Fighting for Florida
Oct 07 2011
By Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mark Kirk, and Marco RubioLast Thursday we arrived in Tripoli to the promise of a free Libya. We saw a city that is surprisingly secure and orderly. We visited al-Jdeida prison and spoke freely with detainees - a testament to the commitment of the Transitional National Council (TNC) to democracy, transparency and the rule of law. At the end of the day, we walked through Martyrs' Square, where Libyans cheered and thanked America and our NATO allies.
Marco RubioIn June, this paper accused me of putting "the financial interests of the nation's biggest banks before small retailers and consumers" when I voted to delay an onerous regulation that I feared would increase banking fees and hit the wallets of Americans who are already struggling in this economy.

Yesterday, Senator Rubio signed on as a cosponsor of S.1611, the Reducing the Size of the Federal Government Through Attrition Act. This bill would reduce the federal workforce by 10% by 2015, which would save approximately $139 billion over ten years.

I would like to congratulate Walt Disney World on the celebration of its 40th anniversary this past weekend. Disney has been the home of tremendous talent and innovation through the years and brightens Florida’s economy as the largest employer in Central Florida with almost 60,000 employees.
Disney continues to reinvent itself with the times and thrives as the world’s largest theme park resort. We can only imagine what future generations can expect of the land “Where Dreams Come True.”
