Marco Rubio Sunrail Flip Flop
Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio used to be for Sunrail. That was before stimulus money was going to be used for Sunrail. Rubio couldn't resist an opportunity to bash President Barack Obama for political gain. Rubio released a statement announcing his stance against Sunrail.
In a statement from his campaign today: "We should be wary of all the promises floating around Tallahassee about how much this latest round of government spending will create lasting jobs and prosperity. Rail projects have merit as transportation and infrastructure policy. But selling SunRail as a job issue, as Charlie Crist, has chosen to do, is a stretch. If the nearly $800 billion Obama-Crist stimulus plan didn't create the jobs they promised, how can we believe a new train system is going to live up to its promises?
"In addition, I disagree with Governor Crist's claim that he doesn't care where the money come from to pay for this project. I care a lot, because it's coming from borrowed and printed money that is ultimately coming from my children and their generation."
Rubio used fearmongering to make the baseless claim that Obama and Gov. Charlie Crist support homeless sex offenders. As Florida House Speaker, Rubio supported bills being published in English and Spanish. Rubio changed his position when he became a Senate candidate. Rubio doesn't have conservative principles. He is a politician enslaved to poll numbers and conservative talking points.
