On Monday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was confronted by a reporter from the Miami Herald as he was walking to his car on why he hypocritically chose to accept a $10,000 subsidy offered by President Obama’s health reform.

His choreographed answer didn’t satisfy the reporter, who pressed him to explain why he was accepting the subsidy while other influential members of his Republican caucus had denied it on grounds of principle.

In September, Rubio joined Tea Party extremists in a 22-hour filibuster of the budget bill in an attempt to force a vote to defund the Obamacare, setting the stage for the government shutdown (which he supported).

Apparently, although he bashes the law day in and day out, Marco Rubio loves the new benefits of Obamacare offered to him and his family.
