We wanted to share a few key stories about what Marco’s been up to since his swearing in. Marco spent almost two years on the campaign trail talking about the need to take back Washington and to fight for good conservative values. Now that is exactly what he is doing:
WASHINGTON — Rookie Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida plans to hit a couple of milestones today.
In a roundtable with reporters this morning, the Republican legislator said he plans to co-sponsor his first bill today — a repeal of health care reform with Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina — and later cast his first vote, a resolution honoring wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona.
Newly inaugurated Florida Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio announced the first bill he was co-sponsoring on Wednesday — a measure backed by U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., to repeal the federal health care law.
“It is critical for the future prosperity and health of our country that we repeal Obamacare and replace it with common-sense reforms that will lower health care costs and get more Americans insured,” said Rubio.
Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio offered his take on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.
“Tonight, I had hoped to hear the president outline real solutions to fundamentally tackle our national debt crisis and help clear the way for urgently needed job creation,” said Rubio. “Instead, we heard him talk about more ‘investment,’ which is what most Floridians I know would simply call more government spending. Instead of fruitlessly turning to government to create jobs, we should be working to cut spending, promote free enterprise initiatives and give job creators the certainty they need to hire more workers.
Florida’s newest senator took his first official overseas trip — touring Afghanistan and Pakistan.
WASHINGTON — Finishing his first overseas trip as a U.S. senator, Marco Rubio on Monday warned the Obama administration against setting an “artificial timeline” for the United States to leave Afghanistan.
As Marco is in Washington, fighting for a bold conservative agenda to tackle the out of control debt, repeal obamacare and stop the spending that threatens the American dream for the next generation, he still needs your support. Help keep Marco’s message heard, help keep fellow Floridians up to date on what they can do to be a voice for our shared conservative agenda.
Thank you for your continued support! Together, we are reclaiming America.
