Senator Rubio Opposes Washington’s Latest Budget Game

Apr 4, 2011 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio today released the following video statement after his vote against the latest short-term continuing budget resolution:

“Today’s vote, first of all, should remind us of how we got here. Why are we funding government in two or three week increments? And it’s because Democrats, when they ran the House, the Senate and the White House, didn’t pass a budget.

“But more importantly, this is a terrible way to run government. We are facing some serious issues in America today, particularly the fact that we are borrowing $4 billion a day to keep the lights on and particularly the fact that we owe $14 trillion and growing. It’s time to face those issues in a serious way. The time for waiting is over. The time for games has passed.”
