Fighting for Florida

Every year on the fourth Thursday in November, most Americans set aside their demanding jobs and busy schedules to celebrate their many blessings. Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday on which we show our gratitude for family, friends and this great nation.

On Thursday, Senator Rubio met with more than 50 of his constituents who signed up to join him for coffee and snacks at his D.C. office. We thank them for venturing to the nation’s capital and spending some time discussing issues of interest to them with the Senator, his staff and fellow Floridians.  

Pictures from the constituent coffee are available below:

While we continue to enjoy the many freedoms this great country has to offer, let us remember that freedom is not free. It requires constant vigilance and sacrifice in its defense. And so this Monday, we honor those men and women who have selflessly and courageously served in our armed forces.
It is with great concern that I call on the international community and the Obama Administration to appeal for the release of Cuban rapper Angel Yunier Remón Arzuaga, also known as “El Crítico” (“The Critic”), who is in life-threatening condition in a Cuban jail for using his lyrics to protest against the Cuban regime. His unjust incarceration and the regime’s indifference to his frail condition should be a lesson to all Americans that Cuba is not an exotic vacation destination, but a place where people are suffering very tragic repercussions for trying to express themselves.

ObamaCare Problems?
Today marks the one year anniversary of the imprisonment of U.S. citizen Saeed Abedini by the Iranian government. Saeed Abedini is a Christian pastor who was arrested last year while building orphanages in Iran. On January 27, 2013, he was unjustly sentenced to eight years in prison on charges of "planting house churches that are intended to undermine national security." Pastor Abedini has spent the last year in the notorious Evin Prison receiving regular beatings which has resulted in severe internal bleeding. In August, Pastor Abedini's appeal to reduce his sentence was declined by the Tehran Court of Appeals despite international pressure.
