Today was an incredibly important day not only of the Trump administration, but for Americans as a whole.
Despite significant opposition, (what’s new?), the Trump administration and a heavily divided congress worked together to pass a massive piece of tax legislation that would reform much of the way that our nation handles our federal funding.
Of course, this all occurred without any democratic support, because, well, The Resistance.
Still, we are now looking at a new way of doing business in D.C. that even CNN was forced to admit will be a major boon for the American working class.
Now, the trickle up economics of this bill are being heralded by a number of the nation’s most prevalent manufacturers, including aerospace innovator Boeing, who revealed that the changes to the tax code will free up nearly $300 million that can be spent on charity and on their employees.
“The Boeing Company, America’s largest aerospace firm, tweeted Wednesday that the just passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will allow them to spend $300 million on ’employee-related and charitable investment.’
“’On behalf of all of our stakeholders, we applaud and thank Congress and the administration for their leadership in seizing this opportunity to unleash economic energy in the United States,’ Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said in a press release. ‘It’s the single-most important thing we can do to drive innovation, support quality jobs and accelerate capital investment in our country.’”
“’For Boeing, the reforms enable us to better compete on the world stage and give us a stronger foundation for the investment in innovation, facilities and skills that will support our long-term growth,’ Muilenburg continued.”
Once again, the Trump agenda has succeeded, and once again it has done so without so much an one iota of assistance from the obstruction-obsessed democratic party.
As we continue to unravel the intricacies of this tax bill in earnest, the realities of its impact on American families will become much more apparent both individually and in the realm of business. When large corporations such as Boeing readily and immediately agree that a windfall to their employees is inevitable, we have no choice but to be optimistic about what the finer details will allow to blossom as well.
Or, if you’re a democrat, you can just sit in the corner and pout. As per the usual.
