When Marco Rubio runs for president again in the coming years, remember this moment. Just remember how he never seemed to be able to support positive changes and policies that helped return the government to the people and clean out the swamp. Remember how he started his opposition to Trump policy with his rejection of the tax overhaul.
The Hill reports:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said in an interview published Friday that Republicans “probably went too far” cutting corporate taxes in their just-enacted overhaul of the tax code.
Rubio said he expects corporations to pay out higher dividends to shareholders and buy back shares to increase their stock price with proceeds from the bill.
“You’re going to see a lot of these multinationals buy back shares to drive up the price,” Rubio told the southwest Florida-based News-Press.
“Some of them will be forced, because they’re sitting on historic levels of cash, to pay out dividends to shareholders,” Rubio said. “That isn’t going to create dramatic economic growth.”
Alas, Marco. Did you miss this?
… Several U.S. corporations that supported the tax bill announced raises, bonuses and benefits increases for employees shortly after Congress passed the measure on Dec. 22. These include Boeing, Wells Fargo, Comcast, AT&T and close to a dozen others.
Just remember this…
Rubio said while the bill contained several things he supported, “If I were king for a day, this tax bill would have looked different.” He and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) successfully pushed GOP leaders to increase the child tax credit, a provision meant to assist struggling families.
It’s important to remember these swamp creature temper tantrums. If Rubio isn’t cleaned out with the rest of the swamp creatures, he’ll be back.
