Little Marco Mouths Off. Accidentally Tells The Truth

Little Marco Mouths Off. Accidentally Tells The Truth
They'll get him for this.

https://www.economist.com/news/united-st...offers-his


Quote: The president’s scheme to revive the 1970s economy through protectionism and deregulation is unrealistic, as Mr Rubio—who these days dares not criticise Mr Trump—cannot help but acknowledge. “The future is going to happen,” he says. “I have no problem with bringing back American car-manufacturing facilities, but, whether they’re American robots or Mexican robots, they’re going to be highly automated.” Most Republican congressmen meanwhile remain entranced by the limited-government shibboleths he has shaken off, as his fight over the tax bill revealed. Mr Rubio’s proposal, to double the tax credit to $2,000 per child and pay for it by making a small increase to the corporate rate his party wanted, was decried by some Republicans as socialism. The watered-down version they accepted, as the price of Mr Rubio’s support for the bill, excluded the poorest families. “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,” he 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.” That shows how resistant Mr Rubio’s party will be to the changes he wants. “I’m a minority within a minority,” he says.

Looks good in  a suit, and your vorlon has ways of keeping him busy so he won't be mouthing off all the time . . . .

 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

The NY Times seems to agree with Little Marco.  That should be the kiss of death for him with the Trumptards.

Quote:How’s That Tax Cut Working Out?

Quote:In short, the effects of the Trump tax cut are already looking like the effects of the Brownback tax cut in Kansas, the Bush tax cut and every other much-hyped tax cut of the past three decades: big talk, big promises, but no results aside from a swollen budget deficit.

You might think that the G.O.P. would eventually learn something from this experience, realize that tax cuts aren’t magical, and come up with some different ideas. But I guess it’s difficult for a man to understand something when his campaign contributions depend on his not understanding it.

Looks like Krugman and Little Marco were right.

Quote:Apple Says It Will Buy Back $100 Billion in Stock

Quote: Since Apple said in January that it would bring back most of the $252 billion it held abroad under the new tax law, investors have wondered what the company would do with the enormous cash pile. On Tuesday, those investors learned that they are in line for a big chunk of the money.
Apple said it would buy back an additional $100 billion in stock, by far the largest increase in its already historic record of returning capital to investors. The company didn’t provide a timeline for the repurchases. Apple also increased its dividend by 16 percent to 73 cents a share, pushing past Exxon Mobil to become the largest dividend payer, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.
Apple’s stock buyback fits into a broader trend of companies using the financial windfall from President Trump’s tax cut to reward shareholders. Share buybacks, which are reaching record levels, are great for investors, including executives and employees, because they reliably lift stock prices by limiting the supply of shares for sale.

But seriously, did anyone actually think that anything else would happen?  These corporate fucks spent a lot of money to put republicunts in office and they didn't do that to benefit the working class.  Nah, fuck those dumb flag-waving shits who still believe in the 'Murrican dream.
