“Why don’t people with no money go buy stock and real estate? Why don’t poor people just buy more stuff?” – Mike Gonzalez
Hey, you got to figure out ways to spend all the money you have from cheating taxes, am I right? 🤷🏻♂️
There’s only 10 countries that will sell you citizenship. Here’s what it costs.
From the man so privileged, he has clearly never been to a grocery store
“You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID.”
This is why people hate Obamacare. It forces people to buy high cost insurance through private corporations that don’t cover services when you need them. #Medicare4All would cover everyone while keeping costs in check with price caps on medications, services, and procedures.
Waivers in “Buy American” laws provide large loopholes that permit government procurement from other countries. Our taxpayer dollars should be used to provide well-paying jobs here at home.
The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers writes that waivers to the laws should be eliminated.
When rich people get a tax cut, they buy stock and real estate.
When corporations get a tax cut, they repurchase their stock shares to inflate the price, increase CEO pay, and increase their dividends.
These people don’t suddenly hire more workers because they got a tax cut. They already have plenty of money, more money won’t suddenly make them hire you or increase your pay.
The only thing that increases the number of jobs is an increase in demand. And increase of demand is achieved when workers and average people have more money to purchase goods. Higher wages for workers = more demand for goods = more jobs This isn’t calculus, it’s economics 99
You know you’re out of touch when you think $1000 will buy a new car, take a family on vacation, or renovate a kitchen…
“If we allow a family to keep another thousand dollars of their income, what does that mean?” he asked. “They can renovate their kitchen. They can buy a new car. They can take a family vacation. They can increase their lifestyle.”
President Donald Trump’s chief economic adviser — Gary Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs president worth an estimated $266 million — appears to be completely clueless about what the average American family spends on a car, vacation or home improvement project.
In the latest demonstration that Russia controls Trump, Sec. of State Rex Tillerson is refusing to spend $80 million to counter Russian propaganda.
