Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky gave scathing responses to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night. Paul, speaking for the tea party, called on Democrats and Republicans to compromise in order to fix the nation's finances, while Rubio, giving the official Republican response, accused Obama of failing to protect the middle classes. "As you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for Washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more," Rubio said.
