Senator Rubio Comments On Super Committee’s Failure

Nov 21, 2011 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement that the congressional “Super Committee” failed to produce a plan to tackle the national debt: 

“The Super Committee was a flawed idea from the start and, while I give credit to several of its members for making a good faith effort, its fate was sealed by the President’s failure to put forward a plan to cut spending and his unbreakable obsession with raising taxes on job creators. 

“The consequences of this Washington-style leadership failure are not only a missed opportunity to rein in our debt, but also a step toward devastating cuts to our national security efforts. In sum, this threatens to leave us with a diminished economy, a less secure future and on track for our own Greece and Italy-like day of reckoning.

“We need to cut spending and save entitlements without enacting job-killing tax hikes that would hurt our economy. Until the American people rid Washington of politicians who are addicted to spending and intolerant of fundamental spending reforms, our job creators won’t have the confidence to go out and do what they do best, and our people will continue to suffer.”
