Rubio to vote ‘no’ on tax bill

21

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has threatened to vote against the tax bill, putting the legislation in danger of being delayed past Christmas.

Rubio has told Senate leaders that he will vote against the bill unless the child tax credit is made more generous to help lower-income workers who pay payroll taxes and not regular income taxes.

If Rubio votes against the bill, Republicans can only lose one other lawmaker if they hope to pass the final bill that emerges from a House-Senate conference.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders dodged on whether Trump would support further expanding the child tax credit.

“We’re going to continue working with the senator, but we’ve made great strides,” she said.
“I think he’ll get there. He’s really been a great guy, very supportive,” Trump told reporters later in the day when asked about Rubio’s vote. “I think that Sen. Rubio will be there, very shortly.”
