By JAVIER MANJARRESApparently the Venezuela government is picking up where former dictator Hugo Chavez left off- by trampling on the country’s constitution. According to the Venezuelan constitution, the head of the legislature is to become the interim President in the event of the death of the President, not the current vice-president.
Senator Marco Rubio was quick to smack down the Venezuelan government’s abuse of power-
“The Obama Administration should immediately condemn this unconstitutional act and urge our democratic partners in the Western Hemisphere to do the same. In protest, we should cancel plans to send an official U.S. delegation to Venezuela. This is the least we can do to call attention to the disdain some Venezuelan officials have demonstrated towards their own constitutional order.”-Senator Rubio
