Most are Manufactured Senators

Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show; The Washington Post

They aren't even Senators, none of them, in that a Senator should represent the state who sent him to Washington. Instead they are perverted Representatives, competing with the legitimate representatives of "the People" to see who can bribe you with your own money for votes. Any elected 'servant' is going to pander to who he is elected by, regardless what he says he will do. States have become spectators, they don't actually exist in the "union".

So, they're ALL phony.
