Rubio will vote against GOP tax plan if child tax credit isnt expanded

Source: McClatchy

WASHINGTON

Republicans in Congress are poised to release legislation soon that would revamp the nation’s tax code for the first time since Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

But Sen. Marco Rubio is insisting that a child tax credit he’s championed for years must be part of the package, or else he’ll vote against the plan. Rubio and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, are proposing an increase in the nation’s child tax credit to at least $2,000 per child, up from the current limit of $1,000 per child.

“I’m not going to vote for an increase on the middle class,” Rubio said. “But we’re not going to get to that point. We’re not that crazy around here.”

Rubio has been working with President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka for months on the plan, and she was on Capitol Hill on Wednesday for to pitch the plan with a group of Republicans including Rubio.

2. Won't believe this until we see it in the vote. The rethugs always say "the right things", but vote

differently. They gotta start walking the talking.

6. I don't support the child tax credit.

I would be more receptive if, instead, checks were mailed to people. These type of tax credits have people thinking that tax cuts are something other than expenditures.

9. Personally they should just give anyone that makes atleast $5000 a year but

not more than 250% over the federal poverty level a $10,000 tax return as that would help out alot of people.
