Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said his biggest concern about President Obama’s jobs proposal is that most of it “won’t work.”
“My problem with this is quite frankly a lot of it just won’t work,” Rubio said Thursday in his Web response to Obama’s jobs speech. “A lot of this sounds like things we’ve already tried. You know, more government spending.”
He called for regulatory and tax reform, saying that is the best way to create confidence and get businesses to hire.
“There are things in there that are good, but by in large it’s a proposal based on things that just won’t work. [They] haven’t worked in the past and won’t work in the future,” Rubio said.
Rubio also posted his video statement in Spanish.
