    Benefits like merger acquisition? That may be good for some of the small business owners who don't mind early retirement, but not good for the consumer/worker and economy as a whole.

    Other corporations are expected to use the windfall to increase mergers and acquisitions (M&A) or invest in automation. “Industry executives have been eagerly anticipating tax reform in earnings calls, interviews and casual conversation all year. Multiple CEOs have projected major M&A activity will follow if any kind of corporate rate reduction is finalized, further accelerating the rapid pace of consolidation in the industry,” wrote one industry publication about how waste companies are anticipating tax reform.

    My opinion is they will pay a price in 18. But they still walk away with their pensions, and many in red States will be relected & carry on with the screwing of the people.
    The idiots will think this is a great idea even as they get laid off, can't afford college for their kids, medicine for themselves and housing in nice neighborhoods. Then, they'll jump up and blame liberals. After all, we saw them do that the last time they lost their jobs, houses and medical coverage.

    I beg to differ- The R Party went thru a period of tired on being lied to, broken promises and such. Much the same happened in the Dem Party with Bernie's run.
    Trump promised health care- as in fixing the ACA - what have we seen? He promised not cuts to Social Security-Medicaid- Repubs planning significant cuts to pay for tax cuts.
    Promised Infrastructure- yet where will the funds come from with an additional - 1.5 or possibly 2 T increase in the deficit over 10 years.

    Polls have repeatedly shown the majority of Americans are not in favor of this cut for the wealthy.
    As they see what they receive, what they will lose in 2024/2025, along with loss of HCare, jobs lost in the rural community related to HCare.
    Promised wage increases and massive investments from Corps- well that ain't gonna happen - from share buybacks, share splits, increased dividends and high on the list is paying down Corp debt.

    Add in Repubs were deficit hawks, add in they really kept no promises, add in women voters openly disgusted with the Moore debacle, Bannon's promises to support Primary challenges. 18 election Will be interesting.
    I doubt Rep Town Halls will be anything but happy and quiet.

    Dems only need 20 or so to cause gridlock in the House- with the Freedom Caucus (approx. 30)as we have seen, they have a hard right wing belief. So if Ryan remains as Speaker, or whoever replaces him, they will need Dems cooperating to pass anything.

    Lastly the debt increases are not sustainable.

    As long as Republicans can get their idiot followers to focus on abortion, gays, guns, and God---no one will pay attention to them picking their pockets.

    Unfortunately, this is probably an accurate assessment.

    Where companies' new tax savings will likely go
    the majority will go to executive compensation, shareholders, and automation, same as unexpected profits during a good year.

    we are nearing retirement. my wife and i are counting on the dividends to supplement our social security checks so we can continue our current lifestyle. i wonder how many other people use them basically the same way?

    not just the .1% own stock and get dividends....regular people do too
    This is what I find weird about the argument over taxes. Some seem to think the rich simply sit on their money not doing anything with it. They are taking that money and investing it into other companies and funding innovation that drives humanity forward.

    The bottom 60% account for 2% of the federal income tax. Whatever happened to paying a fair share?

    Tell me again who voted against cutting taxes? It seems Democrat politicians are the ones who want to keep their hands on your wallet.

    Precisely. Both the WSJ and Fortune polled CEO's. Less than 25% said they would use the new tax bonanza to expand/hire.
