    Who is it that keeps saying competition is good for the consumer?

    Democrats? "Liberals"?

    The largest employers in each US state - Business Insider

    This Map Shows the Largest Employer in Every State

    The Largest Employer in Every State - 24/7 Wall St.

    The average wage at Walmart is?

    The average net worth of the Walton family members involved in the ownership is?

    Keep wages low, the already wealthy, more wealthy?

    Is the swamp drained or enlarged?

    So, how many corporations are planning on hiring more Americans at what sort of wages, with their tax cuts? How many are planning to continue to do, what they have already done, with their RECORD profits?

    By George, I think you may be on to something.

    Yeah, corporations are gonna be so thankful for the windfall that we will end up paying for that they will be happy to raise wages, benefits and expanding to create more high paying jobs.

    What a genius plan Watson!

    And then the seas will part and the lord Trump will anoint them all with great riches so that they can share in the bonanza just like the CEO's.

    Hold out thy hands working man and catch the riches as they are sure to trickle down to thee.

    Does anyone actually believe this shit? They voted for him so I shouldn't be a bit surprised I guess. LOL

    I wonder why a massive minimum wage increase was not included in this tax plan? Do Republicans "trust" that corporations wont just suck up the tax money and give it to their shareholders, like they always do?

    You understand incorrectly. The idiots on the left that think high corporate tax rates or ANY corporate tax rate hurt or hit or are consumed by the corps are oblivious to reality. The only people this hits is the consumer as that figure MUST be added to the bottom line, for those simple minded static thinking liberals out there...That means that the cost of the tax is one portion of the final price at the sale of the product or service...OR the company goes out of business.

    If liberals would just for once heed this motto. You cannot fix all problems by throwing money at it and it is beyond foolish to keep giving our reps more dollars to squander until they start showing us some responsibility with the massive amount of dollars they have at hand now.

    All Alamaba showed up is that lying smear campaigns work.

    Does THAT work ONLY in one direction or are you simply delusional?

    In the following link, please view all, but especially "Hillary Clinton" and then tell us about how Trump "won" by losing the popular vote by an unprecedented close to 3 million votes and the "winner" by less than 100,000 votes (affecting the EC) still claiming the election was "rigged" against him, even after he won.
