Marco Rubio was on the Daily Show last night for a lengthy interview that quickly became a debate over the idea that Republicans are obstructionists and hate everything the president does and ended up being a debate about ideas on how to solve the debt and deficits and grow the economy. What’s frustrating about this is how beholden Jon Stewart is to this idea of tax increases. Rubio made a great argument that spending one dollar in the private sector would generate more revenues than a tax increase would, yet Stewart wouldn’t let go of tax increases because he’s also beholden to this idea of a balanced approach. And even though they never really came to a consensus, it was a valiant effort on the part of Rubio.
