Senator Rubio Comments On Today’s Budget Votes

May 16, 2012 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding today’s budget votes:

“Once again, the Senate has rejected the President’s budget because it fails to offer a serious plan to tackle our $15 trillion debt.  This year, not a single member of Congress has supported his wish list of huge tax increases, higher spending and runaway debt.  Finding unanimous, bipartisan agreement in Washington is a rare sight, but the President has achieved it with a budget that leaves even his fiercest allies with no choice but to reject it.

“Instead, I supported Senator Pat Toomey’s budget and the House Republican plan, both of which take meaningful first steps to reduce our debt.  While I would have liked to see greater spending reductions in the House Republican plan, I support it because it’s a serious effort aimed in part at saving Medicare.

“Unfortunately, I could not support Senator Mike Lee’s budget because, while it makes a well-intentioned attempt to save Medicare and Social Security, its reforms would start affecting retirees in five years.  I promised Floridians that I would work to save Medicare and Social Security for future generations without impacting current retirees like my own mother or people close to retirement.”
