and invest an additional $1 billion in the United States in 2018



NEW YORK — AT&T Inc said on Wednesday it will pay $1,000 bonuses to more than 200,000 employees and invest an additional $1 billion in the United States in 2018 once a tax reform bill approved by Congress is signed into law.

Yes AT&T is doing that and so is COMCAST. That is great and shows that they know this Tax Cut for the rich is bad and gives nothing to the middle class and poor so they are passing some of the excess they are getting back. Lets see how many other business do that. Now lets look at what is really happening to others.

1. Over 13 million will loose health care and that means some people will die due to lack of care.

2. The CHIP program has not been extended and will not be before next year due to the time it took to get the Tax Cut for the rich. That means children will die. We see some cases on TV tonight.

Here is one last item in the news tonight. The UN General Assembly will hold a Special session next week to condemn the US for what it is doing in Israel when there are people being killed. Trump said tonight the US will be watching the vote. No aid (money) for countries that vote against the US. That means people die around the world since a lot of our aid is for health programs.

Notice anything the same in all of this. People die in everything the far right rep. are doing. That seems to be something they like based on their actions. Well how does it feel to be part of a country whose government seems to go out of its way to see people die. Did you ever think the US would sink to this level. This is what happens when you put far right rep in charge who are lead by a President with mental problems. Are we all proud of the US and what it is doing. The far right are. Look at what they say, and do. How do we end this decline of the US. Vote out every one with an R behind their name. We allowed this to happen to the US by not doing that when we new what Trump was like for years, and that the far right has been doing this for the last 200 years.

Fact: Der Trumper behaves like a spoiled 6-year-old.

AT&T just made him look good to his lofo base.

Therefore AT&T deserves something nice from Der Trumper, like approval of the merger now being blocked by the SEC as a violation of anti-monopoly laws

 

Der Trumper has announced to the World the office of President is open for business and will be exchanging favors with those who offer praise and adulation to Der Trumper.

AT&T gets a taxscam worth billions and gives workers a ONE TIME CHECK for 10% of the windfall. Meanwhile, AT&T has attempted to improve its fortunes by merging with a number of companies and has been repeatedly blocked by the SEC.

 

Now that ATT has delivered cheers to Der Trumper, does anyone doubt a new set of officials in the SEC will approve ATT's NEXT merger attempt?

 

Der Trumper has moved Pay to Play to the National Level. I think fans of Will Harding will be pleased that he may no longer go down as the most corrupt US President, but for the rest of us, it was nice having a democracy for all those years before Der Trumper.

That is exactly what I was thinking this wasn't a raise, this was a one-time Christmas Bonus. Gee, most companies still give those, all they did was publicize their as a political gimmick.

I suppose you are interested in lining the pockets of our DIMWIT IN CHIEF.



Because, while a couple of hundred thousand A.T. and T. employees (Union employees only) are getting $1,000, our con artist in residence Donald Trump (the greedy piece of crap he is), under his tax plan, comes into a windfall of $11,000,000.



Sounds fair in the TRUMP-O-NOMICS world.



Most companies will use any savings for stock buy-backs and dividends..... very little will reach employees. ATT will be the exception rather than the rule.



Historically this is true and there is no reason to think companies will act differently this time.



Additionally, this tax windfall for the rich will increase the deficit and, at some point precipitate a recession.



Why don't you check how many of the population of the United States, as a whole, thinks this tax plan is "GREAT NEWS FOR OUR COUNTRY" as you do.



I think you will find that you are in a minority of 24%.


Sad............

=============================

Making things up seems to be SOP for the left.

I never said that the tax plan will be great for everyone.. Read what this thread is about...please! It's about one thing...what T is doing thanks to the tax plan.

When the 75% get their pay check we will see how things shape up.

As to the 21% tax rate for companies. large and small, its gong to be hard to determine were that savings will go. But it will help our economy.

I find what is sad is when you bash a thread that is good news...but unexpected from you and your record.
