    You're pathetic.

    They finally got their Arctic Wildlife Refuge drilling passed. Lisa Murkowski supports it.

    So, there's another Republican off the list of potential saviors.

    Kurt Eichenwald:

    Under new tax bill, an American company's operations in Ireland taxes will fall from 37% (with 25% paid to USA) down to 12.5%. All of that tax goes to Ireland. If they stay in US, they pay 20%.

    Moving to Ireland directly adds 7.5% to their profits. Make Ireland Great Again.

    Re: Business, Economics & Tax Policy 6.0: Nope, it only found woven strands

    The most dangerous aspect of this tax bill was explained to me by my dad.

    Generally, we see recessions on average once every six years. We havenít seen one since 2008-2009. One of the ways we generally shortstop a recession is by cutting taxes. Then you raise them after the recession back to normal levels. If we cut taxes to the extent weíre doing now, we donít have that as an option if and when a recession hits. There just isnít enough left to cut in any meaningful way without crippling the budget.

    We could be in very dire straits if we have a recession in the next few years. And weíre already overdue.

    I told a friend more knowledgeable about the markets than I, that we'd soon have a recession, or at least DJIA/NASDAQ/S&P corrections, 3 years ago; he agreed, but we still haven't.

    If you thought 2008 was bad, this next crash is going to be massive - probably Black Tuesday 1929 level. Hold your ballcaps and beanies, everyone.

    Correct. Another reason this tax cut is insane.

    Hark, hark, what is that we hear as the new GOP frolics merrily through the halls of Congress? Why, 'tis the tinkle of Jacob Marley's chains. And what of the other clanking? The new chains will bear weight in years to come, whispers the dark shadow just over there.

    The people who would really need relief in a recession/depression would not need any new taxes. And the people who are rarely harmed by a depression/recession can be taxed quite a bit- they are getting more than enough relief to raise the taxes on them- including the capitol gains taxes being treated like normal income. One would harm the stock market numbers, but since they don't actually reflect the economy, and they will go down, it's not that big of a deal.

    One thing to note- if this does result in a recession, on a federal level, it will be 3 for 3- "trickle down economics" cause recessions. Sadly, the morons who claim they are fiscally conservative are to dumb to understand that.

    One other note- it's funny that R's are talking about entitlements being cut for social security and medicade, when they just gave a trillion dollar entitlement to the rich and corporations.

    And for all of the D bashing of deficit spending vs. complaining about what R's are doing.... what President Obama did was a temporary spending program to put money directly in the hands of consumers so that they can keep the economy going- important words being temporary and direct. This tax bill is largely permanent deficit spending and it's incredibly indirect to the majority of consumers. Not even remotely the same concern.

    Yet, they won the argument. They won the House. They won the Senate. They own the Supreme Court. Never forget that. No matter how wrong they are, they win.

    Iím interested to see how the foreign earnings piece shakes out. For strategic reasons it would be nice if we moved production back here. The rate stuff is a bunch of garbage.
