Today, Ford Motor Company announced that it's cancelling its plans to build a Mexico plant. Instead, it will add 700 new jobs to Michigan's economy.

Thank God liberals only control the (weak) U.S. House! If they were able to raise corporate taxes, America would become a sh'ithole nation in short order.

We could only be so lucky.

Taxes are too low in this country. We need to punish the rich.

Those Democrats do not have a clue. The people running the corporations know what profits they are going to take home, if they stick on this tax, all the increase will be passed on to the consumer, since it is across the board, all corporations will jack up prices, including importers who buy China stuff and sell it to retailers. It will raise up stuff at Amazon too, they are a corporation.

Only an idiot would believe this does not happen, Trump's reduction actually stopped price increases of corporations and allowed them money to expand or sometimes give bonuses.

Did any of these Democrats even pay attention in Economics class or were they too busy chatting in the halls at school with other students.

They have a clue. You're making a mistake when you think they don't know what they're doing.

They know exactly what they're doing. They know higher taxes will choke and kill any economic progress being made.

That's exactly what they want.

They want to bring this country to its knees and then "offer" their totalitarian solution.

They're not stupid--their followers are, but not them. They want to make the country so weak and its citizens so desperate they will put up little resistance to their agenda.

They are f# evil and enemies of liberty. Get any notion of them meaning well outta your head.

#MeToo


I found it really funny that older people like me who don't use twitter and didn't understand the word "hashtag" read about the sexual abuse movement that women put together to address grievances and read the movement name as "pound me too".

I was really confused for a month or two on that till my daughter explained it.

Excuse the off-topic post please mods.

You've just won the entire INTERNET!! I don't think that one can be topped!!

No egg for CWM.
The Twitter poster got the date wrong.
If anything, regardless of the date, CWM's point still holds up.

Sorry guys, but the economy as it is will only get worse. And trump or any other president were likely to elect will make little difference with that, except maybe to accelerate it. At any rate, didn’t the wealthy just get billions in tax breaks and promise to create tons of jobs? Guess y’all didn’t get the memo of how that money was spent. Here’s a hint, not creating jobs. 92% of it was used in buybacks and dividends to falsely raise stocks. Because we don’t have a production economy anymore. It’s all service and financial instruments, largely fraud. So keep thinking the corporations will build new factories and create better products. Keep believing the msm that the economy is doing better. Meanwhile factories are closing. Middle class earners are becoming waiters. And personal debt is rapidly growing. Oh, and we pay off the farmers for all their business his policies are costing so they don’t go broke too.

Stop being blind. National debt is ballooning and will only continue to increase faster. Personal debt will only continue to grow and at an ever increasing pace. And more and more of the money will continue to go to a smaller and smaller group of ultra rich. But hey, who cares about obvious patterns and easily observable trends. Let’s stick with speaking points and Vague presidential pep take, or better yet reports from the msm and other groups that we know lie to us on a daily basis.

House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) has
announced that the forthcoming budget blueprint will call for a 33 percent corporate income tax rate by hiking the rate from 21 percent to 28 percent.
This would make the U.S. a less competitive place to do business and make the U.S. statutory rate higher than many developed competitors.
State corporate taxes average 6 percent across the U.S, so this planned tax hike would give the U.S. an average top corporate rate of 34 percent.
The current combined corporate rate across the 36 member Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) is currently 23.7 percent.
This proposed tax hike would make the U.S. rate higher than major competitors such as the United Kingdom (19 percent), China (25 percent), Canada (26.8 percent), Germany (29.8 percent), and Ireland (12.5 percent).
"Hiking the tax rate on American businesses will kill jobs, lower wages, and reduce new investment in America," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. "Why do the Democrats want to damage American competitiveness and job creation?"


Bold is mine.

www.atr.org...


So democrats have established they don't want border security.
They've already attacked gun rights.
They've supported tearing down statues so we know where they stand on free expression.

Now they want to raise taxes.


Not really surprized. But I had been tongue-in-cheek when I stated that they probably would raise taxes.

I had no idea that they hate us having our money so much!



Communism at its finest...They like to call it Progressivism, or Democratic Socialism...No middle class...Rich and poor...And the poor rely on the gov't for everything...The Mayor of New York City even admitted on tv they want to eliminate all private property...You'll have to work but you won't need money...The gov't will provide everything...Food stamps for everyone...Rent vouchers...And the worst part is they will make all immigration legal and we'll be infiltrated with muzlims like they are in Europe...We're already getting American hating muzlims in Congress...We had muzlims running for Governors...Democrats WILL vote them in...

I see you got one more star than you deserved...The economy is booming...Help wanted signs all over the place...Apple and Samsung will likely be moving back to the US creating thousands more jobs...Farmers have received gov't subsidies for decades...Personal debt is growing because people are making more money...Don't know if you are that misinformed or just making this stuff up...
