Rubio: “I would much rather the President come down from his prideful position and basically say, ‘Look the law is messed up.’ But he’s not going to do that obviously, and so this is the only option.”

“This is the only chance and the last chance that we have. And the one thing that does bother me is that there [are] people in Washington that love to say, ‘We’re against ObamaCare.’ How can you be against ObamaCare, but vote for a budget that funds its implementation when you know the harm that it’s going to do? Now I would much rather the President come down from his prideful position and basically say, ‘Look the law is messed up.’ But he’s not going to do that obviously, and so this is the only option. This is a fundamental issue. This is not a disagreement about some small piece of legislation. This affects a sixth of the U.S. economy.

“The President now says he’s focused on the middle class. Well, one of the most important things we can do to help the middle class in America right now is defund and get rid of ObamaCare, because the impact it’s going to have on millions of Americans who have health insurance and are happy with it, is going to be dramatic and painful. We can’t let that happen.”
