Here Are the American Companies Showering Employees With Bonuses After Trump Tax Cut

Hundreds of great American companies are now showering their employees with bonuses, higher wages, additional 401k contributions, and new investments in employee training. All this after President Trump’s new tax bill was signed into law.

Remember how those liberal moonbats, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) were pounding the drum about how this tax bill was nothing more than a huge tax break strictly for billionaires? Nancy Pelosi even called the tax bill “the apocalypse” and said people would die because of this bill. It all sounds so silly now. Indeed, this tax bill was a windfall for working Americans at every level.

There are additional benefits to the tax bill, beyond helping employees. For example, many utility companies, like the Potomac Electric Power Company, which supplies electric power to almost a million customers in Maryland, has announced plans to cut electric rates to customers.

Before the tax bill was passed, the United States had the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Reducing the rate not only helped American competitiveness, employee salaries and job retention, but it has caused the stock market to soar to record levels. This helps workers’ 401k and 403b retirement accounts, and ensures the solvency of American pensions.

All these great benefits came because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – without support from a single Democrat in the House or Senate. Democrats should be ashamed of themselves, but instead, they now continue to focus on President Trump’s tweets and “offensive words”.

Listed below is a very impressive list of American companies that are sharing their tax cut with employees and customers. This list is enormous, and it grows every day, so by no means is it complete. Most of this list came from the website Americans For Tax Reform.

Oh, and for what it’s worth, every writer at Red Nation Now (the site you are reading) also got bonuses after the tax bill was passed!

Congratulations to all those working Americans who got a big bonus this year. And thank you, President Trump!
