“Senator” Marco Rubio, the spineless wonder, tells the truth about the Republican Tax Scam he voted for. The tax scam that lavished the wealthiest Americans with a massive tax cut:
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida told The Economist in an interview published last week that the new GOP tax law so far hasn’t been the boon to American workers that his party promised it would be.
In the run-up to the tax bill’s passage late last year, Republicans argued that a lower corporate tax rate – cut to 21% from 35% – would save companies money that they would then invest in higher salaries and bonuses.
“There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they’re going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers,” Rubio said. “In fact they bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.”
No evidence whatsoever that this scam is working and Rubio is right for once.
I can see this admission in plenty of Democratic political ads this fall.
