Republican Definition of “Working Class Homes” on Display in Rubio’s Speech

Marco Rubio’s ‘Working Class’ Home Is For Sale For $675,000 (PHOTOS) – The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2013/02/13/marco-rubio-working-class-house-for-sale-675000_n_2681264.html

In his State of the Union rebuttal speech, Florida Senator Marco Rubio stressed his blue collar life in Miami. “Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in,” Rubio said, adding that his neighbors are retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare, workers rising early to pay the bills, and immigrants who have been stuck in poverty. Rubio failed to mention his “working class” pool home in West Miami is on the market for a whopping $675,000 — and he’s moving his family to Washington, D.C.

Sometimes word and facepalms fail to capture the absurdity or certain stances.
