In a recent speech, Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio explains that the problem isn’t that we need new taxes, it’s that we need new taxpayers. Sen. Rubio goes on to say that “revenue enhancer” is nothing more than “Washington speak” for more money to Washington. His point is that if we rely on spending we will continue to bury ourselves in debt.
As the Texas Public Policy Foundation has been saying for years, it is jobs, not taxes that create a good economy. As he explains in this video, Sen. Rubio understands this notion.
