Reid Fires At Rubio: Florida Taxpayers Should Sue Him For Not Doing His Job

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) called on constituents to sue Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for not doing his job Tuesday.

“I feel that Marco Rubio should be sued to pay back all the money that the federal government paid him while he was off playing around, running for president,” Reid told reporters, according to Politico. “Not only did he take those checks, cash every one of them, every month, he was never here and the state of Florida was missing a senator during that period of time.”

It was just the latest Democratic burn against Rubio, who announced last week he will run for re-election to stay in the Senate.

When he was running for president, Rubio was often criticized for missing votes and prioritizing his campaign. Those attacks have resurfaced since he announced his re-election.

“Marco Rubio, in my opinion, owes the American taxpayer money and owes the people of the state of Florida some time,” Reid said, according to Politico.
