Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued a statement regarding the new policies President Obama announced at today’s White House Summit on Working Families.
On Wednesday, Rubio will outline reform conservative ideas to address the rising cost of living plaguing middle class families during a speech at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center. This will be the latest in a series of efforts by Rubio to restore the American Dream in the 21st century.
Rubio issued the following statement:
“President Obama deserves credit for using the power of the presidency to highlight the significant obstacles working families face in America. However, the policies he announced today do not go far enough to address the challenges our families face. Telling federal agencies to do what they’re already supposed to do and endorsing partisan legislation that will never pass is not the sort of bold, innovative leadership we need.
“Never in our history have more Americans believed their children and grandchildren are destined to inherit a tougher life with fewer opportunities. For millions of Americans, the American Dream feels increasingly out of reach. We cannot remain an exceptional country if we do not reverse this trend.
“The key to a better life and achieving the American Dream does not lie with doubling down on outdated 20th century policies. It rests with 21st century reforms. That is why this coming Wednesday, I will outline how modern conservative reforms can help bring the American Dream within reach for millions of single mothers, young Americans and working families.”
