The leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade has all hell breaking loose.
Everyone in Washington, D.C. is scrambling to react.
And one Republican Senator just had the best response ever to the Supreme Court leak.
As the Supreme Court potentially prepares to reverse the disastrously decided Roe v. Wade decision, woke corporations are stepping in to the breach.
At least 20 red states are expected to pass some sort of ban on abortion should the court overturn Roe.
Now woke corporations like Apple, Amazon, and Yelp are preparing to pay for employees’ transportations to blue states where Democrats allow for abortion mills to end the lives of unborn babies.
But Florida Senator Marco Rubio had a response to their schemes.
Rubio introduced the No Tax Breaks for Radical Corporate Activism Act.
In a statement accompanying the announcement of the bill, Rubio explained that public policy should benefit American families and promote a “culture of life.”
“Our tax code should be pro-family and promote a culture of life. Instead, too often our corporations find loopholes to subsidize the murder of unborn babies or horrific ‘medical’ treatments on kids. My bill would make sure this does not happen,” Rubio’s statement read.
In an op-ed in Newsweek, Rubio doubled down, explaining that the tax code should not be used to advance the political goals of woke corporations.
“Public policy should be used to strengthen families, not woke executives. We must work to strip the latter of undeserved benefits while empowering the former,” Rubio wrote, adding that the tax code should not be used by work corporations to “help their employees kill their unborn children.”
Rubio explained how the bill would stop woke corporations from paying for employees to travel to obtain abortions.
“Under current tax law, businesses can deduct all expenses that are ‘ordinary and necessary’ for carrying on a trade or business, including employee health care plans, some medical expenses, or other benefits offered as a part of an employee compensation package. This bill would explicitly prohibit employers from deducting – and, as a result, taxpayers from subsidizing – their employee’s travel costs to obtain an abortion or employee’s children’s gender transition expenses,” the statement from Rubio’s office read.
If the Supreme Court strikes down Roe v. Wade and red states are able to pass abortion bans, the next battle front will be blue states and woke companies offering inducements for travel to receive abortions.
And Florida will be once again at the center of the fight against woke corporations.
