Today, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservatives gathered for American Conservative Union’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2013) in Washington, D.C. Introduced by Al Cardenas, ACU Chairman, Rubio addressed a packed room of attendees on a variety of issues facing our nation.
Senator Marco Rubio:
“There is no tax increase in the world that will solve our debt problem.” Regarding school choice, he said “Every parent in America should have the opportunity to send their child to the school of their choice.” He went on to say “We do have obligations; obligations to each other through community, not government.”
As he closed his speech, Rubio predicted criticism from the left, saying, “We don’t need a new idea, the idea is America, and it still works.”
The room sprang to its feet in a standing ovation and twitter lit up with his remarks. For more follow me on twitter at @BettinaInclan
