Rubio: Democrats Should Have Pulled All-Nighter for Americans Struggling in Obama Economy

In response to the Senate Democrats’ all-nighter on Monday evening, when they pushed for a focus in Washington on the left’s climate change and global warming agenda, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said they should have focused instead on American workers struggling because of Obamacare and other liberal policies.

“I wish there would be an all-nighter for the men and women of Florida who are struggling to find a job,” Rubio said in an appearance on an Orlando television station on Tuesday. “I wish there would be an all-nighter for the people who have lost their health insurance because of Obamacare. I wish there would be an all-nighter for people whose businesses may close because of the economy isn’t getting better. And I wish there would be an all-nighter for students who went to college and now [owe] a bunch of money in loans, but can’t find a job in this stagnant economy,” he said.

On Monday evening until 9 a.m. Tuesday, 28 Senate Democrats and the two liberal independents in the Senate–including Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)rotated speaking on the Senate floor in shifts to put a focus on the environmentalist agenda. Red state Democrats like Sens. Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA)–each of whom faces the likelihood they will lose their seat in November in a seemingly imminent Republican wave because of Obamacare–avoided the environmentalist discussion.
