Bush 41 recognized it for what it is, voodoo economics. It's unfortunate his sons, and most of the republicans, have fallen for it.

""There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they're going to take the money they're saving and reinvest it in American workers," Rubio, R-Fla., told The Economist in a story release Monday. "In fact they bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there's no evidence whatsoever that the money's been massively poured back into the American worker."


Have to agree with that statement.
I agree as well.

I always thought it was naive to believe they would "pass on the savings" to anyone other than their owners! Never - unless forced to.

Our president is not about "the little guy" and is only interested in benefiting (and promoting)) those like himself

Yep.
The income gap keeps widening... it's definitely not the top 1% who needs help and will, in turn, help the economy... The bottom rungs have less and less disposable income, wonder when that is going to backfire?

And they’re being cautious with their money....and the money of others that they’re charged with safeguarding.

Have you ever had the responsibility and pressure of using other people’s money? That could be their kids college fund...or their dream of home ownership. It’s not a responsibility to take lightly. Or maybe they want a pool. Or to leave it to their grandkids. Or burn it. Their intended use for the money isn’t even that relevant. It’s the point that it is someone’s else’s.

They are trying to get a better deal on the services (employees) and products they buy.....

You have no more right to tell them (the corporation) how to spend that money than someone has to preach to you how to spend yours.


I’d also really like to hear your answer to my scenario in one of my previous posts of you investing 100k into a partnership and the management deciding to spread it to the employees.

Rubio was just grandstanding. The corporate tax cut was not to coerce corporations into hiring or giving raises. It was to keep businesses from moving administrative and executive functions overseas, and encourage foreign firms to invest here. Its a long term thing.

Didnt see it, but then i would say good. Means they will get better talent and better environment. Happy people that get paid well, produce better work and quality work. Now if company cant profit on its own without investors, then that is a finance booking issue. Dont write checks you cant cash.

Agree it's a long-term but the short-term isn't as pretty as a painted Trump.
