REPUBLICAN TAX LEGISLATION FALLOUT

How is the tax legislation, supported by President Trump and voted in favor of by only Republicans – not one single Democrat on board – doing so far?

Here’s an indication, via these excerpts from Vince Golle’s article at bloomberg.com – which no one will ever confuse with a pro-Trump venue:

Optimism among small companies in the U.S. rose more than forecast in January, fueled by a record number of owners who said now was a good time to expand, according to a National Federation of Independent Business survey released Tuesday.

Six of the 10 components that make up the small-business optimism index increased in January, producing one of the strongest readings in the 45-year history of the survey. The figures show sustained, sturdy business sentiment since the November 2016 election. 

The new tax law “produced the most recent boost to small-business optimism,” NFIB’s William Dunkelberg and Holly Wade said in a report. 

 

Let me finish with a question for the Democrats who voted 100% against this tax legislation, and for the media which have been so insistent on downplaying its likely positive affects:   come November, which do you think voters will be paying more attention to?  Rob Porter’s marital issues or more jobs and higher pay?

I’m sorry if that question is too troubling for you …
