Marco Rubio Busted For Lying About Why He Voted Against Federal Hurricane Relief Aid. "For you, it's no go, but for me it's YES!"
October 3, 2022

Marco Rubio is a hypocrite who can't keep his stories straight.

As Business Insider noted, "In the span of a week, Marco Rubio voted against hurricane relief, asked for additional hurricane relief, and praised the Biden administration's hurricane relief."

Dana Bash confronted Senator Marco Rubio's additional hypocrisy, federal aid for Florida after Hurricane Ian while refusing to fund other states facing the same natural disasters.

Senator Rubio had previously voted against Hurricane monies because he claimed there was unwarranted pork hidden within the bills.

Bash surmised his position and then asked a "why you?" question.

"I know you supported a smaller version, but why should other senators vote for relief for your state when you didn't vote for a package to help theirs?" Bash asked.

"Oh, I've always voted for hurricane and disaster relief," Rubio lied.

"What I didn't vote for in Sandy is because they included a roof for a museum in Washington, D.C., for fisheries in Alaska. It had been loaded up with things that had nothing to do with disaster relief," he said with a confident air of superiority.

"Sandy, unfortunately, they loaded it up," he stated.


The CNN host actually did her job and researched the Sandy bill before Rubio came on the show and proceeded to fact-check his lying ass.

"I read the congressional research service report last night. It sounds like the roof actually was damaged by the hurricane, " Bash said.

"And what happened in Alaska was the result of another disaster,' Bash said.


Both instances where Rubio called needed relief aid "pork" was completely wrong and completely necessary.

Bash then moved on, but this little debate is still crucial and important even if she didn't go all Hannity up in his grill.

Republicans like Rubio always scream about 'government spending' even when it is for natural disaster recovery. because they understand it helps the working class.

And then they lie about hurricane relief packages that they voted against.

Even the most staunch conservative should support helping a state that suffered through a hurricane, a tornado, or indeed, a pandemic. That's just basic "general welfare" as noted in the preamble to the Constitution.
