I agree with Republicans like Senator Rubio that [the Earned Income Tax Credit] doesn’t do enough for single workers who don’t have kids. So let’s work together to strengthen the credit, reward work, and help more Americans get ahead.And how did Rubio respond to the president's olive branch? Yup, you guessed it: By all but calling him a dictator.
Many in the GOP said they don’t intend to sit quietly if Obama starts signing executive orders. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) had sharp criticism for the president’s expanded authority.Actually, what truly undermines the Republic is when Republicans like Marco Rubio run away from things they support simply because the president supports them too.
“I think it’s unfortunate, I think it’s divisive and quite frankly, borderline unconstitutional on many of those issues,” Rubio said. “I understand the [legislative] process takes long and can be frustrating, but I think it truly undermines the republic.”
As for the executive order stuff, there's nothing really controversial there, because for better or worse, there really isn't much the president can do without cooperation from Congress. And as Rubio demonstrates, that's not coming anytime soon.
