Senator Rubio Opposes Short-Term Funding Measure As “Short-Sighted Band-Aid Disguised As A Solution”

Mar 20, 2013 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement today regarding his vote against the short-term government funding measure that passed the Senate today:

“By continuing to jump from one self-inflicted crisis to the next without actually solving any of our long-term job creation and debt challenges, Washington is guaranteeing that people will continue holding back on fully investing in such an uncertain future.  I refuse to support new measures that are simply a short-term, short-sighted Band-Aid disguised as a solution. 

“We need real solutions that will encourage long-term economic growth, job creation, debt reduction and overall certainty about the future.  All this measure does is keep government operating on deficit spending that is unsustainable until we tackle the real drivers of our debt – a weak economy that isn’t sustaining enough growth and Washington’s refusal to save Medicare and Social Security from bankruptcy.”
