Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are focused on false issues, like the “fake voting rights crisis,” because they’re listening to out-of-touch, elitist staffers and have no interest in the problems facing average Americans, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says.

Democrat leaders are ignoring the country’s real problems in order to focus on the pet issues of a small group of radicals, Rubio says in a new video commentary:

“They’re focused on the ideas coming from these staffers that walk around, you know, with the fancy Swedish backpacks and have the laptops with the Bernie Sanders stickers on them – as if, somehow, that reflects the views of the broader country. That’s what they’re focused on.


“Look, it’s one thing when your leaders disagree on how to solve problem. But, what we have is something else. What we have are leaders who are ignoring the real problems and focused on fake problems that happen to be the pet issues of a small group of people.”

For the past three weeks, Congress has been consumed with Democrats’ fake voting rights crisis – an issue that doesn’t concern most Americans, because it’s never been easier to vote, Sen. Rubio says:

“You know why no one talks about that issue: because it doesn’t exist. Because it’s never been easier to register to vote. It’s never been easier to vote. In Florida, you can vote early. Anyone can vote by mail. You can vote on Election Day at your precinct during a 12-hour period on that day.”

But, Democrats are devoting their attention and efforts to fake concerns, because they’re catering to a radical political base that despises America and plays the race card against anyone who gets in their way, Rubio says:

“They’re focused on these fake problems – not on your problems, on these fake problems – because they’re not interested in your problems. They’re catering to a radical political base that they think they need to have a chance to even win any elections. They’re focused on these radicals that demand amnesty now and open borders.

“They’re using the hateful language of these radicals who say that America is inherently evil and anyone who disagrees with them is a racist.”
