Washington, D.C. – Earlier today, Senator Marco Rubio responded to President Obama’s interview with FOX 13 in Tampa:
“I am willing to work with anybody who is willing to work on a real jobs bill. The problem is the jobs bill the President is proposing isn't a real jobs bill. Just because you call it that doesn’t make it that. In fact, it’s very similar to the policies he pursued when he first came to office, policies that have made everything worse.
"Unemployment is higher. Our debt is higher. So here’s what I’m doing: I’m going to work with anybody who wants to work with me. I’m actively engaged in conversations with colleagues of mine, Democrats, in trying to come up with a bill on the things we can agree on. There are some issues that we are not going to agree on, and that’s why we have elections. But there are issues that we do agree on that I do think would start to get the economy moving forward. So hopefully we will have something to announce here soon.”
