No shit. Don’t fall for the GOP, Frank Luntz, talking points BS: They don’t want to call it the “Rubio-Blunt” Amendment because the GOP doesn’t want Marco’s name associated with the religious-opt out bill that he helped to write —so that they can put him on the V.P. ticket to pander to Latinos (watch).
It’s an old trick —try to erase the history/association (in the same manner Rush Limbaugh just scrubbed his websites of any history of him trashing Sandra Fluke). The GOP, Rubio, and Limbaugh are all thinking about the future and how they’ll be remembered. So help history remember Marco Rubio properly —as the co-author of the “Your employer shouldn’t have to insure you” bill. Don’t let him off the hook by calling it the Blunt Amendment. It’s the Rubio-Blunt Amendment.
