Take A Tour Of Marco Rubio’s $675,000 ‘Working Class’ Home
While Sen. Rubio’s lip smacking and water gulping is getting the bulk of the coverage one line from his SOTU response stood out to me more than others. Below is the text of Rubio’s claim of living in the same “working class neighborhood” that he grew up in.
Tampa Bay Times
Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy.”—-Marco Rubio, Feb. 12, 2013.
One thing I’ll say about Marco….he’s got some serious onions. For those of you who don’t know this is the same guy who had to answer for charging up to $5,000 to his state party credit card for new flooring in this “working class” home. Seriously I could not believe he brought this up. Here’s his so called “working class” home that he recently put on the market for $675k. He put this on the market because he plans to permanently move his family out of the state he represents and to Washington DC, but I digress.
