Senator Rubio informs president of his opposition to raising debt ceiling

Marco Rubio has declared to obama that he will oppose raising debt ceiling any further:

In a scathing letter sent to Barack Obama this morning, Senator Marco Rubio said that under the President’s first term in office, “more and more people have come to believe that America is becoming a deadbeat nation.”
Rubio went on to pledge that he would challenge any further increase in the debt ceiling, arguing that “we [Congress] need to make it routine to actually spend no more than we take in.” In the letter obtained by HUMAN EVENTS, the Florida Senator said that President Obama’s upcoming request to increase the debt ceiling by a whopping $1.2 trillion will cause the nation’s public debt to surpass the $16 trillion mark.
“I will oppose your request to continue borrowing and spending recklessly.”

Current GDP  $15,105,346,000,000 (rounded)

Current Debt $15,199,051,000,000 (rounded)

At the end of August, the ceiling was raised to $16.7  trillion.

obama plans to request $1.2 trillion soon.  Just how high do they intend to go.  This does not even include SS and medicare liabilities (which is now receiving less money because of obama’s big fine so-called tax break, a reduction in FICA deductions.)

And he is worried about “payday loan” companies.

Watch him.  He may try to go around the congress on this, too.

Obama losing independents in Florida with 61% disapproval, Rubio gains 4 points

The post-debt deal poll shows little change in Obama’s May approval among Republicans and Democrats. But among independent voters he plummets from a 47 – 45 percent split in May to a 61 – 33 percent disapproval today.

New Poll:

It was with independents where Obama took his biggest hit. Sixty-one percent of independents said they now disapprove of the president’s performance compared to 33 percent who approved. In May, 47 percent of the independents approved of Obama’s job performance compared to 45 percent who did not.

Obama wasn’t helped by the recent fight with Congress over raising the nation’s debt ceiling, the poll indicated.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio‘s approval rating jump four points (from 45 to 49 percent) after he voted against the debt deal. 

Senator Rubio recently associated himself with the tea party in his address on the debt ceiling on the Senate floor.  See:  https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/07/31/marco-rubio-freshman-fla-senator-telling-truth-on-debt/

And who acted in the best interest of the United State in the debt ceiling plan?

Total D, R, and I:  Obama 36 %, Boehner 33%, and Harry Reid only 11%.
