    Is there a “Democrat” in that picture?

    Have you noticed people are saying “Merry Christmas”? I’m realling digging and loving it. And they’re saying with a genuine smile, as if they, heck, because FREE people are HAPPY people.

    Now, this tax bill is sort of cruel… in my case I’ll see a 1000 bucks less Federal Tax.. but some people who bought their homes in the last 15 years are gonna pay much more. Hint, I live in Coastal SoCal. Prop 13 helps us a lot.

    I sure hope those deductions are indexed for inflation.. and sure hope the feds start to take into account the real inflation.

    TRUMP EFFECT: AT&T Announces it Will Pay 200,000 US Employees ‘Special $1,000 Bonus’ Due to GOP Tax Reform Bill

    This is the biggest tax overhaul in 30 years.

    AT&T quickly responded to this historical tax cut and announced Wednesday it will be issuing over 200,000 U.S. employees a special $1,000 bonus and will also increase US capital spending by $1 billion.

        I’ll probably get rocks thrown at me, but I have been with AT&T for a long time, and every problem I have had, and they have been few, has been resolved by their PR folks.
        It took me over an hour to renegotiate my Internet coverage.. I went over during the Trump Rallies… but ended up with a better deal.
        Just my experience, but I, personally, have no problems w/them.

      Someone responded that AT & T has let 80,000 people go so this bonus is nothing. I asked for a link because I couldn’t find anything.

      Anyone have any info on this?

        The bonus is *something* for the 200K workers it applies to.

          I know the bonus is for 200,000, but when I mentioned it on FB someone came right back that it doesn’t matter AT & T has let 80,000 go. I asked for a link and the person is being obnoxious and I can’t find anything about that. I was just wondering if anyone else knew any information about this 80,000 people they supposedly let go.

      I am really hoping that given that AT&T, Wells Fargo, Fifth Third have all announced bonuses and pay increases for employees if the bill is signed by Christmas, that the democrats would see the writing on the wall and waive PAYGO. But that would mean they can make rational decisions and there is no basis to think that.

        President Trump is already the best President because he saved the nation and the world from Hillary Clinton. My blood runs cold just thinking about where we would be today had she won the Electoral College. God bless the memory of those men who saw to it that the Electoral College became part of our United States Constitution.

        God bless President Trump and his Administration with courage, fortitude, truth, justice, and health…and bless him for enabling the men and women of Congress to do their duty toward the American people. Without his leadership they would have remained nervous nellies, beholden to the interests which could care less about the American people.

        It’s no time to let up on the pressure. This is but one battle won and the war for the heart of our nation still rages. May each man and women that SERVES US put on their suits of armor and continue to win for us all.

    Think of the brilliance of passing ANWR.

    In every previous year, ANWR would have been used by the left to demean and discourage us, just another Fake News narrative shoved in our faces by those who hate America.

    But our enemy is so off guard, confused and drowning in helpless hysteria, they did not even raise the issue, period.

    This is Trump’s doing. It is not possible to love or respect this man more.

    A majority of Americans believe that the Tax Reform Bill that passed will not have any bearing whatsoever on their taxes. Tammy Bruce was on Charles Payne’s show yesterday. What she had to say was very insightful.

    Americans starting in February will realize that the MSM and Democrats lied to them about the Tax Bill. They will see proof of it every time they get paid by their employer. It will be reinforced every week or every two weeks!

    From the article linked above:

    Polling shows broad support for policies in GOP tax bill

    The House of Representatives voted Tuesday afternoon to pass sweeping tax reform legislation. If you pay attention to the mainstream media, you’d think that the vast majority of Americans hate the tax bill and the policies it contains.

    When you look at the actual policies, there is broad support.

    Most of the surveys, however, only ask people broad questions about the tax cuts: Do they support the plan overall? Do they think they’ll get a tax cut? Will they boost economic growth? Here’s what IBD says:

    What’s more, when people are asked about key provisions in the tax bill, support rises across the board.

