Senator Marco Rubio: “The President himself has already admitted that a significant portion of the law isn’t working, and that’s why he’s delayed portions of it for a year. That’s why the administration has given all kinds of waivers to allies of the administration through its regulatory system. At the same time, I don’t think he can ignore that he has strong allies of his who supported him in his campaign, who are asking him to delay and repeal significant portions of the bill.

“Look when the Teamsters union, not exactly a bastion of pro-conservative Republicanism, when the Teamsters union is issuing letters saying this law is breaking its promises and undermining the 40 hour work week, I just don’t know how he can ignore that. And all I would say is, let’s take a time-out here. Let’s not fund this thing. Let’s suspend this thing at a minimum. I would like to see it repealed, but at a minimum let’s suspend it. But let’s use this short term budget as a way to keep the government open, fund the government moving forward, but not fund this law that is hurting real people in such dramatic ways.”
