  1. He said everyone should own a gun to protect themselves from criminals and terrorists, and would shut down “any place where radicals are being inspired.” Except #MAGA rallies.
  2. He denies human beings are responsible for climate change.
  3. His previous tax plan proposal would have provided the top 1 percent over $200,000 in tax cuts per year, and would have completely eliminated taxes on capital gains. That’s on par with Donald Trump’s ideology of protecting the haves.
  4. He wanted to freeze federal spending at 2008 levels for everything except defense.
  5. He wanted a permanent U.S. presence in Iraq, and supported ending the nuclear deal with Iran.
  6. He voted to repeal Obamacare every opportunity he had to protect his constituents.
  7. We have no way to know where he is on immigration because he’s flip-flopped — first working on legislation to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and then firmly anti-legalization.
  8. He’s lied about his personal history – saying his parents were Cuban exiles although they left Cuba before the revolution.
  9. He was careless with official money. When serving in the Florida House he charged personal expenses (including a $130 haircut) to a Republican Party credit card intended for official use.
  10. And although elected to the Senate as a Tea Party favorite, he’s now the establishment’s favorite Republican.

Similarly his top donors are Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, and hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer – along with Koch Industries.

Little Marco always jockeying for positions that serve his incessant need to elevate his status quo, while neglecting the very people he serves.
