Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., blasted President Obama's economic policies in the weekly Republican address on Saturday, calling his push for a so-called millionaires' tax "divisive rhetoric."
"People end up fleeing countries who adopt economic policies based on these flawed principles," he said. "And more often than not, they come here."
Rubio also rebutted parts of Obama's State of Union address, which he delivered on Tuesday.
“This president didn’t talk about his record for one simple reason; he doesn’t want you to know about it," Rubio said. "But you do know about it, because you feel the failure of his leadership every single day of your life."
Rubio said the best way to solve our economic problems is to "embrace the American free enterprise system," which he accused Obama of abandoning.
The freshman senator from Florida is frequently mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick for the GOP ticket.
