U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has expressed his concerns over this very issue in a tersely worded statement stating that, “The absurdity of what we have witnessed on the Senate floor is only eclipsed by the lack of leadership demonstrated by the White House, and a President who has been absent from this debate and even sent his lead negotiator on a five-day foreign trip.”

Rubio has been pushing for a long term budget instead of continuing to push for 2-3 week budget extensions- Rubio believes this needs to be addressed once and for all rather than with these stopgap measures whose primary purpose is to win the ongoing PR battle in the the news cycle.  Rubio also supports a balanced budget amendment- where is the progress in Congress on this bright idea?

“I will no longer support short-term budget plans. While attempts at new spending reductions are commendable, we simply can no longer afford to nickel-and-dime our way out of the dangerous debt America has amassed. It is time our leaders in Washington wake up and realize that we are headed for a debt disaster.”- Senator Marco Rubio
