Senator Marco Rubio: “There is nothing innovative. These are all ideas that come from job creators. It starts with the notion that most net new jobs are created by new businesses, businesses starting from scratch. We want to make it easier for people to do that. One of the impediments for being able to start a business is the way capital, money, you know access to investment money, is treated. And so we would make changes to the tax code that would make it friendlier for people to start new businesses.
 
“And the other thing it looks at is attracting talent. If someone’s got $4 million and they want to open up a business in the United States from overseas, we should make it easier for them to do that, not harder. And we shouldn’t be deporting Ph.D.’s and we shouldn’t be asking people with Master’s degrees to go back home. There was an article in the newspaper yesterday about how China is aggressively recruiting Chinese students who have studied in this country and gotten doctorate degrees to go back. We can’t have that kind of reverse brain drain. So we modernized the legal immigration system and changed the way some of the visa programs work so that it works better for America and better for American jobs.”
