Tampa Bay Times Editorial Slams Marco Rubio for “Galling” Debt Ceiling Hypocrisy

Marco Rubio’s vote against funding the government and raising the debt ceiling on Monday night moved the country closer to a catastrophic default that would cost millions of jobs and threaten Floridians’ livelihoods. Now, a new Tampa Bay Times editorial is calling out Rubio’s vote for what it is: shameful, weak, and politically motivated hypocrisy.

As the editorial notes, Rubio was happy to raise the debt ceiling under Donald Trump. But in a “reckless and self-serving” attempt to score political points, he’s now refusing to pay for trillions of dollars in spending that he previously supported.
