OK, now I am little more free to mention that I spent a chunk of the past year doing paid analysis on Puerto Rico.
During that time, Senator Rubio went from an extremely helpful proponent of extending U.S. public bankruptcy law to the island to a complete opponent.
His opposition made no sense. The bill would not have protected the island government; only counties and public corporations. In other words, it would have given Puerto Rico the same treatment as any U.S. state. Considering as Senator Rubio supports making them a state, it is hard to see the rationale behind denying them the same protection now. Other than, well, the recent receipt of campaign contributions from creditors to the island government.
That point marked when I got off the Marco Rubio bandwagon. (Not that I was a supporter; I am a Democrat. But I thought he was a very reasonable conservative.) His October tax proposal pushed me further away. And now, it seems, that he advocates giving away the store to the financial industry. Click the link; it is very good. And it draws some comparisons with Jeb Bush from which Rubio comes away looking pretty bad.
I am tempted to say, in fact, that with a GOP congress, Donald Trump might make a better president.
OK, talk me out of that.
