Rubio: The ‘Only Answer’ To IRS Scandal Is To Repeal Obamacare (VIDEO)

Calling the Internal Revenue Service’s role in the implementation of the new federal health care law “chilling,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) argued in a video posted online Wednesday that the only appropriate response to the controversy involving the agency’s targeting of conservative groups is to repeal Obamacare.

Answering a question from a constituent as part of a weekly series conducted by his office, the junior Florida senator and potential 2016 aspirant said he intends to renew his focus on the repeal of the Affordable Care Act in the wake of the IRS scandal.

“So the only answer to this is to repeal Obamacare,” Rubio said in response to an email from a man in Orlando, Fla. “It’s just one more reason why this law is going to be a disaster for our country. And in the months to come, I’m really going to focus on the issue of repealing Obamacare because in addition to the IRS’s role there is all sorts of other problems with regards to Obamacare that we need to answer.”
