Sen. Marco Rubio complained about how ‘they’ can fix South Florida’s gas shortage, but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz called Rubio out because he works for the state and might be doing something.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted a response to Rubio:
The senator said there is no way without the governor’s phone number. Try calling him! Find out what the problems are! Call the manager! Give people specific updates!

Marco Rubio doesn’t just work for government. Sen. Rubio is the top federal official representing the state of Florida. Rubio is the senior US senator from Florida.
The gas shortage in South Florida is something to work on. It is his responsibility to do something. Rubio can pick up the phone, call Gov. Ron DeSantis, wherever he is, and get federal assistance and relief for the people of South Florida.
One of the favorite tricks Republicans like to play is to blame each other and feel helpless in times of crisis. DeSantis is directly responsible for the problems in South Florida, but Rubio isn’t a bystander just watching someone do something.
To Rubio pretending they are not part of the government is a lie and an insult.
It’s also a load of BS, and Rep. Ocasio-Cortz called him out on it.
