  1. How in touch is Senator Rubio with those of us on limited incomes? I heard these comments he made on the Diane Rehm Show on July 19, 2012, on NPR.
    Rubio argued that private donations should support such an enterprise as NPR, and that plenty of outlets are available to house that ideology and format. He admitted, though, that he enjoys Rehm’s show and that NPR’s funding is low on the list of costs that should be cut.

    A caller pointed out the irony of Rubio’s position, saying, “He’s spending an entire hour on the show today.”

    Rubio countered that a half-century ago, a station like NPR might have been necessary, but “today there is no shortage of options” for news and opinion.

    “I have 300 stations on my satellite radio,” Rubio boasted.
