AT&T handing out $200 million plus in bonuses because of GOP tax cut, Corporate tax rates cut to 21% from 35%,  Invest additional $1 billion in the US in 2018

AT&T handing out $200 million plus in bonuses because of GOP tax cut, Corporate tax rates cut to 21% from 35%,  Invest additional $1 billion in the US in 2018

“The truth is, raising the minimum wage could be just about the worst thing he could do for the jobs market. We are already 7 million jobs in the hole, 7 million fewer jobs than when the President took office. Raising the minimum wage means employers whose businesses are struggling will simply get rid of jobs. They will cut workers. According to the Heritage Foundation, the last minimum wage increase eliminated 300,000 jobs”…Gerri Willis Fox News February 13, 2013

“One of the CBO’s most intriguing estimates is that by 2017 there will be 2 million fewer full-time jobs on the market than there would have been without Obamacare, and that figure could climb to 2.5 million by 2024.”…Market Watch February 4, 2014

“Businesses do not pay for taxes and minimum wage hikes, employees and consumers do”…Citizen Wells

 

From Business Insider.

“AT&T is handing out more than $200 million in special bonuses because of the GOP tax cut”

“AT&T says it will pay a $1,000 bonus to more than 200,000 US employees after the GOP tax bill is enacted — an announcement sure to please Republican lawmakers who have been pitching corporate tax cuts as a boost for American workers.

The bill, which Congress passed this week, reduces the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35% while allowing a one-time repatriation of overseas cash. Companies are mostly expected to buy back stock or pay down debt with their savings.

Still, AT&T was quick to announce its plan after the House voted to pass the bill on Wednesday.

“Once tax reform is signed into law, AT&T plans to invest an additional $1 billion in the United States in 2018 and pay a special $1,000 bonus to more than 200,000 AT&T US employees — all union-represented, non-management and front-line managers,” the company said in a press release. “If the president signs the bill before Christmas, employees will receive the bonus over the holidays.”

At an event at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump called AT&T’s plan “pretty good.”

Last month, Stephenson blasted the Department of Justice over its plans to sue to block his company’s $84.5 billion takeover of Time Warner. At the time, Stephenson called the lawsuit “unprecedented” and said it “defies logic.”

Throughout his presidential campaign, Trump blasted the AT&T-Time Warner merger, saying, “Deals like this destroy democracy.” More recently, the president said he “always felt that was a deal that’s not good for the country.””

  1. “A tax increase to a company results in some combination of the following:
    Product and service price increases.
    Employee and hours cutbacks.
    Reduced hiring.”…Citizen Wells

  2. CW……………
    ……..if the underlying economic circumstances are profound enough it can also result in a company either closing, or moving to someplace else.
    The near term result of the corporate tax slash will probably result in an almost unparalleled economic upturn. The long term could be astronomic. Time to pick up some well researched stocks. A portfolio of 20 such stocks could lead to riches………..if you know when to SELL.

  3. Think about where we would be had Hilliary succeeded in defeating Trump.

    Scary thought, isn’t it?

  4. bob, yes indeed.

  5. “Ex-Navy pilot describes eerie encounter with UFO

    Former U.S. Navy pilot Cmdr. David Fravor described his eerie encounter with a UFO on Monday, saying it resembled a white Tic Tac and was clearly “not from the Earth.”

    “It was a real object, it exists and I saw it,” he told the Washington Post. “Something not from the Earth.”

    Fravor spotted the flying object on Nov. 14, 2004, after a break in a routine training mission about 60 to 100 miles off the coast between San Diego, California, and Ensenada, Mexico, the newspaper reported.”

  6. CW….
    ……………perhaps the Navy Pilot had ingested some of the world famous California FROOTS and KNUTS just before his flight…….har har.

  7. CW….
    ………..the pilot might be a RABID LIBERAL. The illness has become pervasive among the LIBERALS……….nearly all are now foaming at the mouth, RAVING, and RANTING incoherent and otherwise insane million word harangues from their soapbox stages in COURTHOUSE SQUARE of nearly every major city in both California, and New York state. This illness also causes the victim to have hallucinations, and see things which don’t exist.

