Pacific Pundit: Thirsty for attention, little Marco Rubio is sucking up to liberal media outfits again, telling them he has regrets about voting for the tax bill.
The GOP tax bill “probably went too far” in helping corporations, Sen. Marco Rubio told Florida’s News-Press in a recent interview published Friday.
Asked for his overall view of the legislation —which the Florida Republican voted for and Mr. Trump signed into law last week — Rubio said the bill would have looked different if he were “king for a day.” The legislation “probably” gave too much in benefits to corporations, he said, but noted the new law doubles the Child Tax Credit and is significantly better than the previous tax code.
Rubio and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, had suggested a corporate tax rate of 22 percent instead of the originally proposed 20 percent, in order to increase the Child Tax Credit from $1,000 per child, and Rubio threatened to vote against the bill if the Child Tax Credit didn’t improve. The final legislation left the new corporate tax rate at 21 percent, down from the previous rate of 35 percent, and increased the Child Tax Credit to $2,000 per child, per year. more here
