A Few More Ideas For Marco



Incoming House Speaker Marco Rubio, R-Miami, on Thursday will convene a two-day conference in Orlando to discuss his "100 Ideas" project. But Democrats think a few things have been overlooked. Incoming House Democratic leader Dan Gelber sent Rubio a letter Wednesday suggesting some other "innovative" ideas, such as fixing the hurricane insurance crisis, passing campaign finance reform and increasing teacher salaries.

"I have little expectation that any of these ideas – though clearly innovative – will be seriously considered by your party, but I did want to forward them to you on the outside chance that your colleagues may have experienced a change in heart," Gelber wrote. Full letter is in comments.
