Remember that ‘Apocolypse’ Nancy Pelosi promised as a result of those tax cuts? Make mine a double.
What were we told by the left — do you remember?
That Trump was just lining the pockets of his crony buddies, right? That these tax dollars would just make fat cats even fatter and the little guy would get the shaft.
And then the tax reform got signed.
What happened … immediately?
Christmas bonuses. Big ones. All over the place.
In a shocking reversal to all the envy-mongers on the Left — who begrudge most businessmen any success they may get — the money WAS passed along to the worker.
And it didn’t take a change in legislation, or veiled government threat to make it happen, either.
And now for the cherry on top.
The Liberals’ favorite whipping boy stepped up.
Walmart — the company they love to hate (and, incidentally, the world’s largest Private employer, including 1.4 Million Americans) got in on the action.
How much did Walmart like these tax changes?
Walmart Stores Inc said on Thursday it would raise entry-level wages for hourly employees to $11 an hour as it benefits from the biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in 30 years.
The world’s largest retailer said the increase would take effect in February and that it would also expand maternity and parental leave benefits and offer a one-time cash bonus, based on length of service, of up to $1,000.
The pay increase and bonus will benefit more than 1 million U.S. hourly workers, it said.
…’We are in the early stages of assessing the opportunities tax reform creates for us,’ President and Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon said in a statement. The tax law gives the retailer an opportunity to be more competitive globally and to accelerate investment plans for the United States, he said.
The increase in wages will cost approximately $300 million on top of wage hike plans that had been included in next fiscal year’s plans, the company said.
The company is offering a one-time bonus to all full and part-time employees based on their length of service, rising to $1000 for employees with 20 years of service. The one-time bonus will amount to $400 million in the current fiscal year.
You can add this to that long list of predictions that Liberals got wrong.
And yet they STILL think they should be calling the shots.
Occupy Democrats Logic FB page framed it succinctly:
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:
And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:
Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
