How's your 401k doing?
How's your taxes?
Are you busy at work?
My 401k has been booming since about 2010

My wages doubled between 2007-2016

We are much slower at work now. I live in a farm economy based area. Farmers are hurting bad due to the tariffs and resulting low crop prices. Its affecting all businesses that support them.

I guess these knotheads forgot that President Trump only agreed to that bloated budget to get the defence spending he promised to the military. The dems inflated their social-justice garbage to match the defence spending increase or they'd vote no so he made a tough decision. He also said he wouldn't be doing that again.
Tax cuts are the main contributor to the booming debt right now. It will only get worse unless something is done.

Ok, then you have the right to pay MORE taxes than you do..put your money where your mouth is

There is no law against voluntarily paying more

The massive corporate tax cuts are part of the issue. Not the few crumbs trump gave to the average American.

you have no idea what your talking about..none. when trump reduced taxes on corps, those mean nasty thieving corps reinvested it back into the company and its workers. offshore money came flowing back like it should have. being pro business is a good thing, not like you think.

contrary to popular left wing opinion, business makes the world go around, they provide jobs and a good lifestyle. when you attack business like obama and the left, they leave for more favorable place, and countries. if you tax them into failure, there is no incentive to even start a business

Well, he always tells the truth, so nothing to worry about.

Am I the only one sick and tired of the left trash talking businesses all the time?

Like as if it would be paradise if those big nasty mean corps wouldn't be so successful , and just a tiny profit...just enough to squeak by each month. TAX the crap out of them, let beurocracy get after them day after day, more environmental regs...hammer them hard.

After all, they didn't build that 🙄

F'n sickening...it's nothing but pure jeliousy

M McDonnell admitted that changes to programs like Medicare and Social Security might be “impossible to achieve” as long as Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the White House. It was a quietly refreshing moment, in which McConnell effectively dropped the entire charade that Republicans are a party that prioritizes fiscal prudence—making explicit what has long been obvious to anyone who has paid the faintest bit of attention to Washington over the past decades.

You being a jealous failure who could never start or run a successful business is fine with me. There always had to be those people who do the dirty work

You nailed it right there. Clock-punchers always cry about "the man" yet never have the courage to actually be the man. Any soggy-spine can sit around and complain because it's easy and risk-free but the man with the courage and drive to build something of value needs his floors swept after the intellects have gone home too so it all works out :D
