News

WASHINGTON D.C. -- Senator Marco Rubio spoke out agains the Reid bill to raise  the debt ceiling Saturday afternoon.

During his marks on the Senate Floor Rubio disagreed with the characterization of some Tea Party freshman Congressmen as extremists because they don't support raising of the debt ceiling.

He said President Obama was not considered an extremist, when he voted against raising the debt ceiling in March 2006.

"I found some pretty extremist quotes!," said Senator Rubio.

"Here's one. Let me read it for you. It says, 'The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership's failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit."

The quote Senator Rubio read was from then Senator Barack Obama a Democrat from Illinois.
