The most interesting thing Rubio said today? That leaving for 10 years to get green card (under current law) is more generous than his plan.

Here’s the Meet the Press video (“cheaper, faster, easier” remarks start at 5:10):
Quite frankly, it’ll be cheaper, faster, and easier to leave and wait 10 years than it will be to go through this process that we’ve designed.
Twitterers are skeptical:
@chucktodd does anyone actually believe that?

@conncarroll I have my doubts. It's quite the proclamation
