Senator Rubio Delivers First Senate Floor Speech On “The New American Century”
Washington, D.C. – Earlier today, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio delivered his maiden speech on the floor of the United States Senate. Video of the speech can be found here, and the full remarks as delivered are below:
THE AMERICAN CENTURY
Thank you, Mr. President. I have the honor of representing the great people of the state of Florida here in the Senate. And today I speak for the first time on this floor on their behalf.
The Senate is a long ways away from where I come from, both literally and figuratively.
I come from a hard-working and humble family. One that was neither wealthy nor connected. Yet I’ve always considered myself to be a child of privilege because growing up I was blessed with two very important things.
I was raised by a strong and stable family.
And I was blessed to be born here in the United States of America.
America began from a powerful truth – that our rights as individuals do not come from our government. They come from our God.
Government’s job is to protect those rights. And here this Republic has done that better than any government in the history of the world.
