FULL INTERVIEW: Senator Marco Rubio Blasts Back Against Dems for Failing to Present a Budget
Thursday, Senator Marco Rubio joined Your World to address our nation’s debt crisis.
Rubio blasted Senate Dems for having failed to offer a budget for the last three-and-a-half years. Rubio said, “I mean, do people back home fully understand what I just explained? The Democrats in Washington that control the Senate have not offered a budget in three-and-a-half years, almost four years now. This government has spent close to $10 trillion since the budget was last passed by them.”
He conceded that in order to determine a budget, both Democrats and Republicans will have to compromise, but he questioned how that can be accomplished if Democrats won’t come to the table.
Rubio addressed Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s recent comments that there is no crisis, saying, “I think for the Secretary of the Treasury to say that there is no crisis when this government will again this year spend over a trillion dollars more than it takes in, I think that right there is the crisis.”
