If you can tie your personal story of building a career and family into how it could be impacted by the looming fiscal cliff that remains a political football in D.C., U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Miami, wants to hear from you. 

And your story could be used in the continuing debate over America's fiscal future.

Rubio has set up a page on his Senate webpage for people to explain "how important upward mobility and a vibrant middle class are to our country.”

“There has been a lot of talk in Washington about the fiscal cliff, but there isn’t enough talk about what the fiscal cliff actually means to people who are trying to work their way up,” Rubio wrote supporters on Tuesday.

“I’ve heard so many stories and I want to continue to be your voice in the Senate, but more importantly, to give you a seat at the table. I want to make sure Americans feel empowered to achieve and make their lives better financially.”

But first. . . . . Shame! Shame, Marco Rubio! . . . for your running scared to the far right yesterday in your vote against the Disability Treaty.

You know better, you have some intelligence - - but hold your face in shame to 89 year-old Bob Dole in his wheelchair out of the hospital who asked you for a yes vote on the floor of the Senate yesterday. . . . hold your head in shame to the moderates in your party - John McCain, Scott Brown and Olympia Snow - who asked you the same, for veterans . . . . . Shame, Shame for running to instead support bizarre Tea Party conspiracy theories falsely claiming that this Disabled Rights Treaty allows the UN to take over the sovereignty of the U.S. . . . . .sadly, you're showing you're nothing but a self-serving far right wing politician pandering to the falsehoods of the Tea Party in exchange for their future support . . . . . . buying into their lies about the UN. . . .buying into their lies about science. . . .buying into their lies about Obama . . . .buying into their lies about Obama Care . . . so why should we even entertain your opinions about taxes and the Fiscal Cliff when you even lie about whether you ever voted for a tax increase? . . . . .

Pathetic . . . .

Frank, please educate yourself regarding agenda 21 before you go off on Senator Rubio. You sound like a moron.

I've read the entire Agenda 21 document and analyzed it, have you? I've analyzed the many adverse impacts of partisan legislative bills like Alabama's anti-agenda 21 bill and many other similar draft bills around the country - have you? . . . .Though not . . . .anyone who believes that Agenda 21 (which by the way, ONLY you have mentioned here - that wasn't in my original comments) will allow the UN to take over the soverignty of the U.S. is lacking a few logic brain cells, or is just a pure follow-along partisan . . . .zoning, planning, smart growth and sustainability concepts have a long history of development in this country predating Agenda 21 . . . . and only wacky conspiracy theories can convolutedly convert that voluntary document into a takeover by the UN . . . . . or a Disabled Treaty . . . . .

Come back when you grow up and this isn't your "first time" commenting under this alias . . . . .anywhere . . . . .

Pathetic . . . . .

Frank, you need to read the Agenda 21/Sustainable Development UN Charter AGAIN. You REALLY don't know what you're talking about.

Also, before flapping jaw, try reading the US Constitution as well. Treaties supercede Constitutional law of land. Which means with each treaty ratified by Senate, WE lose sovereignty.
