Rubio Admission on Corporate Tax Cuts “Too Little, Too Late”

“Rubio knew as well as anyone that the bill he voted for wouldn’t help workers, but he voted for it anyway.”

 

Washington, DC – This morning, following Senator Marco Rubio’s statement that “there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money‘s been massively poured back into the American worker” as a result of last year’s corporate tax cuts, the Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires and former managing director at BlackRock Morris Pearl released the following statement:

 

“I’m glad to see that Senator Rubio has finally come to terms with the fact that the massive corporate tax cut he voted for is doing nothing to help American workers, but his admission is too little, too late. This isn’t news to anyone who’s been paying attention – we all knew long before the bill passed that it would almost exclusively help millionaires, billionaires, and multinational corporations. Rubio knew as well as anyone that the bill he voted for wouldn’t help workers, but he voted for it anyway.

 

Maybe I’m wrong, maybe Senator Rubio was actually misinformed about the effects of the Republican tax bill, and now he sincerely regrets voting for it. In that case, I look forward to his public commitment to rolling back the egregious corporate tax cuts that again, he voted for.”
