Marco Rubio: Obama's speech set us back on addressing the deficitTopics:
Senator Marco Rubio asked on Fox News this morning, "How can you call [Obama's plan] a debt-reduction plan" ... "when it adds $8 trillion to the national debt?" ... and goes on to say, "this president is running for reelection, he has no interest in solving this (the debt) problem," and suggests that Obama's position appears to be that he's against adding $12 trillion to our debt but supports adding two-thirds of that amount.
Rubio also says he'll vote against the budget deal - if and when - it gets to the Senate, saying it takes the US "in the wrong direction" and that "this problem won't solve itself." Rubio says that his colleagues on Capitol Hill are in denial about the problem and its scope. He's also planning to vote to defund Planned Parenthood, saying no program should be considered untouchable (hat tip - Ed Morrissey).
