During a pre-debate conference call Wednesday, Florida Senator Marco Rubio told bloggers President Obama’s policies have been devastating to the middle class and slammed “laughable” promises Obama made in 2008 standing before Greek columns in Denver.
“You read some of those promises now and they’re almost laughable,” Rubio said. “How about on taxes, he’s proposing a middle class tax increase, his budget proves it.”
Banking off of Joe Biden’s comments yesterday about the middle class being buried in the past four years, Rubio said we will see an argument tonight from Mitt Romney about how big government crushes the middle class. He pointed out it is not the big corporations or Wall Street firms who suffer most under bloated government, but the young entrepreneur and small businesses.
“Big government is devastating,” he said. “What you’re going to see tonight is a very compelling argument of how big government is devastating to the Middle Class.”
