Marco Rubio on Romney’s “gifts” statement (as usually…he nails it)

Marco Rubio was asked to comment on Mitt Romney’s statement that Obama influenced the election outcome through government handouts (or “gifts” as he called them). Another sign why Senator Rubio is considered by many to be in the driver’s seat for the 2016 nomination, he provided the following, highly effect response:

“[O]ur mission should not be to deny government benefits to people who need them,” but to make sure that “less people need government benefits.”

Rubio added that he has “tremendous admiration for [Romney] as a person” and hopes he stays active in the GOP.
