Too much of the wrong kind of passion,he is for immigration reform,aka,amnesty.Good observation but I believe he is only stating what has previously happened when our countries economy does well then more revenue is created in the form of taxes (not necessarily new taxes but more revenue from prosperity). The thing we need to do is keep the kids out of the cookie jar or in this case the Foxes out of the hen house.
The Government needs more money to shore up Social Security and Medicare (if they would! NOT). Boondoggles they have robbed since their inception. I am not sure what I have paid into Medicare but I have paid $140,000.00 into Social Security. At age 57 I may not ever see this money.
Rubio does talk about changing our tax code which is way overdue and a balanced budget also. Two items we will probably never see.
He has passion and doesn't read from a scripted speech off a teleprompter !:congrat:
Who else is worth a crap?:gaah:
I had read that Rubio went to a Univision meeting also that he was a member at one time."As an underdog U.S. Senate candidate courting the GOP's conservative wing, Marco Rubio takes a hard-line position against illegal immigration: no amnesty. <...> The son of Cuban exiles born in Miami says he opposed the proposal spearheaded in 2006 by former Sen. Mel Martinez - whose early retirement triggered Rubio's 2010 campaign - that would have allowed illegal immigrants to work toward citizenship. Crist supported the bill.
Indeed, Rubio recently smacked Crist for that position on the stump.
"He supported cap and trade," Rubio said of Crist. "He supported the stimulus package. He supported amnesty for illegal aliens. These are all major issues that are going to be coming up in Washington.
So how did Rubio's parents, who fled Castro's Cuba in 1959, get in? Yep, they were granted amnesty.
Shortly after Castro won control, some elite Cubans fled to Miami. As the flow grew, Presidents Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson used the parole power to admit them. From 1959 to the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, more than 200,000 arrived."
