Florida Sen. Marco Rubio spoke on Thursday at the Freedom and Faith conference about how Democrats “literally pit Americans against each other, by design, for purposes of winning an election.”

Rubio spoke to the audience about the philosophy and message of the left:

You want more prosperity? Give us more power to pass laws You want more prosperity? Give us the power to take money away from our fellow Americans. They say something more. They say things that are deeply divisive, by design. They tell our fellow Americans that the reasons why they’re worse off is because other people are doing too well. That the way to protect your job is to raise your bosses taxes. That the only way you can climb up the economic latter is for you to give us the power to pull some people down. They literally pit Americans against each other by design for purposes of winning an election. And that’s never who we’ve been. That never is who we have been aspired to be and that is not who we should become, and yet that is what is at issue in these elections.
