Rubio admits what Goodlatte won’t

Ever since Congressman Goodlatte and his fellow Republicans in Congress approved a massive tax cut that overwhelmingly helps corporations and the very rich, he has tried to tout the supposed benefits to ordinary working people by highlighting one-time bonuses (not actual wage increases) that some employers have provided.

But inconveniently for Goodlatte and other Congressional Republicans, their GOP colleague, Senator Marco Rubio, gave the game away in an interview with The Economist magazine.

“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] says. “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.”

Oops.
