Marco Rubio: "We Are A Nation Of Haves And Soon-To-Haves"
Rubio: "We have never been a nation of haves and have-nots. We are a nation of haves and soon-to-haves, of people who have made it and people who will make it. And that's who we need to remain."
During a Senate floor speech on December 16, 2011, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio offered his perspectives on his first year in office and the challenges that remain unsolved. Excerpts from the speech and a link to his full remarks can be found her:
Rubio's views may reflect the popular opinion that upward economic mobility is primarily just a matter of working hard. We love a good rags-to-riches story. But perhaps we tolerate vast income and wealth inequality in the U.S. because we think these success stories happen more than they actually do.
