Marco Rubio’s Ideas Work for Coral Gables
November 7, 2010 Leave a comment
Mr. Rubio argues for a number of conservative policies, but the ones right for our small city are eliminating wasteful spending, reducing taxes, keep down the debt (read, unfunded pensions) and reducing government “reaching further into our lives” (read excessive permitting, leaf blowers and pick-up trucks).
It is curious that while progressives and conservatives can’t agree on national policies, their views are totally in tandem in Coral Gables.
“The past two years provided a frightening glimpse at what could become of our great nation if we continue down the current path: wasteful spending, a growing debt and a government reaching ever further into our lives, even into our health care decisions,” he said. “It is nothing short of a path to ruin …”
…“This means preventing a massive tax increase scheduled to hit every American taxpayer at the end of the year. It means repealing and replacing the disastrous health care bill. It means simplifying our tax code, and tackling a debt that is pushing us to the brink of our own Greece-like day of reckoning.”
