Rubio to vote 'no' on tax bill unless child tax credit is expanded
The Hill ^ | Dec 14, 2017 | Y ALEXANDER BOLTON AND AVERY ANAPOL

Posted on 12/14/2017 11:17:28 AM PST by 11th_VA

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has threatened to vote against the tax bill, putting the legislation in danger of being delayed past Christmas.

Rubio has told Senate leaders that he will vote against the bill unless the child tax credit is made more generous to help lower-income workers who pay payroll taxes and not regular income taxes.

“Sen. Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the Child Tax Credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said a spokesperson for Rubio.

If Rubio votes against the bill, Republicans can only lose one other lawmaker if they hope to pass the final bill that emerges from a House-Senate conference. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) previously voted against the Senate tax bill because it would add $1.5 billion to the deficit, and no Democrats support it.

Corker has not ruled out voting for the final conference report, though he suggested his concerns have not changed.

He wants an increase in the Earned Income Tax Credit or he will vote no.

And the rest of the Republicans will give it to him.

And millions of illegals who pay NO taxes will get thousands in refunds while millions of Americans will see a tax increase.

Who on the forum supports this? How is it possible for a conservative to support this?

Payroll taxes pay for social security, medicare, ssi, medicaid also for those unable to pay.

Rubio’s idea is nothing less than expanded welfare.

Tax cuts will fail at the hands of Republicans.

The Establishment Uniparty steals trillions of our dollars. They will keep the gravy train running at absolutely any cost.

I’m all for rewarding those who choose to procreate over people that sacrifice their unborn at the alter of Planned Parenthood.

I’ll never vote for him over Trump though.

Rubio is doing his part to help out the OPEN-BORDERS, GLOBALIST Uniparty in its mission to defeat the tax bill so they can cripple the economy. His ‘RAT friends are giving him “at-a-boys” at this very moment.

Good Point - Rubio needs to play ‘Identity Politics’ to survive I guess ...

“See, we tried just like we promised, but darn it, we just didn’t quite have the votes. If you give us a bunch more campaign contributions, we will finally have the votes.”

I guarantee it.

You don’t have kids? This will certainly help me. Times are tough after 8 years of Obama’s ripoffs.
Get the ILLEGALs the hell out of here! That’s a separate issue and this will help many hard working American families.

Rubio is an example of the communists in the Republican party that should be escorted to the door. Here he is advocating transfer payments from people who work to parasites that suck off of HOSTS until the host dies unless the host throws the parasite off. He is just a communist.
The bill may fail and if so blame the communists who wanted to take your property at gun point and give it to parasites. Unless we immediately cut spending 40% we are doomed in 10 years anyway.

rubio is only the start, the tax bill will not go through. They can’t let Trump appear to be successful.

The president had this fool pegged right when he called him “Little” Marco. There’s LITTLE to like about this Swamp Dweller and obvious supporter of illegal aliens!

“Running against Trump in 2020 already, huh ? “

He’s afraid the Puerto Rican’s who came to Florida after the storm will vote against him. Doesn’t Marco realize they are voting against him anyway?

Why is everyone pretending that Americans don’t have children. Conservative families have more kids than Liberals.
