Breaking: Marco Rubio Skips Four Committee Hearings In A Single Day
Marco Rubio has earned a reputation for being an “absentee Senator” with one of the worst attendance records in the Senate. But yesterday he outdid himself. Rubio failed to show up to four different committee hearings, setting a personal record for the most hearings skipped in a single day this year.
“Marco Rubio spent more time promoting himself in interviews yesterday than showing up to do the job Floridians elected him to do. No wonder he’s making headlines for his abysmal attendance record — Marco Rubio simply doesn’t show up for work,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox.
Rubio missed three Foreign Relations Committee hearings covering ambassador nominations and U.S. global leadership, as well as a Small Business Committee hearing. Rubio hasn’t shown up to a hearing of the Small Business Committee since 2020.
