Senator, and presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-FL) addressed Georgia Republicans Friday at their State Convention in Athens.
The 2016 hopeful covered a wide variety of topic, including the economy, education, welfare, religious liberties, and Americn values.
“We need competition in higher education,” Rubio told the crowd of several thousand delegates, plugging his “Right to Know Before You Go” bill. He said college students taking out loans need to know “whether it is worth $50 thousand to major in Greek philosophy.”
“Everyone on government benefits should either be working or going to school,” the Senator told the audience, a statement that drew loud applause. He then spoke on school choice and other reforms for low income Americans.
Rubio touched on another hot topic for Georgians, addressing religious liberties, saying that they are to be protected “not just at home or at church, but in our businesses.”
