Hundreds Protest Rubio's Vote Against Jobs Bill


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.
