Factory workers at GM see layoffs, not benefits, after tax cuts
In the short run, the tax law coupled with federal spending acted as a stimulus, a "sugar rush," but there are indicators the economy may slow this year.
By Kathryn Kranhold

"This story was originally published by The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative news organization in Washington, D.C."
"But that's not how it worked out for workers here in northeastern Ohio. In fact, the results, so far, have been the opposite of Trump's promises. GM has shed roughly 3,000 hourly and salaried jobs in the area since the tax cuts."
"But Trump's threats and promises about bringing back jobs to the area could be an empty one, as the tax law's impact on the economy, as limited as it has been, may be coming to an end, economists say."

So, all is not coming up roses for Americans in this country. All that glittered was not gold especially for the GM workers who are now having to sacrifice greatly and their families are suffering also with the Trump tax cuts.

The economy, as a whole, is doing GREAT baby!

But, as usual, there are some people who hate Trump more than they love their country.

There's always a few like that...
Sounds like 2006 to me, remember how great the economy was doing? Sure you do...GOP boom and bust, baby, coming to an economy near you, very soon. Maybe next year. We both know it, but you will never admit it because you are a GOP partisan hack that believes in supply side economics no matter how many times it fails.

That doesn't even make sense. Do you really think that seeing the danger that trump presents to this country means you don't love America? Seriously?

Come on!!! Give it time!!! Or maybe it needs a deadbeat wheeler dealer like Trump to give it another kick start or maybe just to kick the can. Because that's what the GOP does best. See Reagan, Nixon and GWBush for details.
