Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is absolutely furious that the Biden administration wants to make the $300 per child tax credit permanent, and seems to be suggesting that children should have to work instead of letting their parents get a small break on their taxes.
Perhaps sensing that he’s already on the verge of losing to his likely Democratic challenger, Rep. Val Demmings, in next year’s Senate election, Rubio thought he’d brand the child tax credit “socialism.”
Is Rubio under the impression that the government pays parents $300 a month so they don’t send their kids to work? Or he is suggesting that anyone getting a meager child tax credit will stay home and benefit from that paltry sum?
Either way, Rubio’s arithmetic is all fouled up. It costs a hell of a lot more than $300 a month to feed, clothe, and care for a child. Any parent can tell you that. So are we supposed to let those who earn the least provide for their kids when they’re having trouble keeping a roof over their heads?
Apparently, Rubio thinks waging class warfare over $300 is going to get him lots of votes in Florida, which only proves just how utterly clueless he is and always will be.
The Florida senator was pelted with well-deserved online backlash for his snotty tweet:
Time for Florida to dump Marco Rubio and get a senator who gives a damn about them.
