Rubio responds to Boca constituent’s ‘Knock off the stupid stuff’ advice on Obamacare

by George Bennett | August 21st, 2013

As he spends much of the August recess calling for Congress to cut off funding for the federal health care law, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio‘s latest installment of “Marco’s Constituent Mailbox” includes an e-mail from Theresa of Boca Raton, who says she likes the federal health care law and its provision that allows her to keep her 24-year-old son on her insurance policy.

“Knock off the stupid stuff. Do something worthwhile instead of trying to defeat policies that help the middle class,” says the e-mail that Rubio reads aloud. He then argues that the health care law will hurt the middle class.

Rubio says September will be key for stopping the health care law and he says President Barack Obama will be to blame if a standoff leads to a government shutdown.

“Perhaps our last best chance to put a brake on this Obamacare disaster is in September when we take up the short-term budget. And the only thing I’m saying is we should not shut down the government. We should fund government. The only thing we shouldn’t fund as part of that budget is Obamacare,” says Rubio. “I think it’s unfortunate that the president is saying if you don’t fund Obamacare I’ll shut down the government. That’s an unreasonable position.”

    A mobile phone mast will be concealed in a old factory chimney. This chimney is adjacent to a public footpath in a residential area. Any scaffolding may prevent the footpath. Men working expense will have to corden off the footpath for health and safety factors. Can local authority permission be required to stop the footpath? The council rejected the original mast program but were over-ruled on appeal. Thanking you ahead of time for any info..
