Marco Rubio: I Have A Plan To Further Another Long Held Democratic Dream.

Not content with helping in usher permanent liberal majorities through mass amnesty, Marco Rubio has a proposal to advance the ball on paid family leave.

"Our policies should help workers, not cost them their jobs," the Florida senator will say, according to excerpts provided by his campaign. "I believe we can fix this problem by creatively applying our free enterprise principles in a way that encourages businesses to choose to offer more paid family leave."

...

"They say the only way to solve this problem is to raise taxes, grow government, and place crippling requirements on private companies," Rubio will say, per his prepared remarks, referencing Obamacare. "I believe we can fix this problem by creatively applying our free enterprise principles in a way that encourages businesses to choose to offer more paid family leave."

And what's the "free enterprise" solution to this problem that's none of the government's business? Why another tax credit of course. Companies will get a credit for 25% of the wages they spend on an employee up to $4,000 over 12 weeks.

The left is naturally embracing this compromise position. No wait. They are doing what they always do...say it's not enough.

This is how government grows. Liberals identify a problem that the government "must do something about". Conservatives point out that it's not the government's place to do this. Then Team GOP moderates come in with a big-government "conservative" idea. Democrats claim the moderate GOP idea is cheap and propose something even bigger and something between the leftwing dream and Team GOP's idea is adopted. And then it grows. And grows. And grows. And then the leftwing dream is realized.

The reality is the Team GOP types will ALWAYS be outbid by the left. There's no margin for small government conservatives in playing this game.

But hey, Rubio gives lovely speeches. So go with that.
