Marco Rubio has been criticizing Rand Paul for still running for his seat in the Senate while running for president at the same time, but South Carolina changed their rules to allow for this as much as I may agree with Rubio on this issue.

However, there are many people complaining about Sen. Marco Rubio's refusal to show up to work and vote, and Rand Paul took him head on by telling him he should resign from his job in Congress.

Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul took a heavy swipe at rival Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) on missing key votes in the Senate, joining critics who have accused Rubio of failing to do his day job as he shores up support for his White House bid.

“The difference between Marco Rubio and I is I show up for work. He’s missed about a third to a half of his votes this year,” Paul (Ky.) said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. “We have the biggest vote of the whole year, voting on a trillion dollars' worth of spending, and he didn’t show up.”

“Yeah, I think he ought to resign or give his pay back,” Paul added, echoing statements he made about Rubio’s absence on Friday.
