JULY 31, WASHINGTON
–Sen. Marco Rubio spoke on the Senate floor last night to discuss the Senate’s budget delay. While the House of Representatives has now passed three separate plans to change the nation’s debt trajectory and deal with the debt limit deadline, the Democrat-controlled Senate has refused to pass a budget in over two years, and has not presented one at all this year.
Rubio said that “this has been the plan all along, by the way. The plan all along was not to take a position, to let the days count down until we got to this point with 72 hours to go, and then force a vote on something that they wanted… You want to know why people all across America get grossed out by politics? It’s by watching this kind of stuff happen.”
