GOP to label Obama agenda 'big government'
WASHINGTON - Republicans plan to cast President Obama's second-term agenda as more "big government" and offer a series of proposals to boost economic growth and reduce the federal debt.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will deliver the Republican response to Obama's State of the Union address tonight. He says Republicans will pursue policies that would create jobs for middle-class families, tame the federal debt and hold down future spending.
He says Republicans "don't just want to be the opposition. We want to be the alternative."
Rubio will deliver his address in both English and Spanish. It comes as Republicans say the party needs to do more to attract Latino voters. Obama won 71 percent of Hispanic voters last year against Republican Mitt Romney.
