Senator Rubio Comments On The President’s Budget Proposal

Feb 13, 2012 | Comunicados de Prensa

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s budget proposal:

“The President’s budget is not serious and is just another disappointment from this White House. This budget is business as usual: more spending, higher debt, a refusal to save our entitlement programs from future bankruptcy and a slew of massive tax increases on the very job creators who we need to put Americans back to work.  The President is recklessly breaking his promise to cut the deficit in half during his first term, adding an unsustainable amount of debt for future generations.

“The President’s budget is clear evidence of the White House’s strategy to pit Americans against each other for electoral gain, not to help grow the economy. The American people won’t buy what the President’s selling, basically that the reason some aren’t doing well is because other people are doing too well. The reality is that his anti-growth economic agenda of the last three and half years, illustrated by his latest budget, has made a bad situation far worse.  

“I am particularly dismayed that the President has yet again failed to offer a plan to save our safety net programs for future generations. The President has decided to continue to ignore the drivers of our long-term debt, instead opting to attack those bold enough to come forward with proposals to save Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid.

“I look forward to supporting a fiscally responsible, pro-growth budget that will ensure American prosperity, while rejecting the President’s latest blueprint for bigger government and a diminished future.”
