It’s crumbs, admit it. The top 1% is getting BILLIONS, while the working class gets a couple dollars. Gas prices has increased, food prices have increase, so what exactly are you getting
LOL don't pretend that this is for the masses. The people who regularly receive massive bonuses that would actually make a difference come tax day are those already making 6-figure and up salaries.
Every bonus should be tax free anyway, I don’t remember the government being at my job all year when I get my safety bonus, but yet they take close to half.

Trump’s Big Buyback BamboozleTHURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2018Trump’s promise that corporations will use his giant new tax cut to make new investments and raise workers’ wages is proving to be about as truthful as his promise to release his tax returns.
The results are coming in, and guess what? Almost all the extra money is going into stock buybacks. Since the tax cut became law, buy-backs have surged to $88.6 billion. That’s more than double the amount of buybacks in the same period last year, according to data provided by Birinyi Associates.
Compare this to the paltry $2.5 billion of employee bonuses corporations say they’ll dispense in response to the tax law, and you see the bonuses for what they are – a small fig leaf to disguise the big buybacks.
Sure $1000 is a decent little bonus for a low wage worker. Though it is a bonus and not the normal wage. Next year I bet no one will receive the bonus. On top of that bonuses are normally taxed at a higher rate.
The issue is why did lying Donnie and the Republicans give them selves along with millionaires billionaires hedge fund managers huge Permanent tax breaks? What The Republicans don’t tell you is a lot of these bonus you have to have at least 20 years and be a full-time employee. Many of these corporations are raising their prices on their products #Tax scam
We won't see the crash-fomenting idiocy of the Trump economic impact until 3Q:18. The imbecile-in-chief is coasting on Obama's judicious impact. Nothing funnier and more obvious than Douchebag taking credit for the economy Obama rescued & created while taking aggressive measures to bring about a sequel to the 2008 crash. Even his base knows he's full of it. Republicanism and its concurrent delusions are the chief problem. Actually, insanely stupid Republican voters have aided and abetted the GOP in dismantling the New Deal social democracy in favor of economic and political tyranny finally achieved. We are living in a society postulated by debunked economists F.A. Hayek and J.M. Buchanan, a Fred Koch and Prescott Bush operation insinuating itself into government since 1947. The prevailing oligarchy of billionaires loves a populace desperate, impoverished, dependent on crumbs from the table, sick and disenfranchised. Cheap labor buying cheaper goods of lesser quality and value for larger amounts. A society of serfs and of imprisoned slave labor. Certainly this is theorized in J.M. Buchanan's "Fiscal Theory and Political Economy"" - Suppression of the majority by an economically privileged minority." The oligarchy doesn't want fascism as much as it wants a state of industrialized neo-feudalism, and fascism is the means of getting there in the modern world, and we are nearly there as of now. Enjoy your fictitious tax cuts. LOL

Only 2% of people got raises or bonuses. And tax cuts -- guess what? -- they don't pay for themselves. Republicans, with a speed even I find astonishing, now want to cut "entitlements" because of ballooning deficits caused by their tax cuts. So they will propose cuts to Medicare and Social Security. Same playbook Republicans always use.
I ahvent recieved anywhere even close to 1k. Igot a 52 dollar a month raise thru the def gov, i promise i will not spend it all in 1 place.
I used to be a staunch Republican.I met Reagan before he passed away. Trump is destroying the Republican Party all by himself...tho the astro-turf tea-party fauxpublicans, the alt-right, and Russians helped him. I’m voting blue in the midterms.
