Marco Rubio to Brody File: Breakdown of Family Has Led to Moral Decline


In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File, Sen. Marco Rubio says that the breakdown of the family has had direct consequences on the morality of our nation.

Rubio spoke with The Brody File very early Wednesday morning up on Capitol Hill. Watch the interview below with the key quote. Rubio will be the guest on this week’s national Brody File television show.

Other guests this week include Steven Law, president and CEO of American Crossroads, and Joshua DuBois, the outgoing White House Faith-Based Director.

Key Quote:

Sen. Marco Rubio: I think morality ultimately is the function of the church and our faith not government but certainly government can not be immune from morality nor can our society because the breakdown in morality is having a direct economic consequence on our country.

The breakdown of the American family is one of the leading causes of poverty. The breakdown in the American family is one of the leading causes of these instances of violence that we’re seeing. The breakdown of the American family is one of the leading causes of educational underperformance.

That doesn’t mean I can go out and pass a law to create stronger families but it does mean that as leaders, if we do not recognize the impact that the social and moral well-being of our people are having on our economy and ultimately on our country, we’re blinded into a big problem.

# RE: Marco Rubio to Brody File: Breakdown of Family Has Led to Moral Decline

Knowing that The GEO Group, a prison facility contributed campaign monies to Marco Rubio,I would like to know if Sen. Marco Rubio intends to support a big money making industry receiving women and youths, in undetermined ways, within their facilities? I believe that it is well known that thousands of people's rights are openly violated and these people become someone's investments through no choice of their own or their families. And those who receive consecutive sentences do those consecutive sentences relate to the aspects of time-sharing between the facilities in different states. I ask are prisons (behind the scenes) a big contributor to helping the American Family break down? In talking to others, apparently this has gone on and is well known to have and continue to happen. Is this pro-life? Might look good on the outside to those who do not know what is going on in the inside. Something to ponder, I know its costing all of us in more ways than one.
