On the point of the thread, Walmart clarified their bonuses the trumpies were trumpeting. $1000 bonuses will be given to those who have worked for Walmart for twenty years ... can you imagine what kind of person would have worked for Walmart for twenty years? How few of such wretches there would be? Those working fewer years will get significantly lower bonuses paid for by the money saved from laying off workers at Sam's Clubs.

Why do you continue with this bullshit. The closing of the Sams clubs has nothing to do with this. They are underperforming and need to close the period. WM is saving 100's of millions with the tax break and that is why they are giving bonuses and raising the starting wage to 11 bucks. They are also doing other benefits and will announce more in the coming months. Spin it any way you want and watch it continue to bit ur side in the ass.

Walmart was closing locations long before Trump became president.

Jan. 15, 2016

"List of the 154 U.S. stores Walmart is closing"

"Walmart announced Friday that is closing 269 stores worldwide as it sharpens its focus on its supercenters and e-commerce business."

It's a good sign that some of that is trickling down to us lowly tax payers.
I wish our tax cuts didn't expire.
But, who knows what the future holds?
I will benefit from this bill because the standard deduction is doubled.


Really? You were told by the Pelosis out there that you would be paying more in taxes. See how the left works?

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) said late Thursday it will distribute special bonuses to U.S. employees and add 2,500 new jobs as a result of the tax reform bill signed by President Donald Trump.


The Italian-American automaker will pay each U.S. hourly and salaried employee a $2,000 bonus in the second quarter of 2018. The plan includes a total of 60,000 workers, excluding senior leadership.

Fiat Chrysler said the tax plan will enable the company to invest more than $1 billion in additional funds in the factory, where it will build the next generation of Ram heavy-duty pickup trucks once production shifts from Mexico in 2020.

Why didn't you post stuff like this when companies were closing hundreds of stores during the Obama presidency? Cause yer a fake, that's why.


"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday slammed President Trump’s tax reform that led to companies giving as large as $2,000 bonuses as “crumbs,” despite praising Obama-era $40 tax cut to workers as a “victory for America” in 2011."

People like Rickyticky detest the Walmarts and want them run out on a rail for what they do to the "little guy in business"....that is until they start laying off workers, then they detest them for that. If they weren't so disgusting, they would be funny.

And, you managed to pass one whole piece of significant legislation in that time. Your racist agenda has a record number of Regressives retiring from Congress and a president setting record lows in popularity.

Dem agenda? Addressing debt and deficits that you piggies squealed about non-stop, until you were told to stop and swallow bigger debt and deficits so the rich could get richer still. Since the wealthy have been the only ones to benefit from decades of growing debt, of redistributing income upward, they will be taxed much higher. Dems trust Science more than rightard internet propagandists, so there will be more done to address climate change and renewable energy, like everybody else in the world is doing. The rest of the world is developing new technology, while Deplorables are washing coal in their bathtubs. Dems are also moving toward universal health care, while you are kept wetting your panties with threats of the SOSHALIZM boogey man. Dems are pushing for improvements in education, while your herd is getting suckered to pay for private education for the wealthy. Dems are pushing civil rights for all, while your herd is clinging desperately to racial, ethnic and sexual scapegoats, so you can have somebody to blame for your inability to compete. Democrats believe in having a thoughtful, stable leader who can speak English. Regressives are standing behind an inarticulate, blustering, cowardly brat, because he panders to losers by bashing those who look down on an ignorant base who are easily frightened into voting against their own interests. The party is now afraid of the Deplorable tiger they have been riding but now are too frightened of to dismount.

There is a reason red state Rightardia is America's third world, and you are part of it.

So, why are the liberetardo deep blue high tax states moaning and whining because their high taxes now have deduction limits.

Sounds like a blue state subsidy to me.
