GOP Sen. Marco Rubio is not a fan of Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion Build Back Better plan. According to him, it’s straight-up Marxism:
The $3.5 trillion Biden plan isn’t socialism, it’s marxism

But New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman thinks that Rubio’s just being ridiculous and melodramatic:
Ah yes, remember that stirring line in The Communist Manifesto: "Workers of the world, unite to spend 1.2% of GDP on popular programs over the next decade!" pic.twitter.com/hRC9dBzVKS

What is Marco Rubio so worried about? $3.5 trillion is practically nothing! Zero, even! And it’s all for popular programs that everyone wants!
If they're so popular why can't they pass? https://t.co/W8mK3nPJg1

If they were popular, it would be easy to pass the bill. https://t.co/pR0klXwruV

One would think. But then, we’re not economists.
