Marco Rubio this morning described last night’s Democratic primary debate as a:
[D]ebate about who was going to give away the most free stuff: Free college education, free college education for people illegally in this country, free health care, free everything.
Sound familiar? Three weeks ago, Jeb Bush suggested
that African Americans support Democrats because of promises of “free stuff.”
But I hope people understand this, your friends who like Obamacare, you remind them of this, if they want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy.
And “vote for the other guy” they did.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Wednesday morning lamented that the Democratic presidential debate was merely a competition over who would grant the American people more “free stuff.”
“If you watched that debate last night it looked like something from the early ’80s,” Rubio said on “Fox and Friends.” “It was basically a liberal verses liberal debate about who was going to give away the most free stuff: Free college education, free college education for people illegally in this country, free health care, free everything.”
“Their answer to every problem in America is a government program and a tax increase. That’s all they prescribe time and time again,” he continued.
Rubio said that the debate “became exactly what I predicted it would be: a race to the left to see who’d be the most radically liberal, the most big government. And that’s what this whole primary is going to be for the Democratic side.”
His comment about “free stuff” is reminiscent of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s (R) comment in September that he would win over black voters with a message of “hope and aspiration,” not “free stuff.”
