Rubio: Which One of Your Taxes Will Create Jobs, Mr. President?
RUBIO: So you look at all these taxes that are being proposed and here’s what I say. I say he should analyze every single one of them through the lens of job creation, issue number one in America. I want to know which one of these taxes that they’re proposing will create jobs. I want to know how many jobs are gonna be created by the plane tax. How many jobs are gonna be created by the oil company tax that I heard so much about? How many jobs are created by going after the millionaires and billionaires that the president talks about? I want to know, how many jobs do they create?
RUSH: Marco Rubio, Republican freshman senator from Florida definitely has a future, and here he is bringing it home.
RUBIO: I traveled the state of Florida for two years campaigning. I have never met a job creator who told me that they were waiting for the next tax increase before they started growing their business. I never met a single job creator who’s ever said to me, “I can’t wait ’til government raises taxes again so I can go out and create a job,” and curious to know if they say that in New Hampshire because they don’t say that in Florida. So my view on all this is I want to know how many jobs these tax increases the president proposes will create because if they’re not creating jobs and they’re not creating new taxpayers, they’re not solving the problem.
