It's amusing to see so many get bent out of shape because people are keeping a little more of their own money.

I don't care for Tales of the Crypt Nancy who can barely make it through a news conference with out freezing up, but she is right.

Giving bonuses makes corporate America less competitive. The complaint was that the corporate taxes made corporations in the US unable to compete.

Giving bonuses and raises to workers makes Corporate America less competitive. The corps giving bonuses are being irresponsible.

It has always been this way for everyone.

Its nice to dream....but the reality is that life is hard and people struggle. We all do. Except a few.


What a defeatist attitude that is. Like life is just hard and we shouldn't fight to make it better, we shouldn't strive to close the wealth inequality gap because that's just the way it is. The rich are rich for a reason so they must deserve it and god has ordained that only they shall enjoy the full benefits that this world has to offer. So if a corporation makes it's fortune off the back of poorly/barely paid foreign labor that is a stones throw away from slavery we should just accept it because obviously the CEO's and board members worked hard for their 6/7 figure salaries. Thanks for the peanuts, I guess it reminds us just how much better the American worker has it, We make $8.75 an hour vs .35 cent per hour. Yeah baby we're winning over here. MAGA and god bless Merica woooo!


Been there, done that. Instead of complaining, I went and got a better job.

It didn't happen overnight, but I was incentivized to better my way of life.

Try it sometime. Less complain, more motivate.

A lot of so-called pastors will soon be cranking up their "Give God More $$!" rhetoric.

When I see any pastor cough up their mega mansions, then I might consider. . . . .

Sorry, but they don't target rational people. You're out of luck, sir.

It takes time to see if Trump tax giveaways to the corporations will actually affect the macro economy in any effective way.
Obama did something similar in the stimulus package of over 800 bill he did to get the economy moving

This massive tax cut for the corps probably wont equal that since most of these cuts will go to the corps paying dividends

Just keep in mind the fact that Obama left Trump a great economy

Whereas Bush left Obama a virtual depression.

I for one will never begrudge any raising of the serf classess wages and they getting bonusus. WONDERFUL

Just keep in mind democrats have always tried to help the poor whereas the GOP AND THEIR ZILLIONAIRE MASTERS had to be virtually bribed to help them and even yet we don’t know what this will end up doing

The tax cuts were tax cuts meaning that they are taking a little less from us.

It should be celebrated!

Now we, as a people, can focus on spending cuts!


And then term limits!

And then smaller government!

If the corps are not paying for the gross costs of govt, the tax payer will be.

The only thing was with the corps paying higher taxes is you could opt out of buying the product that is laden confiscatory levels of taxes. When personal taxes go up, you will have to pay them.

And consumer prices for goods/services are not set by overhead+taxes+modest profit=price. Prices are set by what the market will bear.

Hear here.

(2) 2 year term limits congres
(1) 4 year term limit senate
(1) 4 year term limit POTUS and appointed cabinet

And

(1) 4 year limit for all .gov employees, every single last one of them.

We can automate the rest for 'continuity'.

With a globe trotting military and slick corporate subsidizes (welfare) at every turn our govt is not cheap to run, and some one is going to pay for it. Want to guess who that is (hint it isn't the poor and it isn't the rich).

We all know that government (republican or democrat) spends our money like a sailor on shore leave after 2 years at sea.

We need to focus on waste and corruption because government won't police themselves.

Let's not cut taxes before we have cuts in the costs.

Put down the bottle and walk away. Anyone who interrupts the gravy train is literally going to be Clintoned.
