishonest and despite what his record clearly shows he adheres to the mantra of “are we voters going to believe him or our lying eyes?”
I warned voters that Rubio was not to be trusted when he ran for U.S. Senate in 2010. He told many of the same outright fabrications then that he is telling now to divert attention from his commitment to amnesty.
Let me point out a few facts that aren’t mentioned or discussed near enough.
Illegal aliens are and have been continually stealing from America’s middle class by receiving shelter, schooling, healthcare, food, ad nauseum for decades. Go to the emergency room of the hospital in your area and see how many people speak English without a Hispanic accent.
What Rubio doesn’t want you to think about is that it’s every person reading this article who is paying for the Section 8 housing, welfare, and all healthcare services from birth to diapers to infant formula to even clothing for illegal alien babies and children. It is you and I as taxpayers who are providing the special education needs illegals require and that are increasing the property taxes and school taxes each and every year. It is illegal aliens who are driving the cost of auto and property insurance up in many areas nationwide. It is illegal aliens who are raping, murdering, stealing, selling drugs, and who are establishing the most violent gangs in our country.
Walk into a WalMart and observe how these people are spending our tax dollars. Rubio doesn’t want you to think about how the burgeoning underground economy created by illegals is stealing trillions of dollars from you and I even as it enhances the economy of the countries of origin these illegal aliens come from. Go into your local WalMart or any store that has banking services, i.e., cash cards etc., and see how many Hispanics are wiring money to families outside of the United States.

Rubio is morally opprobrious and he is easily the most disingenuous GOP candidate in the race this year, but those characteristics are perfectly consistent with the character of both Rubio and the GOP.
Politifact Florida in partnership with the Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald found that Rubio tells the truth in his campaign ads, statements, and on his website approximately only 13 percent of the time. Aggregating the other numbers shows that 65 percent of the time, Rubio is either outright lying or at best, knowingly making statements that are less than true.
Rubio’s record on being pro amnesty has been straightforward and unchanging since he arrived on the political scene. When Rubio served in the Florida House of Representatives, Arturo Vargas, the executive director for the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials applauded his blocking legislation that sought to clamp down on illegals saying: “We were very proud of his work as Speaker of the [Florida] House [of Representatives].”
Ed Martin, in a February 5, 2016 briefing letter to Phyllis Schlafly, wrote: “To win the 2010 Tea Party Wave, Rubio ran as the anti-amnesty candidate despite an aggressive pro-amnesty record. (See: The ‘Big Con’ Begins; eagleforum.org) Martin in painstaking detail methodically pointed out Rubio’s true record.
Martin noted: “In 2006, Rubio even voted for a bill that would have allowed the children of illegal [aliens] to pay the same tuition rates at Florida colleges as residents.” But when running for the Senate in 2010, Rubio chose to lie about his eight year record of pushing and advocating amnesty while in the Florida House and painted the then Florida Governor Crist as the villain calling for “an unearned path to citizenship.” This is no different from what Rubio is doing today.
The unmitigated gall with which Rubio dismisses his pursuit of amnesty is as pernicious as it is shocking. For example, Rubio is telling everyone who will listen that: “he wants a border fence and a visa tracking system,” when the truth is that he voted against both.
Julia Hahn writing for Breitbart News exposed Rubio’s grievous mendacity. Hahn wrote: “Rubio’s comments, however, conflict with several crucial votes he cast on the Gang of Eight bill that he co-authored with Chuck Schumer, which was endorsed by [the radial Marxist Hispanic group] La Raza, President Obama, and the Chamber of Commerce. The legislation would have issued more than 30 million green cards in ten years.” (Marco Rubio Says He Wants Border Fence, Visa Tracking System, But Voted Against Both To Pass Gang of Eight Bill; 8/6/2015; breitbart.com)
Rubio is acting like a petulant little child caught stealing money from his mother’s purse as he lashes out at Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. After all how dare they point out his career as an amnesty pimp?
