"[Obama’s] solution to virtually every problem we face is for Washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more," Rubio said of the president. "And the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hardworking middle class taxpayers - that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. More government isn't going to help you get ahead. It's going to hold you back. More government isn't going to create more opportunities. It's going to limit them."
Yes, it’s the old, failed way—FDR tried for over 10 years and kept us mired in a Depression--and they say conservatives are stuck in the past.
Rand Paul in his response said something like, “What the president fails to grasp. . .” then something about hard work. Look guys, this president is not dumb and he knows exactly what he is doing and has the steps laid out to destroy initiative, self-reliance, the rewards of hard work, and anything else the founders had in mind.
