Sen. Marco Rubio Breaks with GOP


At the Tax Day Tea Party rally in Orlando, Florida, Republican Senator Marco Rubio broke with the GOP and declined to defend corporate tax dodgers, as many of his Republican colleagues have done. Instead, the junior senator from Florida agreed that “of course” corporations weren’t paying their fair share, saying “that’s the problem.”

Rubio also said that corporations are only able to avoid paying taxes because they can “afford to hire lobbyists to change the tax code or lawyers to figure it out.” The Florida Republican then went on to agree that he would like to see Congress do more to close these tax loopholes that corporations currently take advantage of.
