    Zero Hedge: Trump Tax Cuts a "Scam".
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-10/tax-cut-scam

    My taxes will go down. My company gave every hourly employee a raise.

    Doesn't feel terribly scammy so far...

    I feel like everyone benefits from lower taxes except the government and people dependent upon the government.

    Still, there are some good points in the article.

    I agree with you, I'm principally for less taxes all around because it directly gives the federal government less power. It's hard to have a police state with out money to give it power. The top 1% already pay way too many taxes imo. As long as the burden of their payments stopping doesn't shift to the middle class, I'm ok.

    I honestly haven't been keeping up with this, though I have seen headlines for it. My question is: If it's largely a symbolic gesture, then what Muslims are going to what, get "even more angrier"? As though, the collective bunch of sheep fuckers is going to suddenly cry out in betrayal from a beloved US president? Meh.

    If WAPO thinks its a bad thing, then I'm guessing its probably a non-issue.

    I don't watch TV so maybe I'm late realizing this, but apparently MSM is trying to make this appear to be a fringe far-right issue. Until Trump it wasn't... it was 100% bipartisan... now the left is openly supporting the Muslims who vote for anti-semites. Since the sexual assault allegations thing got hot, they've also made due process and innocent until proven guilty right-leaning issues. Before that they made free speech a right-leaning issue. WTF is left for them to stand on? Taxing rich people is about it, and they went Hillary over Bernie.

    The Dow's 31% gain during Trump's first year is the best since FDR

    -The 30-stock index has surged more than 31 percent since Trump's inauguration.
    -That marks the index's best performance during the first year of a president since Franklin Roosevelt.
    -"You've got lower taxes, less regulation and confidence in the economy is high," said one investor.
    -The S&P 500 has surged 23 percent during Trump's first year in office

    I really just wonder how you all can be okay with him funneling taxpayer money into his companies every time he golfs or stays in a hotel. It's pretty textbook corruption. I don't think anything he has done is justification for this and presume he has an ulterior motive for anything potentially "good" he does.

    Because he can't fart without saving more money than he spends.

    Remember when the media was ripping him for not commiting to defend other countries, and threatening the very existence of NATO? This was a campaign promise. None of those countries were agreeing to pay their share of the defense budget, and then they simply DID NOT PAY THE BILL when the time came and we picked up most of the small tab they'd agreed to pay. Trump did what the three previous had failed to do and got zero credit for it.

    Let me know when his hotel bills reach twelve billion and I'll give you another link.

    I don't care HOW much he is stealing. I care that he is stealing and he's doing it right in front of everyone's faces, but somehow his little cult just doesn't care. He simply can do no wrong, even when he blatantly does wrong. It's really disturbing and i'll be pretty happy when he is finally in prison. I doubt that will happen before his term ends, though, which is very unfortunate for the entire country.

    I think you're projecting here. Trump supporters know he was a shady, ruthless play-to-win business guy and they're okay with that. This is only an issue if you're pretending the left is somehow devoid of corruption.

    No, it's not. He's a corrupt thief and a con-man, and he's got you fooled. I'm surprised how popular worship of the orange god is here. It's as if you can't figure out that he's doing everything shady politicians do as it is, and knocking it up a notch and funneling tax payer money directly into his pockets. But since all politicians are dirty, this is okay. Great logic. Basically, you only have a problem with politicians you didn't vote for. What's okay and what isn't depends on what side of the aisle they're on, not what they are actually doing. Embarrassing.
