Bible-thumping Marco Rubio sparks backlash by attacking child tax credit

Marco Rubio has been relatively insignificant in politics since he failed to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Sure, he hypocritically tweeted his Bible verses every day in a show of conservative piety and continued to book appearances at all right-wing media outlets, but his presidential aspirations were reduced like others, more Trump -like GOP potential opponents like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem took over oblivion, Senator Rubio’s chances of achieving his ambition seems more likely than ever.

However, Rubio hangs on posting what value right-handed extremist goodness signaled (at least if you count the lack of empathy for other people as a virtue) on Twitter in hopes of keeping his name lives on for the next major presidential term of the Republic. , knowing that his social media activities will help somehow in his re-election campaign for his senatorial seat in his own state next year.

Rubio may have made a strategic mistake in one of his recent posts, however.

In a tweet attacking his Democratic rival for the Senate seat, Congresswoman Val Demmings (D-FL), Rubio set his targets in his support of President Biden’s Build Back Better legislative package which includes many progressive priorities cursed at the reactionary MAGA hordes, including an anti -poverty provision that would provide $ 300 per month to each child in a family.

Add your name to ask Congress to raise the minimum wage to $ 15 per hour!

Rubio’s description of the proposed anti-poverty measure as socialism and his less subtle reference to a “companion” Soviet style could naturally come to a politician relying on the support of a large population of opponents. -cuban communists outcast (don ‘Call them immigrants, though -that would blow up nativists in the GOP).

Unfortunately, Rubio’s rote post left him open to a criticism as simple as shooting marlin in a barrel, and it’s not the only bizarre implication that the Florida senator might want to repeal labor laws. of the child and place the babies on the assembly lines.

Yes, it appears that for all his holy tweeting, Rubio has not been attentive to performing the basic functions of his own work during his position.

Perhaps Senator Rubio should take some time to ponder the implications of his social media posts on his own record as a legislator before hitting the tweet button.
