Rubio plies the rubber chicken circuit



House Speaker Marco Rubio is not sitting idle during the property tax stalemate with the Senate. The Miami Republican traveled to Sarasota on Thursday to speak before the Tiger Bay Club there. Today he is scheduled to do the same in Volusia County. The appearances allow Rubio to talk about his signature issue and, perhaps just important, boost his statewide name ID.

"I think the Senate is doing what they should do," Rubio said, according to a report in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. "They are taking their time. They're looking at our ideas and figuring out if they can make them better or if they can change them."

"Not doing anything," he said, "is not an option."
