    If Rubio gets this child tax credit thing done

    I may be willing to forgive his various misdeeds.

    Don't fail me little Marco.

    Can you please explain to me how giving huge tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and increasing the deficit by $1.5 trillion over the next decade is a good thing? Do you guys own private jets and run hedge funds?
    I honestly don’t understand how middle class people can be so for this tax plan. Help me understand your thinking on this.
    Thanks for any replies.

    Looks like Rubio is in, and so is Corker. Could be a done deal!

    I work for a wealthy guy.

    They could also consider, you know, cutting spending.

    Do you invest? Just the NEWS about tax cuts made my IRA shoot up substantially the past few weeks. Yeah, I benefit.

    If you call 2.6% huge, my boss would love to have you as an employee.

    I invest a very healthy percentage into my Thrift Savings Plan (government employee/military version of a 401K) and I have been making bank on that for sure. Wall Street does love tax cuts and deregulation. Also, living in a red state I think I may pay less in federal taxes for the first couple of years.
    Like I inferred above, I’m not going to argue in this thread. I genuinely want to understand the rationale.

    Can we please not argue in this thread? At least not until page 4 or Comic chimes in, whichever happens first.

    I'm just here to talk about the child tax credit. I express no opinion regarding any other matter.
