Marco Rubio, You’ll Never Be Able to Stand Up Straight If You Don’t Have A Spine

H Has Anyone Seen Marco Rubio’s Spine? It’s Missing in Action By Ilene Proctor Were you in as much shock and awe as I was to hear “liddle” Marco Rubio say the tax break is a scam. Despite his party’s insistence that a giant corporate tax cut would eventually, at some later date, benefit the middle class, How many roads must the Republican party walk down before they admit that trickle down doesn’t work. Rubio said in an interview that rather than spending their boatloads of cash on average workers, corporations, shocker of shockers, “bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses,” and “there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.” Paul Ryan who’s shown over and over and then over again that his true love and mentor, Ayn Rand never gave a fig Newton John about anybody but herself, so why is it a surprise that when they give a corporation a massive take break that they fatten their bank accounts, give themselves a new wing on their house, a new plane, more diamonds and silk, then maybe, just maybe, a pennies on the dollar pay hike to the little guys. Like all its ancestor tax breaks for the wealthy, the latest G.O.P.’s tax hike on steroids is all about the upward re-distribution of wealth. A massive tax cut for corporate America not actually trickling down to the middle class? Hey Mario, That’s the kind of talk that will land you in some shed somewhere on the outskirts of Virginia with Paul Ryan brandishing a cat o’ nine tails, To To avoid a cruel and very public Republican lynching, just days later, Rubio swallowed his words. “On the whole, the tax cut bill helps workers,“ the invertebrate lawmaker’s op-ed for The National Review begins. “It’s just not massive tax cuts to multinational corporations that do it,” it continues. “Overall, the Republican tax-cut bill has been good for Americans. That is why I voted for it. But it could have been even better for American workers and their families.” Rubio then goes on to mildly criticize the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” saying the corporate rate could’ve been slightly higher than 21 percent, and that the bill would have been better if it had increased the child tax credit. Overall, though, he takes pains to make clear that he’s fully behind this thing and was a naughty little boy who misspoke when he made his heretical statements to The Economist. Unfortunately, the piece was leaked and pissed off the Republican leadership and Rubio’s corporate donors, and not members of the wider public who might have the audacity to recognize the about-face for what it is: the sort of verbal calisthenics we’ve sadly come to expect from the Florida senator.
