Hour 2: Cenk & Ana. Marco Rubio is working with Ivanka Trump to craft a paid family leave plan that will be appealing to fellow Republicans. According to Rubio, a Republican-friendly paid family leave bill would neither raise taxes nor impose requirements on businesses to provide leave.

Instead of mandating leave, Rubio’s plan would allow workers to draw from Social Security early and then later delay the benefit when they become eligible.
