“Rubio didnt know that this new item was put into the bill, thus negating the previous law.”
This new item does not negate the previous law. This new item would be in addition to the previous law. If this new provision passed (either in the Rubio bill or in some other law), forging one passport would still be a federal felony (”Forgery or false use of passport”), but forging three or more would now be a separate, additional federal felony (”Trafficking in passports”). Rubio’s answer was correct - CNS was wrong.
They all make me sick!
Rubio could've come out and said whoa pardners, let's go back into committee, review this bill and see what's in it. But nooooooo, once bought, he stays bought, as Rubio is an honest politician. Rubio was all in and he went along.
For someone, who thought he had a future in the Republican Party, this was stupid, stupid, stupid and everyone was telling Rubio, this was stupid.
But Marco Polo Rubio knew better, he could find the gold nugget in that pile of dung.
But Schumer, who is not an honest politician, lied. There was no nugget, just BS all the way down. Rubio, at best, got rolled. In reality, he went along. Someone sold him that this was a good idea. I say hire that man, who sold Rubio, he's a great salesman.
CNS asked McCain, they ought to go on and ask the other 2 Republicans on the Gang of 8, the aptly named Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Lindsey Grahamnesty (P-Media).
Rubio was going to vote for the bill, so he could “find out what’s in it” ( a la Obamacare ).
