even if the tax law does help it wouldn't be seen till months or even a year from now.
and the downside will be seen after midterms.
I guess AZRWinger explained it to you even though he wasn't replying to us. Thanks AZRWinger.

Shall we now move onto the conspiracy that ATT&T only did this as a bribe to secure their purchase of Time Warner?

this may be a favor to make trump look better. but it does not improve the economy in the way the tax bill was touted. same guys, same companies, same employees. boss es got billions of dollars . toss some bucks to employees. just like bush giving money to some tax payers, it does nothing to the overall economy. will help xmas sales local to those employees maybe or college funds. that's good but the over all plan costs money for everyone else. and if it keeps up will cost those companies taking the tax break as less people can afford their services and goods.

Might I suggest that you purchase stock in the companies that will benefit from the tax cuts. That will give you a twofold win. You'll get individual lower taxes and reap the benefits of lower corporate taxes.
Bonus, if you don't want your tax reduction you can send the funds to the U.S. Government, they will gladly accept it.
Or, if you think the government knows best how to spend your income, you can send all your money to the government to do as they see fit.

By sending her ill gotten gain to the gubmit, she would also prove her point that the profits derived under the new tax laws would be used for evil.

no thanks. I sold the last stocks I will ever own before the Bush recession. Just lucky really, no precognition. But it's a big boy game now.
for the general middle class that wouldn't help either. there comes a time when you run out of people to buy all the goods or services.
our economy must get back to consumer based.

It already has. You missed it big time.

BTW, An economy based on consumerism is a capitalistic economy. By what metric do you measure?

A reasonably free market eliminates companies producing goods or services nobody wants to buy , replacing them with goods and services in demand. Take for example the iPhone, it opened a huge demand for smart phones displacing ordinary cell phones in the process. There were no stimulus payments or tax breaks involved.

When government gets involved in trying to induce demand we get things like subsidies and tax breaks for $100K cars like the Tesla. The middle class gets to pay the bill.

You should have put it right back in after the market tanked. You would be flush with money right now. I waited until Trump was elected, and the money is growing like crazy.

Wouldn't you think that at least a few high tax libs would do this in order to put their money where their mouth is?

But NOOOOOOOOOOO. Only people that make MORE than they do should pay more taxes.

Sounds like you made a lucky move before the crash and a huge mistake afterwards to not reinvest at market low.