    The IBD/TIPP poll is one of the few that has bothered to ask such questions. The results from the November survey:

    57% support lowering corporate rate from 35% to 20%.
    55% support reducing the number of tax brackets.
    83% support cutting the pass-through tax rate for small businesses to 25%.
    66% support doubling the standard deduction.
    Other polls produced similar findings. CNN found that 55% support increasing the standard deduction, 79% back the boost in the child tax credit, and a plurality support the mortgage deduction limit.

    Imagine that, the American people actually want a tax cut, if they actually get one. That is why the GOP is right to ignore the media narrative on polling and focus on delivering a tax cut for the vast majority of actual taxpayers. Come election time, the liberal media ruse will be shattered. And they know it.

    If the tax bill passes the Senate and becomes law, beginning in Feb. 2018, millions of Americans will see a higher take-home paycheck. That’s because withholding will be adjusted to reflect the tax cut they are getting. When that happens, those people, who have been lied to by the media, will start to see the tangible effects of this tax legislation.

    When that happens they will realize that they have, once again, been lied to by the media.

    Media reporting on the tax bill is just another in a long line of fake news published this year. Like the rest, in the end, the American people will see right through it!

      Yep, and the guy on Newsmax, Brett Winterble, who comes on at noon, pointed out earlier this week that the pollsters on the Tax Bill do not release their polling data. He said they could be polling anybody from any state, and he said that means the polls are meaningless and fake.

      Just remember the tax cut for personnel taxes will go away in 5 years. The Deep State made sure we the American public only get a limited tax relief. Plus I never heard any one in the Congress/Senate talk about reducing spend. Deep State at work! But thank God for Pres. Trump!

        The personal income tax cuts expiration is required to enable the tax reform bill to pass Swamp Central, uh US Senate, without requiring 60 votes. There has to be enough “goodies” for big corporations to ensure passage barely at 51 votes in the current swampy US Senate.

        The business tax cuts will work in synergy with the ongoing massive deregulation drive & trade deal reforms to boost US economic growth for many years to come. Economic success will give President Trump leverage to make Congress more friendly to his MAGA agenda, but this takes time with the biannual election cycles. A more MAGA friendly Congress can pass an improved tax reform law in the future with permanent substantial personal income tax rates cut.

        As for the federal deficit problem, President Trump has already shown his commitment to solve the problem even with substantial resistance from the swampy Congress. His cabinet are all busy reducing the size of the government as much as they can within their authority. A more MAGA friendly Congress will enable the return of real federal budgeting process and enable President Trump to truly reform the US health care system, which is a huge part of the federal deficit problem.

    I couldn’t believe NBC ran the whole announcement, then Les went for comments from Andrea & the other guy…they had a very difficult time coming up with a negative point of view….but they tried with a sneer in their voice. Also they couldn’t believe the positive comments the POTUS was given by McConnell. Ryan etc…

    Early on when he first gained national attention Chris Wallace of Fox News interviewed Trump. In the post interview dialogue someone asked Chris if he thought Trump had a chance. Chris said ‘ yes, I think he could win the whole thing’. What was it Chris saw in Trump? The same thing ALL of us who love this President saw: he is the quintessential American – one who believes in this country, who believe men and women of every color want to have a better life and ARE willing to work for it. The spirit of the American worker is rising from the ashes and will not be stopped. One man, one vision. Hollywood could never make a movie to match this Real Life American hero. And he is, a hero.

        Satan Soros and his ilk are powerless against the Will of GOD. It would do Soros and his ilk well to examine their deeds, repent, get straight with GOD, and ask HIM to save their immortal souls. Otherwise eternity will be Hell for them…

    It is so refreshing to hear the words of appreciation and praise of President Trump today. I am so tried of the media lies and bias. Let’s hear more acknowledgement of PDJT’s powerful, winning presidency from those who are supposed to be backing PDJT and less of the criticism and lies from the walking dead.

    Just listened to Orrin Hatch’s speech today.

    Got a little misty eyed in my office. I blame the dust. Like Senator Hatch we here, all of us, believe that by Making America Great Again we can not only Make Our Country and our people greater but that we can make the world greater. I’m not speaking of making the world greater monetarily, I am speaking of making the world greater leading by our, the wholly unique American way, and President Trump’s example.

