AT & T Employee $1k Bonus has nothing to do with tax reform. UPDATED WITH URL

This is in the Union Contract if AT&T meets it's goals.

We need to drug test all taxpayers that receive tax credits or deductions

As Senator Grassley has said the American worker just uses tax breaks and credits to buy booze and drugs, so taxpayers should be tested twelve times a year at their own expense otherwise they get no breaks in their taxes in April.

It's unbelievable that a 32 year old man would try to date and molest a 14 year old girl.

But it happened. She is also not an accuser but a victim of Roy Moore.

Does the new Republican Tax Plan eliminate the Earned Income Tax Credit for low income?

I haven't heard anything about this.

Conservatives upset about $666B US deficit under Trump

If the tax cuts go through the annual deficit will be $1.2T per year.

Kiss the Boys Goodbye. Internet Prices will skyrocket

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20171004/09404038343/wall-street-predicts-apathetic-regulators-limited-competition-will-let-comcast-double-broadband-prices.shtml

Wall Street predicts that cable giants like Comcast will soon be cashing in on the one-two punch of rubber stamp regulators and an ongoing lack of competition in the broadband space. Under the Obama administration, regulators turned a blind eye to the fact that cable giants like Comcast were taking advantage of a lack of competition to impose arbitrary and unnecessary usage caps and overage fees. Under the Trump administration that apathy has ballooned ten fold, with the looming assault on net neutrality only green lighting Comcast's ability to use those fees to raise rates and hamstring streaming competitors.


I'm on a fixed income. I have already gotten rid of Cable TV. I live in a rural area in a apartment that doesn't have any outside antenna so I can't get over the air channels. I just moved into my area and there is only one cable company that provides Internet and I have a 12 month discount of $40 per month, but the price goes up to $70+ after that. My apartment complex does not have any land line telephone unless I pay $100+ in installation fees so I can't get DSL at $55 per month. But the DSL speed here is 1.5MBps down and 100k up.

It appears that the Internet and TV is only for the middle class and wealthy.

Medicare for all will be a long campaign

Talking to neighbors and friends about the advantages to everyone will slowly convince people. Canada was able to implement their health care plan by people talking about the advantages of single payer health care. We will also need to eliminate the price gouging of modern medicine and pharmacology that says if something costs $5,000 to produce but saves a million dollars then the creator can charge $950,000 for the service or drug. Companies are allowed a fair profit, but not at a cost of a your money or your life medical health care.

Joel Osteen Sails Luxury Yacht Through Flooded Houston To Pass Out Copies Of Your Best Life Now

http://babylonbee.com/news/joel-osteen-sails-luxury-yacht-flooded-houston-pass-copies-best-life-now/

HOUSTON, TX—Although Joel Osteen took flak over the weekend for closing up his church to flood victims and all but disappearing during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the megachurch pastor reportedly returned to the city on his luxury yacht “S.S. Blessed” to make amends Tuesday by tossing copies of Your Best Life Now to stranded flood survivors.


Will the Tea Party Patriots Stand up for smaller government in Houston?

I'm sure none of the patriots will accept any government aid or use government flood insurance in Houston, Texas.

We need to have Medicare for all not another band aid law.

We can have Medicare for all. Each employer that has an employee would pay a manadotory $11k calendar year for each employee they have. If an employee works 1 hour a calendar month then the employer would have to pay the tax/fee. Everyone would pay a flat 3% tax on all income no matter the source. Present FICA taxes would remain the same. If someone wants to buy health care or insurance on the open market that is fine but the tax is still required.
YMMV. IMHO.
