Rubio, Meek Toe Party Lines in Blame Game

Friday, 22 Oct 2010 02:53 PM

Two of Florida’s three major candidates for the U.S. Senate — Republican former House Speaker Marco Rubio and Democratic State Rep. Kendrick Meek — addressed the state’s economy and unemployment situations in their battle to claim the post themselves. Rubio, who leads the pack of 10 candidates in the race, placed responsibility on his opponents — not only Meek but also Gov. Charlie Crist, running as an independent — in that they embraced the policies of President Barack Obama, which Rubio blames for Florida’s current status, according to Sunshine State News.

Meek blamed the problems on Republicans, mincing no words in his declaration that he’s “committed to . . . closing special tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas and repealing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.” Meek said Floridians can choose between someone who will stand up for the middle class or someone who will “turn back the clock” to the policies that “drove us into the ditch in the first place.”
