Rep. Demings (D-FL) calls out Sen. Rubio (R-FL) claiming she never passed a bill: “There was a time you did not lie."

Representative Val Demings, a Democrat from Florida, called out Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida, for claiming she never passed a bill during the Florida Senate debate.

RUBIO: “She's been in Congress for over half a decade, she's never passed a bill; not PPP, not anything, not a single bill she's past has ever become law. I'm proud of the fact we’ve saved millions of jobs. I'm proud of the fact we did it in a bipartisan way.

DEMINGS: “That's not true. I know the Senator, look, and I'm really disappointed in you Marco Rubio, because I think there was a time when you did not lie in order to win. I don't know what happened to you. You know that is not true. My first term in this, in the the United States house, I passed legislation to help law enforcement officers with mental health programs. Your first term in the Senate, you voted to turn Medicare into basically to abolish it and then turn it into an underfunded voucher program. And then you gave the biggest tax break to the richest of the rich and said you'd pay for it with cuts to Social Security and Medicare.”
