Rubio Returns Just in Time to Do Nothing and Leave Again

Written by SK Ashby

Sometimes-senator and failed GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-FL) marked his glorious return to the Senate yesterday where he will continue to not do his job.

Rubio told reporters there's no point in moving forward on Merrick Garland's nomination to the Supreme Court.

I mean, I don’t see the point of it,” Rubio said of the nomination. “I know enough about his record to know I wouldn’t support him and I know enough about the position in general to be able to say, number one, I don’t think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this president’s term — I would say that if it was a Republican president — and number two, even if this was the third year of this president’s term, this is not someone I’d support.”

"I mean, I don't see the point of it" could sum up the entire Republican approach to governance.

As it so happens, Rubio only returned to the Senate for one single day because the Senate has recessed for the next two weeks of Spring break.
