Goldman Sachs sees tax reform pushed to next year as GOP health bill creates setbacks
Why is nobody else peeing on the feet and the heads of all those who dared to step to the microphone and talk about how Donald Trump and his billionaire asshole friends were going to shit a golden future for normal Americans and it was gonna be quick??
He was going to pull down his trousers and shit a giant golden egg!!!
And we were going to cry and throw roses and admire this giant fucking golden egg that just came out the Donald’s ass!!
Thus far all I see is a giant turd.
Headline from CNBC:
Outrage over $400 million tax break for health insurance executives under GOP Obamacare replacement plan
Greasing palms, fellating CEOs, pretending to be doing something for ordinary folks!
Keeping Americans safe, healthy, and happy is not a priority of RyanCare/TrumpCare or of the spying complex charged with repelling our enemies.
They’re both businesses to be run and structured as such.
Less than 100 Americans a year die from terrorism. RyanCare/TrumpCare will kill many times that.

Facebook Donates Some $100,000 To CPAC, Reminding Users Again That It’s Not Liberal
It’s simple minded to think that corporations will choose sides in American politics. It may happen once in a while, but most companies are giving money to preserve their business model, whether that’s their reputation or their view on what taxes should be.
So Facebook goes the Goldman Sachs route because it has the money to do so — give money to both parties to look even handed as they’ve been accused of being anti-conservative, which is not good for a business such as Facebook.
But these CPAC pricks are the worst of the worst.
“Our involvement is not an endorsement of any particular position or platform,” the spokesperson said.
Until they need a favor or a change to a position or a platform. That’s how you win, ply both sides with money and call in your favors when you need them.
Headline from CNBC:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ‘reconsidering’ lawsuits to force property sales in Hawaii
Keep tossing the shit in his direction until he tosses these colonialist lawsuits.
Drivers who worked for ride-hailing service Uber [UBER.UL] in California and Massachusetts over the past seven years would have been entitled to an estimated $730 million in expense reimbursements had they been employees rather than contractors, according to court documents made public on Monday.
I wonder if the sharing economy is creating Trump voters?
My guess is yes.
