MoveOn to protest Rubio - while supporting his debt vote



Yesterday, e-mailed supporters and urged them to protest outside Marco Rubio's district office in Miami over the debt ceiling battle: ...At noon on Tuesday—whether there's a deal in place or if we're about to default on our nation's bills—we're protesting at hundreds of GOP offices around the country. We'll show our outrage that they've held our whole economy hostage to force cuts to vital programs and to protect tax breaks for corporations and millionaires...

Then today came this Tweet from MoveOn: Survey says: Vast majority of @MoveOn members oppose debt deal. Call Congress, 202-224-3121, and tell your Rep to vote No.
Maybe they missed it, but Rubio said he'll vote No. Bill Nelson will vote Yes.
