Sending out bonus checks of a billion dollars in December instead of January adds 110 million to the national debt.
Do you have a link where they announced they were going to give these in Jan?

Here's my question. Does the RW actually think these huge corporations are playing Santa Claus?? LOL

It almost sounds like: WOW! AREN'T they special?? OH the generosity! AH the Christmas spirit?

Because if so, I've got beautiful beachfront property to sell in Arizona.

Prove it. You are one of the biggest hacks here and your "opinion" means nothing.

No, what I see is a business that has seen a great deal of risk disappear with deregulation Trump has done, Plus risk of tax liability eased.

Which allows them the luxury of rewarding their employee for the suffering they had to withstand during the Obama economic era.

When they company gives the employees a bouns, that money comes from PROFIT that has already been taxed.

When the Employee gets the bonus the 1000 dollars is taxed again.

(This would create MORE REVENUE than less) OOPS.

And now the rest of the story. (I wish you could make type seem of a deeper tone.)

About the sudden generosity of AT&T, maybe not all that altruistic.

Quote:
Why it matters: It's a calculated move to get credit from GOP lawmakers and the White House as the Trump Justice Department sues to block AT&T's proposed $85 billion purchase of Time Warner.

Real talk: Both the employee payout and capital investment are both relative drops in the bucket for AT&T. The more than $200 million in bonuses the company will give out is far less than the $500 million breakup fee the telco would owe Time Warner if regulators block the deal.

Ok, i am sure that you are prepared to demonstrate how a business giving funds to their employees, acting on their own free will, from their own accounts is costing is costing the taxpayers anything much less adding to the national debt.

Wonderful.

There it is. It is obvious the employees would have been better off not getting anything. LMAO

Can you actually think of a better example of spoiled snowflake than the above post.
