Rubio to Give GOP Address Feb. 12

Speaker Boehner and Senate Republican Leader McConnell announced today that Senator Marco Rubio would be giving the Republican Address in response to the State of the Nation on February 12. This is the first time the young senator will take the national stage representing the conservative party.

Senator Rubio, now in his third year in the U.S. Senate, has been a champion of growing the American middle class through limited government and free enterprise policies, making him a natural choice to outline why the Republican vision can help Americans rise above their current circumstances in the Obama economy.

“Marco Rubio is one of our party’s most dynamic and inspiring leaders. He carries our party’s banner of freedom, opportunity and prosperity in a way few others can. His family’s story is a testament to the promise and greatness of America,” said Speaker Boehner.  “He’ll deliver a GOP address that speaks from the heart to the hopes and dreams of the middle class; to our party’s commitment to life and liberty; and to the unlimited potential of America when government is limited and effective.”

“Marco Rubio embodies the optimism that lies at the heart of the Republican vision for America. On Tuesday, he will contrast the Republican approach to the challenges we face with President Obama’s vision of an ever-bigger government and the higher taxes that would be needed to pay for it,” said Senator McConnell. “Marco’s own experience as the child of immigrants has always informed his belief in limited government and free enterprise, which is why he has helped lead the fight against out-of-control spending and job-destroying tax hikes that continue to hold our economy back and stifle opportunity for millions. He was a natural choice to deliver the Republicans’ alternative to the administration’s reliance on government and debt.”

“I’m honored to have this opportunity to discuss how limited government and free enterprise have helped senator rubiomake my family’s dreams come true in America,” said Senator Rubio.  “Limited government and free enterprise are the very foundation of what makes America special and separates us from the world, particularly through our strong middle class.  I look forward to laying out the Republican case of how our ideas can help people close the gap between their dreams and the opportunities to realize them.”

The address will be delivered in both English and Spanish and comes the same week that TIME Magazine will feature the Florida senator on their cover.

  1. This is the first time I can honestly say I agree with Bohner or McConnell and it may be the last. I am a huge fan of Mark Rubio’s & find him a real breath of fresh air & hope for our Country. We’d be in great shape if we had others just like him representing us & taking care of business. We found Ted Cruz & I’m certain there are more equally as valuable to ‘do the people’s business’ if we start looking now…for 2014.

    With all the excitement he provokes, I’m certain that his name will be close to the top of the list for 2016. On (Allerah,”Marco Rubio Presidential Profile, CDN, May 29, 2011)I saw some immigration relate points that might cause me to pause before getting on board that bandwagon. ie: He ‘opposes amnesty of any kind’ is for ‘in-state tution for children of (illegal) immigrants’ etc. And ONLY as I understand it, he was born in Cuba on his mother’s visit there, IF so, we don’t need that distaction again.

    In the meantime, to have more Rubios & Cruz’s in Washington would be a dream come true for many many Americans….a blessing, indeed.