    Senator Hatch stated something along the lines of making President Trump’s time as President the greatest Presidency in the history of our Nation. Big shoes to fill after George Washington and Ronald Reagan. However, please let me say President Trump after less than 1 year in office is off to a magnificent start. That if President Trump and by extension We, each and everyone of us from Katica to BakoCarl, Flep, Sundance, Diamond and Silk, James Woods, Mr and Mrs Baio and the millions of us across this nation, and all of us here at CTH and those at other sites who stand with us, all of us too numerous to name, is allowed to MAGA, if We the People stand strong, continue to stand with President Trump, as our President has said many, many times; “Together We Can Make America Great Again!”

      It was a wonderful effort by President Trump and his fabulous team working with Congress (Republican members, those magnificant bastards delivered, Democrats resisted) to pass tax cuts for individuals and businesses, open up some of Alaska for drilling, and removed the burden of Obamacare penalties. Hurrah!


  28. I’m not sure where the left can turn anymore.
    With Tim Scott talking about distressed communities and finally now getting the relief they need, this bill has put together a death blow to the Democrats.

    Trillions of dollars into communities that need it the most to raise themselves out of not just poverty but from the vicious cycle of drugs, gangs and hopelessness.
    Putting all Americans into the workforce is the key. And poor communities are no longer excluded.

    For over 50 years the Dems have claimed to have the backs of the poor. And for all the support these people gave they were left with nothing.
    Those people have awoken too. They see a better life out there and it’s not backing the Democrats.

    Bringing relief to single moms. Of which my own daughter is one, brings me great hope that for all her hard work and sacrifice she’ll get some help.
    Her and millions of others like her need just that small break to keep moving forward.

    This bill tackles so much more that tax relief. And how anyone on the left can attack it beyond comprehension.

    One other thing. To hear all of those Members of Congress thank and praise President Trump is something to behold. To give him the acknowledgement that without him in the office, it would have never happened. I wish they saw what they did today, 14 months ago. It’s hard to imagine what the country would look like with their full support.

    For him to turn repeatedly and thank them shows what a Class Act DJT really is.
    Some of these people were up until very recently fighting with him and talking bad about him.
    He turns today and thanks them and lets the country know they did their part.

    I’ve said this earlier. I hope now that with this sweet taste of victory they all make the effort to stand with him. To push harder to work and do the job they now see is possible with Trump as the President.
    To join him in MAGA!!

    I was on a conference call tonight for my job with 2 attorneys and 2 CPAs from California. Before the actual purpose of the call began, the 4 of them discussed how bad they thought this tax plan was. They named several deductions people would lose and a couple other things they viewed as really bad. But, their overall thought process was that if you live in CA, NY or NJ, you’re going to hate the plan, but other states like TX will love it. They acknowledged it was designed to favor middle class America and people in high tax states would never vote for Trump anyway so why worry about their opposition?

    It was interesting being a fly on a wall and hearing their perspectives. One of them even acknowledged opposition was complete opposition with none of them voting for it and that did not bode well for them. You can’t be totally opposed and vote in block like that and not expect people not to notice.

    From a professional standpoint, the accountants especially thought it was a really bad thing and believe most Americans will find that out to their disgust. The lawyers said it would have to be revisited to work on the things that are bad in it.

    I am not a numbers person. At all. Other than reading tidbits here, I am pretty clueless. These guys were not hysterical in their comments, they were just matter of fact with what they think is a very bad deal, so that, at least, was refreshing. I truly don’t know if they are right or if “our side” is right to be glad that SOMETHING is being done to cut taxes. I suspect as the chips begin to fall, we’ll all have a much better understanding of how all of this affects us personally in our finances for good or ill.

    Hearing their perspective, mostly given without malice, just professional assessment, was a different experience.

Most Americans, like 80+%, will pay less federal tax with the new tax reform law so why would they be disgusted ?

      Here’s a good tool that calculate the federal income tax for the current federal income tax rules and for the new federal tax reform law:

        They are all west coast liberals who make very large incomes compared to the rest of us rubes in flyover country. What else would you expect from them? Their understanding is darkened, their wisdom based on their own vaunted perceptions, their ideology corrupt and their arrogance at the forefront of everything they think. Res ipsa loquitur.