  8. AND NOW……..
    ………..ONE of the known democratic LUNATICS Jerrold Nadler of New York has taken over the spot which Conyers held. Today as he FOAMED AT THE MOUTH he raved that the DEMOCRATS are now prepared to go forward with their IMPEACHMENT ATTEMPT of President Trump. It will fail, and soon thereafter all will be sitting in padded cells as each awaits his trial for TREASON for his part in the attempt to illegally overthrow a sitting POTUS who was LEGALLY elected. They will ALL be convicted, and end up in prison for a very long time.

  9. “What Americans Spent The Most Money On In The Third Quarter”

    “And yet, most other line items also saw a downward revision, which means that something had to increase sharply to compensate for the downward revisions among other spending components. Sure enough, something did: the old faithful “plug” which has saved the US economy every quarter for the past 4 years: Healthcare, or as it is better known, Obamacare, because with Trump failing to repeal Obama’s signature health law, and even the recent Tax Cut putting Obamacare in limbo it means that Healthcare will merrily “contribute to GDP” for years to come, by being the single biggest marginal spending item for the foreseeable future.

    To wit: from an initial marginal contribution to Q3 GDP growth of only $7.6 billion in the first estimate, the final revision has “healthcare” providing an incremental $22.1 billion in economic growth, reaching a new all time high of $2.016.8 trillion in chained-dollars. Of note: the GDP contribution from Healthcare, at $2.017 trillion is about to surpass the historically biggest contributor to US GDP growth, housing, which was “only” $2.046 trillion chained dollars in the third quarter. At the current rate of convergence, healthcare will housing it in 2-3 quarters.”

    BOMBSHELL Report: Democrats’ Direct Ties To Terrorist Money Laundering Exposed… This Is Really Bad

    A bombshell report exposing the dirty dealings of the Muslim IT aides has just been released, and everything about it points to the men being involved in a money laundering scheme for international terrorism.

    Imran Awan and basically his entire family were employed by Congressional Democrats, including Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, for years before finally being fired over the summer, but only after they were arrested by the FBI attempting to flee the country with large amounts of cash on them. Awan was apprehended at the airport amid reports that he and his family were responsible for massive data breeches in Congress, then arrested on wire fraud charges, and now we’re learning the extent of the crimes he’s committed.

    It’s bad…really bad.

  12. BREAKING NEWS From JEFF SESSIONS… It’s FINALLY HAPPENING!

    “Critics of Hillary Clinton have long suspected dirty dealings behind the scenes of the infamous Uranium One deal, which saw the Obama administration sell 20 percent of America’s uranium mining rights to Russia, and it looks like they’re finally going to get the answers they’ve sought.

    According to a bombshell report from NBC News, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered the career prosecutors at the Justice Department to take another look at the original investigation into the deal. The report states that Justice Department officials have been interviewing the FBI agents who conducted the criminal probe into the matter to see if there’s a need for a special counsel.”

  13. AND NOW……….
    …………..apparently the UN (USELESS NITWITS) think they are running America. They voted in DEFIANCE of president Trump’s order to move US Embassy to Jerusalem. We will move it whether the UN likes it or not. If the UN gets mad and moves out of America, I can only say…….HURRY!
    The UN is even more USELESS than was the League of Nations.

  14. I cried when I scrolled down and saw what president Trump was doing. God Bless Him…

  15. AND TONIGHT……….
    ……..we are learning that in California even TREES ARE NOW RACIST……..
    so says a snotnosed California moron. The Trees being accused were planted long before the snotnose was born. They border a property line between a residential area, and a golf course. I am sure that if this CHILD has his way all trees in California will be cut down ,and removed. A tree limb must have fallen and struck his pointed head. I have read that the snotnose with the pointed head is a DRIVING INSTRUCTER.

  16. fhl…………..
    ……………..the cartoon pretty much says it like I have it figured out……..I am betting there are a LOT more people in America who have also figured it the same way. NOT HARD TO SEE THROUGH!

  17. FISA JUDGE……….
    ………………needs to be subpoenaed,and put under oath. People who use the 5th amendment are 9 times out of 10 guilty. Remaining time are people who HELPED PERPETRATE THE CRIME. Manure travels the fastest down a steep chute!

