The Most Surprising Moment of the Fox Business Network Debate

T

Rand Paul put Marco Rubio on defense. Jeb Bush couldn’t do it. Donald Trump couldn’t do it. Rand Paul did it.

Of all things, Paul put Rubio on the defense about Rubio’s child tax credit plan. Paul pointed out that it’d essentially be a massive spending program. Rubio tried to pivot in the exchange to make it about his defense plan, which Paul also attacked. But Rubio had no answer for Paul on the child tax credit.

It was amazing and surprising that Paul was able to do what no one else could do — put Rubio on defense.
