Liberals’ heads explode.
You can find plenty of people on this site who trashed the tax cuts because there was no ‘trickledown’ and corporations would pocket the savings. I’ll be looking to see what the SALT haters have to say when they actually file their taxes, too.
Pity those folks. They must be getting tired of all the winning Trump has foisted on them.
Now it’ll be even cheaper to melt snowflakes.
Certainly isn’t Duke Power rolling back rates— they continue to push Smart Meters forced installation, and rate hikes to cover wind power subsidized windmills in the Outer Banks NC. Being the monopoly they are, perhaps this will break them up. Heard in passing a comment about the remaining coal fired plants/operators needing help to overcome all the crapola obamaumao foisted on them, as well as the US coal operators- thinking because the US is still importing coal as it exports coal (a very odd situation).
Meanwhile- Southern Co. in GA got approval for 2 new nuclear plants at Plant Vogtle. And Duke? pushing natural gas, all the way down to florida and requiring a currently under construction new gas pipeline through florida (with eminent domain easement, the works).
Just think of the ‘windfall’ if We the People had been given such as given to biz.
Hell, I’d even take “If the (R)N(C) had actually delivered on their platform and promises: SMALLER GOVT”. But, when you have a Uniparty ‘debating’ on *PAYING for tax cuts*....
