Some Floridians are not happy with Senator Marco Rubio.

About 100 people demonstrated outside the senator's office after he voted against the president's job plan.

The $447 billion bill failed to get the votes it needed to proceed.

The bill includes a tax increase on the wealthy, an expansion of a current payroll tax cut and an extension of jobless benefits.

Rubio says he opposed the bill because it was nearly identical to the president's first job-creation effort, which he says failed miserably.
