Senator (Marco) Rubio: “I have watched the President give press conferences, I have watched the President give speeches, but I have yet to see a plan from the President. And with all due respect to my colleagues in the other party here in the Senate, I haven’t seen a plan from them either. They are the majority party. They control this chamber. They control the Senate. And I haven’t seen a plan from them.
“A moment ago we heard this talk about – well we have to compromise. Well it’s really hard to compromise when the other side doesn’t have a plan.
And so I would urge the leadership of this chamber and the President of the United States to offer their ideas on paper. Put your ideas on paper and offer them so we can begin to work on this concept of compromise that you’ve offered. Because you can’t compromise and you can’t negotiate with people that will not offer a plan.
They are blowing smoke with the so-called “Gang of 6” plan. It’s not a plan. It’s a decoy. It’s not in writing. It’s nowhere near being a piece of legislation. Obama blew that out there to try to deflect attention from the fact they have no plan and the fact that the democrats and the president have shot down the only plan there is.
