Rubio counters Obama at the Statehouse
GOP senator and Tea Party favorite hits Obama on debt, jobs
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE BUREAU CHIEF KAREN KASLER
This story is part of a special series.


Reporter
Karen Kasler
 

The Romney campaign sent an up-and-coming Senator from Florida to Ohio to counter the twin visits of President Obama.

Marco Rubio spoke to about three hundred people at the Statehouse at almost the same time Mr. Obama was speaking about a mile away.

Rubio talked about the concerns of unemployed college graduates and workers with dwindling savings. And Rubio said things can get better only by returning to what he called the principles that made Americans prosperous and different - limited government and the free enterprise system, which he praised as offering huge opportunity.

“If we stay on the track he’s placed us on, these are his numbers, not mine. These are his ideas, not the ideas I’m making up for him. If we stay on the road he’s outlined for us now, the debt will grow to levels no people have ever seen. And the debt is just part of the problem. You know what’s just as bad as the debt? The interest on the debt.”


Rubio also blasted Mr. Obama on the national debt – saying he’s not only not dealt with the debt as he promised, but that he's made it worse. And Rubio said if the president continues on the path that he started – quoting here – “the debt will grow to levels no people have ever seen”.
