Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after opposing a short-term budget that would fund ObamaCare:
“Every day, more and more people are starting to doubt whether hard work and sacrifice still lead to prosperity and a better life, and whether the American Dream is still alive. The reason why is because the federal government has steadily undermined free enterprise. Short-term budgets that do nothing to solve our debt crisis are part of the problem, but this short-term budget is especially damaging because it wastes money on ObamaCare, a law that is costing many hard-working people their hours at work, their jobs and their existing health coverage.
“Today, we had an important opportunity to stand with America’s working class and defund ObamaCare before it continues to hurt people even more. That did not happen. I will continue to fight to stop ObamaCare in its entirety and replace it with an alternative that truly gives Americans more affordable high-quality health care options without hurting their jobs, incomes and current health plans they are happy with.”
