Marco Rubio Skips Senate Hearing On Improving Health Care Services For Veterans
Marco Rubio failed to show up to a Senate Appropriations hearing today with top Department of Veterans Affairs officials discussing improvements to health care services for veterans. Rubio has skipped over 90% of Senate Appropriations Committee hearings this year, and hasn’t shown up to a single hearing since May.
“Marco Rubio barely shows up to work in the Senate, and even when he’s on Capitol Hill, he’s more focused on promoting himself than doing his job. Instead of showing up to a hearing to make sure our veterans are getting the care they need, Marco Rubio spent his morning going on cable news and posting videos from his Senate office to score political points. The Floridians who pay his six-figure salary deserve better,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox.
