Fighting for Florida
Sep 28 2011
By Marco RubioWith the start of Rosh Hashanah tonight at sundown, my wife Jeanette and I would like to send best wishes to all of our Jewish friends and neighbors in Florida and around the world.
By Marco Rubio
Today Florida lost a great leader who will always be remembered for helping shape Florida’s history. My condolences and prayers go out to former Florida Governor Claude Kirk, Jr.’s family during this difficult time. I hope they find strength and peace in God’s love.

Shortly after Senator Rubio announced his amendment the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) said they would supportan amendment like his as it would "protect taxpayers."
Rubio: The President's plan "is really not a serious plan. It is more of a political one designed to appease his base."

Hedinger: "Well, it was pretty clear yesterday that the president didn't want to get seriously into entitlement reform. Your take on his call for a trillion and a half dollars in new taxes, Senator?"
Rubio: "Well, it goes contrary to what he himself said last December when he said that tax increases in the middle of a recession is the worst thing to do. So, I don't think that plan yesterday, with all due respect, I mean I hate coming on and always being the guy bashing the president. Let me just say that, with all due respect to the president, I think that the plan that he put out is really not a serious plan. It is more of a political one designed to appease his base. Some of the things in there, some of the savings, for example, that he takes credit for aren’t real. They're phantom savings."
Thank you for choosing this state and this city for your event. A few moments ago, I got an invitation that at 8:30 they are having some kind of hospitality party here. I think the bar is open, so I’m the only thing standing between that and you, so I’ll be brief and to the point. I am grateful for your invitation and the opportunity to speak to you for a few moments.
