What it Cost the NRA to Buy Senators' Votes. By Geniusofdespair

A minority in the U.S. Senate voted to block gun reform. Here is how much money they received from the NRA in exchange for their vote against common sense reforms.

Marco Rubio comes cheap.

What about the 15 Demorats?

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate on Wednesday shot down Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s proposal to ban 157 makes and models of assault weapons.

The proposal failed 60-40 with 15 Democrats, including Colorado Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, crossing party lines to oppose the bill and one Republican — Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill. — voting for it. Sen. Angus King of Maine was the lone independent to vote no. Sixty votes were required for passage.

Marco Rubio sure does come cheap. Rubio is highlighted because he is the senator/representation from Florida. He needs to represent Florida better. What else can we expect when he makes the comment that Jessie Helms was his mentor and he believes in stars and bars not stars and stripes. He said this on MSNBC.

People lobbying for themselves --- You and me, don't stand a chance do we? We need to block all money flow and then put the bozos (elected officials and their funders) in jail when they start taking illegal dollars. Then we will start to send the message that the constituents matter.

In the case of Rubio, there is no substance. His decisions revolve totally around what is best for his career. He makes Machiavelli look like 'amateur hour'. I am just so embarrassed we have such a clown as our Senator. If you showed him polls that voters overwhelming supported politicians who eat dung, he would release the 'Recipes for Dung Eating Conservatives' and 'chow down' at a press conference....maybe the seeds of an idea?
