“Rubio’s only accomplishment in Congress has been to betray the American people. His record on immigration and Obamatrade demonstrate that there is nothing Rubio will not say – and no lie Rubio will not tell – in order to deliver for his donors.

Marco Rubio is Chuck Schumer’s amnesty pitchman. Rubio was hired to shove amnesty through the Senate by putting his face on Obama’s bill.”

  1. I like the line about Rubio being ¡Jeb! without honesty. A warmonger for Israel and a Hispanic supremacist. Let’s hope he folds quickly.

  2. Yup. Rubio is not that bright. He stumbles rather quickly, when he’s forced off the carefully prepared Kosher scripts. He’s a Pool Boy, and that’s all.

    The Trumpenkrieg keep steaming on.

  3. Rubio tells the truth to “his people” in Spanish and lies to the (mostly European-American) Republican voters in English. Another fascinating bit of multicultural politics.

  4. Great website. Bumper stickers, t-shirts, and signs should be printed with nothing more than “” and displayed prominently. As of now his candidacy doesn’t seem to have momentum, but with Bush fading fast, he may become the next hope for the donor class.

  5. Marco Rubio is what he is at the end of the day and that is a Cubano. Cubanos should govern CUBA. White Southerners should govern Dixie and who the hell else can divide up the rest of the pie.

  6. The Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol (jew) is hoping Rubio or Fiorina leads the ticket.

    If Trump somehow gets the nod the Neocohen grand pooah threatens to go third party.

    The Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol predicted Thursday that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina will eventually lead the Republican ticket, and that Donald Trump would fade.

    “Now there’s this Trump thing going on, I gather he’s going to do OK in the polls for a while, but he’s not going to be the nominee. We’ll be fine,” Kristol told MSNBC. “Rubio-Fiorina or a Fiorina-Rubio ticket’s going to win in November everyone should calm down.”

    After MSNBC’s panelists prodded him into acknowledging Trump has a chance of winning the nomination, Kristol indicated it might be time for him to leave the GOP if Trump becomes its standard-bearer.

    “If all the other candidates remain as pathetic as they’ve been so far, I suppose it’s conceivable he’ll [Trump] be the nominee and then we’ll have to support a third party,” Kristol said.

  7. How is this possible? Rubio and Bush do anything to stop it? Or did they further the programs?

    I know many people who worked at low paying jobs who don’t get the SS and benefits these freaking parasites do.

    Our leaders should be rounded up and executed!

    Cubans retire to Florida – with help from U.S. taxpayers

    More Cubans are coming to Florida in their golden years to retire, able to tap U.S. government assistance even though they never lived or worked here.

    The number of Cubans arriving over the age of 60 grew fivefold since 2010, according to state refugee data. At least 185 made the crossing in their 80s or 90s.

    Unlike most other immigrants, Cubans qualify immediately for food stamps and Medicaid. If they are over 65 with little or no income, they also can collect a monthly check of up to $733 in Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

    “They’re getting cheap apartments, food stamps,” said Cuban-born attorney Pedro Fuentes-Cid of Tampa. “They tell their friends in Cuba, and they come over.”

    The United States makes it possible under a humanitarian policy of treating Cubans who arrive as refugees. Elderly immigrants interviewed by the Sun Sentinel said they came primarily to be with family, met the aid qualifications and are grateful for the help.

    Jose Angel Rodriguez immigrated at 81 to join his daughter. He now lives in Miami on food stamps, Medicaid and SSI. “It wasn’t that bad in Cuba,” he said. “But here, I’m better.”

    Elisa Diaz came at 75 to be near her three children in the U.S. She lives in Miami in a subsidized apartment, gets food stamps and $700 a month in SSI. The benefits, she said, are much better than pensions in Cuba — about $7 a month. “I have an American flag in my house,” she said. “I’m happy. I want to be an American citizen.”

    Cubans are eligible for government assistance for up to seven years after they arrive in the U.S., and longer if they become citizens. Most elderly immigrants from other nations must first become citizens — a process that takes at least five years — to receive Supplemental Security Income.

    The special status that Cubans have enjoyed for decades has helped make Miami-Dade top in the nation among large counties in the percentage of people over 65 collecting SSI, the Sun Sentinel found in an analysis of Census and Social Security data. In 2013 Miami-Dade had more seniors on SSI than all other Florida counties combined.

    Cubans know about the government program before they leave the island, said Jose Rolon-Rivera, a former Social Security judge in Miami.

    “For sure, they’re very aware,” he said. “All they need to do is say they just came from Cuba, they’re elderly.”

    Some move in with grown children or relatives already here and receive U.S. aid even though their families have the means to support them, according to annual Census surveys.

    A couple with a toddler in south Miami-Dade County, with a combined annual income of $125,000, brought over the husband’s 67-year-old father, who then collected food stamps and $8,400 a year in SSI.
    A Miami Lakes woman and her husband took in her aging parents, who qualified for $7,200 a year in SSI. The family’s household income: $144,200.
    Congress created Supplemental Security Income in 1972 as a safety net for disabled adults and children, and poor seniors. Its use mushroomed over the next two decades, particularly among immigrants.

    Miami No. 1 in elderly on welfare
    Miami-Dade leads the nation among large* counties in the percentage of people over 65 receiving Supplemental Security Income, a federal welfare program for poor seniors. About two-thirds of Miami’s elderly SSI recipients are Cuba natives, who are granted unique access to U.S. welfare. Percentage of people over 65 on SSI:

    SSI had become so popular among elderly Chinese in California that they considered it a right of immigration and viewed it nonchalantly, like getting a library card, a University of California professor testified during a 1996 welfare reform debate. Congress cut new immigrants off of SSI but made an exception for Cubans and grandfathered in some other immigrants who were already here or had long work histories in the U.S.

    By 2013, Cubans were the second-largest group of noncitizens over 65 collecting SSI, behind Mexicans. The monthly payments are considered a vital source of income for many elderly Cubans, and Congress, at the behest of Florida’s influential delegation, has protected their eligibility.

    The aid may not be enough to draw Cubans to the U.S. but is considered an entitlement by many when they arrive.

    It also causes resentment among some other immigrants.

    Lydia Perez worked for 45 years cleaning offices and working in a hotel kitchen but can’t afford to visit her native Dominican Republic. She sees Cuban neighbors in her Hialeah subsidized-housing complex receiving aid and returning to Cuba for visits.

    “They come, they get the money, and they go to Cuba,” said Perez, 81. “I see people who have never worked here in the U.S. and have the same things, the same benefits I have, or more.”
