Miami, FL – U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio today pledged to support legislation to repeal any federal health care takeover that passes this year.

In signing the Club for Growth’s “Repeal It!” health care pledge, Rubio said, “The proposed government takeover of health care being rammed through Congress runs contrary to the principles of limited government that have made Americans the freest and most prosperous people ever. As a U.S. senator, I will sponsor and support legislation to repeal any federal health care takeover passed in 2010, and replace it with real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.

“This is not just about simply opposing and repealing the Obama-Reid-Pelosi agenda. This is about putting America back on a limited government track. This will require opposing new spending binges, but also turning back some of the mistakes made by President Obama and this Congress, including the pending health care bill.”

In November 2009, the Club for Growth endorsed Rubio’s candidacy for U.S. Senate. In announcing the endorsement, Club President Chris Chocola hailed Rubio as, “the real deal, one of the brightest young stars in American politics today, and a proven champion of economic liberty. He is a dynamic spokesman for the principles of limited government and economic freedom, and he will make a fantastic Senator.”
