But a review of documents — including naturalization papers and other official records — reveals that the Florida Republican’s account embellishes the facts. The documents show that Rubio’s parents came to the United States and were admitted for permanent residence more than two-and-a-halfyears before Castro’s forces overthrew the Cuban government and took power on New Year’s Day 1959.
I don’t think that this will matter to Rubio’s core constituency: they are more pre-occupied with sloganeering and living in myths that make them comfortable than they are processing cognitive dissonance created by minutia like fact.
Rep. Paul Ryan has offered a plan that would make no changes whatsoever for anyone age 55 and older. I support it because, right now, it is the only plan out there that helps save Medicare. Democrats oppose it. Fine. But, if they have a better way to save Medicare, what are they waiting for to show us? What is their plan to save Medicare?
You’re not fooling anyone except the gullible or intellectually dishonest members of your constituencies, Sen. Rubio.
Your proposal (no changes for anyone who is 55 now) foretells your true intentions about how you would serve Florida in The Senate: you intend to stay there only a handful of terms at the most, then after Rome Is Burning, you’d parachute in to a comfy career as a lobbyist.
Considering that any counter proposal to the Ryan Plan
to dismantle for Medicare would have to go back to the House one way or another, a Democratic plan would be only Kabuki theater. You and your colleagues would pretend to listen and read what ever was proposed, then it would be placed in the circular file.
