As the supercommittee fails to find $1.2 trillion in cuts by Wednesday, triggering automatic massive cuts to our military, Senator Marco Rubio called out President Obama for his lack of leadership on the issue of spending cuts on ABC's This Week.
"I think it's very difficult for the Democrats on that committee to enter into a negotiation, not knowing where the White House is," Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) told "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour. "They don't want to get their legs cut out underneath them as they agree to some entitlement reform measures that later on the White House decides they don't want to support in an election year."
"I hate questioning people's motives, but I do believe that there's political strategy involved here. And I certainly think the president would like to run against a do-nothing Congress," Rubio added. "But I hope that doesn't stand in the way of meaningful legislation, particularly out of the supercommittee."
