Rubio on DHS: Then and Now
Typical politician Marco Rubio says one thing in Washington, and another thing when campaigning in front of Republican primary voters in New Hampshire.
THEN: “We have to fund Homeland Security. We can't let Homeland Security shut down.” [2/19/15]
NOW: “I don't believe we should pass a clean DHS bill.” [2/23/15]
Just like he did so disastrously on his immigration bill, this is nothing more than a politics-as-usual flip-flop to appease right-wing primary voters. It didn’t work then and it won’t work now. Rubio is playing political games with our national security, and recklessly risking another shutdown over immigration. So much for the “Republican Savior.”
