Sen. Marco Rubio and The Wall Street Journal each landed body blows in their ongoing feud over tax reform and the Republican's pet issue — the child tax credit.

The Journal's editorial board punched first Wednesday, saying that Rubio, R-Fla., doesn't know how economies grow. The newspaper jabbed at Rubio's recent statement that Republicans "probably went too far" in helping corporations.

Rubio then took to Twitter to counterpunch:

Rubio successfully leveraged his vote for the tax reform bill last month for more concessions to the child tax credit.

"The irony is that Mr. Rubio criticizes the corporate cut on grounds that it won't produce much economic growth. Yet he takes a victory lap on the expanded child credit he demanded as the price of his vote.

"This special break for some families has no discernible growth effect. That's because the child credit does not — say it again — change the incentive to work or invest," the newspaper wrote in its editorial.
