Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), widely expected to run for president in 2016, announced Wednesday he would vote against a newly announced bipartisan deal to avert default and reopen the government.

“I cannot support this deal because it postpones any significant action on pro-growth and spending reforms and does nothing to provide working class Americans even one shred of relief from ObamaCare’s harmful effects,” he said in a statement.

“Until we tackle the real threats to the American Dream, we are going to continue finding ourselves in these kinds of messes,” he added. “America is better than this, and the American people deserve better.”
