Yesterday, Marco Rubio put out a “Back to the Future”-themed attack video. Here’s our response:
“If Marty McFly and Dr. Brown time-traveled to an America under President Marco Rubio, they’d probably think they were in the 1950s. Marco Rubio wants to turn back the clock on a woman’s right to choose – even in cases of rape or incest. He wants to go back to a time where too many Americans with pre-existing conditions like diabetes or cancer were denied insurance coverage and women were charged more for their health care, and wants to dismantle critical programs like Social Security and Medicare, which he said have ‘weakened us as a people.’ He also opposes and attacks forward-thinking ideas like guaranteeing equal pay, raising the minimum wage, taking action on climate change, and supporting marriage equality.
“Democrats are committed to moving our country forward and building on the progress made under the Obama administration: 67 consecutive months of private sector job growth, a precipitous drop in the unemployment rate, a shrinking budget deficit, the lowest uninsured rate ever recorded, and health care costs growing at the slowest rate in over 50 years. Where we’re going, we don’t need Rubio’s outdated policies.” – DNC Spokesman Eric Walker
