U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla., released a video on Twitter explaining why he is opposed to the budget deal reached by Republicans and Democrats.

“One thing that I find amazing is that in a town in which Republicans and Democrats can’t agree on anything, the one thing they agree on is running up the debt and spending a bunch of money,” Rubio said.

“It’s a tough deal, I can’t support it and let me tell you three reasons why: The first is that I always thought the caps were dumb to begin with because we were capping defense spending which is the core of what the federal government consists for and it doesn’t do the discretionary spending, the money Congress appropriates is not what is driving up, so that’s the first problem I have.

“The second problem I have with this deal is that it allows the debt limit, I don’t know how this happened, but they allowed the debt limit to be used as leverage. Nancy Pelosi wasn’t going to default on the debt limit, but we shouldn’t allow it to be used as leverage to run up our debt even further and that is what she did,” he stated.

“The third is, frankly, it is a deal that lies to the American people. It tells them, ‘Well we are going to pay for all of this by some things we are going to do in the future.’ But those things are never going to happen. It’s an accounting gimmick and it is a lie,” Rubio added.