  18. Judge orders Alabama must Recount !!!! Military votes counted, race within half a percent. Secretary of State says, not gonna happen !!!! https://www.thetrumptimes.com/2017/12/17/judge-orders-recount-alabama-senate-race/

  19. AND NOW………..
    …………….it is clear that Mueller is attempting to circumvent 4th amendment in search of private banking ledgers belonging to Kushner. There MUST BE A WARRANT SIGNED BY A FEDERAL JUDGE, otherwise Mr. Mueller is himself committing a crime. He has no legal authority to invade private banking records without a WARRANT SIGNED BY A JUDGE. There must be a reasonable foundation of wrongdoing shown to a judge to obtain a warrant. Hearsay cannot be used as a foundation. Illegal search is in violation of 4th Amendment.

  20. AND………….
    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone here at CW.

  21. AND TONIGHT……….
    ………… the Pochahontas recipe for POW WOW CHOW has been debunked as more European than Cherokee cooking. This is easy to see through to begin with. The Cherokee tribe depended largely upon NATURAL FOOD sources. They really did not have European cooking skills. Their dinner was more often than not a fresh killed rabbit, or deer, or other animals. I am sure that they more than likely had greens as well. ……….but to prepare POW WOW CHOW, given the ingredients, is highly unlikely……….in fact probably little more than a load of POCHAHONTAS manure.

  23. AND ONCE AGAIN………
    ………….the rabid liberal appeals court has ruled that President Trump has exceeded his authority with the TRAVEL BAN. It looks as though it is AGAIN going to be in front of the SCOTUS. The liberal lunatics can’t seem to get it through their tiny brains that the SCOTUS has ALREADY RULED ON THIS. This time it is Hawaii doing the complaining……….might as well be California…….just as FROOTY. Today Hawaii is occupied by Japanese, and their descendants………about 60%. That is why there was a person with the surname of FUKINO employed by the HDOH. Many of these people are ILLEGALS in Hawaii. They invaded when they learned that Hawaii was going to become a state. Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz FUKI- FUKI was no exception.

  24. AND THE IMPEACH VOTE……….
    ………….consisted only of the votes of those who were making the illegal charges against President Trump………they are walking on extremely thin ice,……..because the vote FAILED all could find themselves being charged with conspiracy to overthrow a duly elected government………and they all could end up spending the rest of their meaningless lives in prison where they can rave and foam at the mouth all they want.

  25. IN TRUTH………..
    …………….STINKY DINKY, is not a US citizen. All of the facts point to this. Even though he was a POTUS he can still be DEPORTED back to Kenya. There is no way he could have become a US citizen except via naturalization. Had he been naturalized he would not have been able to legally run for POTUS. But because he was NOT who he said he was he was NOT ELIGIBLE. There is plenty of existing evidence which says he is STILL NOT A US CITIZEN, and could be legally deported. I pray that this will happen.

  26. WHENEVER I SEE………..
    ……..a young college grad eating up one plateful of liberal bullshi$ after another, it sickens me. Many of our young people have become so mentally twisted they can no longer distinguish UP from DOWN. America is still in deep doodoo.. Until the super rich who are pulling the strings are arrested, and dealt with America will likely continue to sink into the morass. If America is to survive all Americans MUST forego their irrational life styles and return to the principles of yesteryear.

