ROFLMAO! Since President Trump and the GOP passed their tax cut bill earlier today:
AT&T announced they will give 200,000 US employees a $1,000 bonus and they will
bump their capital expendures in the US by $1 Billion dollars.
Wells Fargo announced it will raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Fifth Third Bank Corp announced it will give its employees a $1,000 bonus and
raise their minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Comcast announced that it will give $1,000 bonuses to its employees and increase
infrastructure investment in the US by $50 Billion dollars.
Boeing announced it will spend $300 Million on dollars on employee bonuses
and charitable investments.
And in addition, President Trump has eliminated thousands of pages of Obama's job killing
rules, regulations and bureaucratic red tape.
This is the most pro middle class, pro job creating and pro growth tax reform in decades.
More than 80% of US households will get tax cuts.
Small businesses will pay the lowest tax Tate since 1931.
And 13 million Americans will no longer be forced to pay for Obama's big
government health care coverage. They are free to choose the health care they want
at the price they want. It means a 55 year old man is no longer forced to buy
big government health care insurance that covers sex change operations
and drug addiction rehab.
Obamacare was already in a death spiral, the insurance companies pulled out,
the exchanges had collapsed, the premiums and deductibles were skyrocketing..
The GOP tax bill gives health care choices back to the American people
where it belongs. If they want Obamacare they can still get it. The difference
is the government can no longer force them to buy it!
