Rubio to CPAC: “The Idea is America, and it Still Works”

March 13, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Marco Rubio addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservatives gathered for ACU’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2013) in Washington, D.C. Introduced by Al Cardenas, ACU Chairman, Rubio addressed a full room of attendees on a wide variety of issues facing our country.

Senator Marco Rubio:

There is no tax increase in the world that will solve our debt problem.”  Regarding school choice, he said “Every parent in America should have the opportunity to send their child to the school of their choice.” He went on to say “We do have obligations; obligations to each other through community, not government.”

Regarding predicted criticism from the left, Rubio concluded, “We don’t need a new idea, the idea is America, and it still works.”

Rubio’s full remarks are available via YouTube here.

Please note that the schedule is updated daily and available on our new CPAC 2013 website under “Program.”
