Senator Rubio Votes Against Violence Against Women Act

Source: CBS Miami

WASHINGTON (CBSMiami) – Just hours ahead of stepping in front of the cameras to give the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address; Senator Marco Rubio voted against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.


The VAWA passed the Senate, despite Rubio’s no vote, by a 78-22 margin. All 22 of those who voted against the reauthorization of the bill were men and included not only Rubio but also Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The original Violence Against Women Act was passed in 1994, but expired in 2011 as Congress’ partisan divide grew. The bill seeks to help victims of domestic violence, stalking, and other crimes. The reauthorization added new protections for LGBT and Native American victims, according to the Huffington Post.

1. Rubio is so vile, its sickening.

I'm glad VAWA passed anyway. And he's a father to two or 3 daughters.. you'd think he will be more compassionate.

13. As my right wing s.i.l. would say "violence against women isn't the ONLY issue..."

only she said it about abortion back during the 2004 election. And she has 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters!

I just shook my head...

6. Let's see

He's anti science, anti choice, anti union, anti federal relief for disaster struck areas, anti woman, anti people with disabilities, anti affordable healthcare, etc.

Is there anything this fucking weasel is for that actually helps people?

15. He's the same as the rest of the Pukes.

"Rock star", my ass. The GOP apparently thinks that not being a white guy is enough. Too bad for them The Rube lacks actual substance and human decency.