  27. AND TODAY…………..
    …………..Newsmax tells us that Russia is preparing a SECRET attack on our Transatlantic communications cable. First of all NEWSMAX must think that all Americans are complete imbeciles. IF IT IS A SECRET ATTACK WE WOULDN’T KNOW ABOUT IT UNTIL AFTER THE FACT………BUT YES such an attack could be disruptive to a PORTION of our communications with Europe etc., BUT IT WOULDN’T NECESSARILY IMPEDE OUR ABILITY TO SURVIVE. IN ADDITION SUCH AN ATTACK WOULD ALSO REVEAL THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE SUBMARINE WHICH CARRIED OUT THE ATTACK, AND IT WOULD BE HISTORY IN PRETTY SHORT ORDER. THE TINY PIECES OF THE SUB WILL END UP ON THE BOTTOM OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN ALONG WITH IT’S ENTIRE CREW. THERE IS THOUSANDS OF LISTENING DEVICES WHICH PROTECT INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE SUB MARINE CABLES. THESE ARE SPECIALLY DEVELOPED LISTENING DEVICES THAT ARE CAPABLE OF HEARING A FISH FART THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY, AND THEY ARE ALSO CAPABLE OF PINPOINTING THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE FISH THAT FARTED. ANY COUNTRY WHO WOULD BE STUPID ENOUGH TO ATTEMPT SUCH AN ATTACK WOULD QUICKLY LEARN THE HARD WAY THAT THE ATTACK WAS SHEER FOLLY.

  28. And….
    Merry Christmas from the White House.

  29. hapnHal…………

    Wife Of Fusion GPS Founder Admits Her Husband Was Behind Fake “RussiaGate”

    Story Authored by Alex Christoforou via The Duran,

    The Russiagate story concocted by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, who coincidently funded Fusion GPS (the firm behind the ‘Trump dossier’ that the entire Russia election meddling is based upon), is unraveling at record speed. Mary Jacoby, the wife of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, who is the man in the middle of the entire Russiagate scandal, boasted on Facebook about how ‘Russiagate,’ would not exist if it weren’t for her husband.

  37. I would like Wish Everybody here at CW’s.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!

  38. hapnHal……….
    …………..I read the whole story at Zero Hedge. If true, and is accurate the heads should begin rolling soon. Right now I am sort of ………TONGUE IN CHEEK. It all sounds too much like something out of a nightmare. I will of course be praying that it is all TRUE ,AND ACCURATE. There was even a little humor along with the story. There was a poster who called himself “Willygroper”, ……….CRACKED ME UP BIG TIME! HAR HAR

  39. Trudy………..
    ………..whenever you arrive at CW’S PLACE, it is sort of like entering a neighborhood gin mill. The crowd is small, and everybody knows each other. There was once a TV show which used such a setting. It was around for a lot of seasons. Had a real cool chick as well………unfortunately she moved on to bigger and better things. I believe that one of the actors was Ted Danson

  40. This made my skin boil…. How in the world does the Pentagon and the DOD get by with not being audit? Over 20 trillion missing and maybe more. This happened between 1998 to 2015. That means it happened under George W. Bush and the Kenyan Barry Soetoro Grrrrrrrr

    http://pdt2020orbust.com/20-trillion-dollar-secret/

  41. Shelia Jackson Lee used her name to take this ladies seat. Come to find out the privileged witch has done it several times. Listen to the people on the ladies FB page responding about Shelia Jackson Lee..

  42. Ginger, It takes all kinds.

  43. Merry Christmas fellow birthers, and deplorable Citizens!

  44. Ginger……….
    …………the black female, overweight, foul mouthed, tub of lard who thinks she is SOOOOOOOOOO IMPORRRRRRRRRTANT, probably will be voted out next time around. It is manure like her who are the real cause of much of the conflict between black and white. She is a MORON, and a carbon copy of her California associate. Rightfully she should be in a geri chair at a booby hatch. REAL POS.

  45. The lady whose seat was given to an elected member of the house can now legally bill the US Government for her losses………in addition she can be specific and name the member of the house who STOLE HER airline seat.

  46. Trudy………
    ………….the lard a$$ed, odorous, loud mouthed black POS will probably live to have one of her attempts to play the race card BACKFIRE ON HER…..BIG TIME, because she tried to steal the seat of somebody a hell of a lot more important than her, and she will end up getting stepped on like a bug in return.

  47. Bob Strauss………..
    …………..Tennessee Ernie does a great job on singing Christian Soldiers. This was once the theme song of the US Salvation Army………and their cheerful BELL CLANGERS are out this year as well. I always drop my pocket change in their kettles. Despite the black eye they received a number of years ago because of a couple of people within, they do a lot of good things. The SPOILED EGGS were soon discarded after being found.

  48. Bob Strauss………
    ………….have a great Christmas.

  49. Things are a changing…AMEN
