So, even though polls show that over 80 percent of all voters want to require mandatory background checks for internet and gun-show gun sales and prohibit those on the government’s “no fly list” from buying guns, Sen. Marco Rubio voted against all proposed legislation to accomplish this. How can an elected official justify voting against the wishes of a majority of his constituents?
Does he at least have an alternative to put forward that will satisfy those wishes? If not, then he definitely should not be reelected in November. I used to be registered Republican, now I am an independent and thoroughly disgusted with how the current Republican Party is acting.
If Hillary Clinton is elected in November, she will need majorities in both the House and Senate to get anything accomplished. I’m sick of the current Congressional deadlock and would like to see her get this chance.
