File under: Are straight people okay?
Conservative flapping head Ann Coulter has taken to Twitter to both condemn Sen. Marco Rubio, and let us in on the depressing state of her reality.
Coulter is upset at Rubio for pushing a child tax credit increase in the Republican tax bill. She claimed in a weepy tweet amounted to subsidizing “happy families.”
We singles live empty lives of quiet desperation and will die alone. Now Rubio is demanding that we also fund happy families with children who fill their days with joy.

Twitter reacted as Twitter tends to, rolling around in the joy of the Schadenfreude.
KIDS: Trick or treat!
ANN COULTER: NO! You're not getting any candy because I'm lonely and will die alone!!!

I’m not sure what to make of this: I’m single, poor, and one of my cats is literally named “my son” in Spanish and yet my life appears to be happier and fuller than Ann Coulter’s. pic.twitter.com/wnV1yJTTlq

Coming out against supporting happiness is the most Ann Coulter thing she could of said at Christmas.

He threatened to not back the bill unless the change was made, and now that it has been, he is back onboard. Families who owe no federal income taxes will now be able to still claim up to $1,400 of the $2,000 child tax credit, up from $1,100 in the original version, reports The New York Times.
For far too long, Washington has ignored and left behind the American working class. Increasing the refundability of the Child Tax Credit from 55% to 70% is a solid step toward broader reforms which are both Pro-Growth and Pro-Worker.

Ann, honey, you’re doing freedom from parental responsibilities all wrong if you think it has to be a bum trip.
Maybe it’s not being childless that’s to blame for your sadness. Maybe it’s just the inevitable result of living a selfish, cold existence, and there are incentives galore for that in the new tax bill. Merry Christmas.
