Protest Held Outside Marco Rubio's Office

DORAL, FL -- Some Floridians are not happy with Senator Marco Rubio.

About a hundred folks demonstrated outside the Republican senator's office in Doral -- a day after he voted against the president's job plan.

The 447-billion-dollar bill failed to get the 60 votes needed to proceed.
The bill included a tax increase on the wealthy, an expansion of a current payroll tax cut and an extension of jobless benefits, among other things.

Rubio says he opposed the bill because it was nearly identical to President Obama's first job-creation effort, which he says failed miserably.

The protest was organized by the group "One-Miami." The group says Rubio has no real solution for the state's economic problems.
