Tax Cut Fallout and Tweets du Jour

I hope at least a handful of Gaypatriot readers, commenters, and lurkers survived “Tax Cut Armageddon.” The carnage has not been too bad in central Ohio, but I understand the casualties in California and New York will be in the tens of millions.

To add to the carnage, Evil Corporations(TM) like Comcast, Wells-Fargo, and AT&T are using the dreadful Republican tax cuts… to pay their employees more money. Can you believe it? Leftists are dismissing this as a PR stunt. They never dismiss a company announcement of a pro-LGBT policy (which costs companies nothing) as a PR stunt.

But I guess those $1,000 bonuses amount to less than half of the $2,500 people have saved because of Obamacare… oh, wait… Obamacare actually made health care even more expensive. My bad.

Never-Trumper Bill “Thurston Howell IV” Kristol says that for corporations to be handing out raises and bonuses in the wake of tax cut passage is “creepy.”  His dream of instituting a blood aristocracy is deferred once again.

Anyway, the Democrats have now latched onto the talking point that the tax cuts for most people “won’t amount to much.” And, indeed, to the bottom two income quintiles who already pay nothing in income taxes, they naturally won’t be getting to keep as much of their own money as giant corporations who have billions annually confiscated. The difference being, large corporations are in a much better position to add employees and build factories than people in the bottom two income quintiles.  Not to mention, the “won’t amount to much” talking point just shows how out of touch the Democrats are with people who could use an extra $100 a month or so.

By sheer coincidence, the Washington Post’s editorial opinion on the Tax Reform Plan aligns to Democrat Party talking points with the precision of a Swiss Watch.

And then there’s this idiot Boston Globe columnist thinks people should happily surrender more money to the Government, because the Government will use it more “efficiently.” 

That governments spend money more efficiently than you do is literally the reason we have governments

Wasn’t Boston where they had that ‘Big Dig’ thingie that cost four times as much as initially budgeted and was finished ten years behind schedule? Is that his idea of Government “efficiency?” Was it “efficient” when the Government spent $800,000 to study how African men wash their pee-pees, or $400,000 to study Argentinian gay bars? $22 Million so that Harry Reid’s billionaire buddy can study UFOs?

And finally there’s this from a parody account, but I think sums up the feelings of the Democrat base.

Someone please explain how Trump’s stupid tax cut bill helps people like me that don’t want a job.
