Yesterday I got a chance to watch Marco Rubio, Florida’s
Republican senator, praise small business at a reception held by
the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). Those
looking for Rubio to tip his hand about his vice presidential
prospects came away disappointed.
At one point, Rubio said he hoped to help small business in the
years he had left in the Senate. A member of the audience asked
whether he was in fact measuring his time remaining in the Senate
in years rather than months. Rubio replied, “Look, I love serving
in the United States Senate. I know that sounds strange, but that’s
the place I think I can make a difference.” He chided the Senate’s
lack of urgency, calling it “frustrating.”
NFIB joined the multi-state lawsuit against President Obama’s
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A Supreme Court ruling
is expected next month.
