Senator Rubio Releases Statement Following President’s Jobs Speech

Sep 8, 2011 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio released the following video statement regarding tonight’s speech by President Obama:

Full Transcript

“Unemployment is a crisis in our country, and certainly this is not a time to become partisan or just reflect and attack everything the other side has.

“So there are some things that the President outlined that I think we can be supportive of, but my problem with this, quite frankly, is that a lot of it just won’t work. A lot of it sounds like things we’ve already tried, such as more government spending. $800 billion didn’t create jobs, how is $447 billion going to create jobs?

“So, ultimately I think the problem is there are some things in there that are good, but by and large, it’s a proposal based on things that just won’t work, haven’t worked in the past and they won’t work in the future.

“We need to create an environment where job creators feel the incentive to go out and create jobs, and you do that through regulatory reform, tax reform, certainty moving forward and confidence in America’s future.”

The video statement is available for TV broadcasts in English and in Spanish, and on YouTube.
