    GOP candidate in florida Marco Rubio has been found to be abusing using his GOP amex card. Donor money is only supposed to be spent on elections but Rubio spent it on such things as his family car. according to credit card bills he spent it on wine and other personal expenses. all in all in his 2 year stint as florida's speaker of the house he racked up just under 110,000 dollars on his GOP amex card.

    Obama isn't a big spender by choice he has to fix the problems the policies you love cause.

    this guy how ever was a self center dick spending donor money for personal things.


    Obama and him are nothing alike. but ofcourse your trying to reflect your sides flaws onto those trying to fix the problems.

    Obama's spending is making the problems worse. It distorts the feedback mechanisms of the market, leaves less wealth in the hands of the people, creates protectionism and irresponsibility, and diminishes liberty.

    First of all, we have establish that principle is more important than utility. Agree or disagree? Do you think that it is worth it to pursue "beneficial" policies, if they will result in the diminishing of liberty? Is Nazi Germany okay, if it means more employment?

    Yes or no?

    more employment in the defense sector?

    that seemed to be the mantra of the previous admin

    No shocker there. What's the point of continuing to tolerate political parties of any kind?

    Anyone who believes GOP is fiscally responsible is sadly ignorant of the last 10 years.
