Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) spoke at an event at the Reagan Library in California Tuesday night. Here is his complete speech.
There's a transcript here:
Here's my favorite part:
We took these things upon ourselves and our communities and our families and our homes and our churches and our synagogues. But all that changed when the government began to assume those responsibilities. All of the sudden, for an increasing number of people in our nation, it was no longer necessary to worry about saving for security because that was the government’s job. For those who met misfortune, that wasn’t our obligation to take care of them, that was the government’s job. And as government crowded out the institutions in our society that did these things traditionally, it weakened our people in a way that undermined our ability to maintain our prosperity.
The other thing is that we built a government and its programs without any account whatsoever for how we were going to pay for it. There was not thought given into how this was going to be sustained.
This is so true and it's literally the death of the church and organized religion that actually helps people in the US.
