The whole idea of voting someone into a second term as President of the United States is that the people of this great country of ours think that whoever the sitting chief executive is has done a good enough job in the first four years that we are going to sign him up for what is essentially a contract extension.
You see it all the time in sports, a starting pitcher on a baseball team does a good job in the middle of a three year contract and the team signs him to a contract extension before the first contract is even close to expiring.
CNN is completely and totally aghast at the idea that there are people in the country that want Donald Trump for a second term as president. For their own interests, they are doing what they are supposed to do otherwise those envelopes under the door in the middle of the night from Hillary’s friends will stop showing up.
CNN’s Allyson Camerota expressed her concern about how the tax breaks for Americans will harm the Democrats chances of winning in the mid-term elections with Michigan’s Democrat Congresswoman Debbie Dingell.
Camerota appeared somewhat panicked, as she started out her segment whining to Dingell about bonuses and pay raises that Americans will receive as a result of Trump’s GOP tax bill: “Just, ever since the tax reform was announced, or the tax overhaul, or whatever you want to call it, there have been this whole slew of companies that have come forward and saying, ‘Guess what? We’re going to give out bonuses, now, to our employees.’
“I mean, I have just a partial list in front of me, and there’s nine companies on here from AT&T, to Boeing, to Comcast, Bank of America, Sinclair, Wells Fargo, PNC. There’s all sorts of companies that say they’re going to give something to a thousand dollars worth of bonuses to their hundreds of thousands of employees. Fifth Bank Corp is gonna boost the minimum wage to $15 per hour. Obviously, they could have done this before the tax overhaul was announced.”
“They were sitting on profits. But they didn’t, they did it when the tax overhaul was announced. And I’m wondering if you, as a Democrat are you worried about the wind in their sails? People vote with their pocketbooks. I don’t have to tell you this. So if you get a thousand dollar bonus, you’re voting for Donald Trump again.”
Although Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) voted against the tax cut bill, she smartly responded to Camerota’s question by saying that she’s “never going to complain that any working man or woman will get an extra boost in their, uh, income.” Dingell then told Camerota that at some point a lot of people are still going to see a tax increase at some point. Camerota interrupted her to say, “Years from now—Years from now! Well after the mid-terms. So couldn’t this carry Republicans through the mid-terms?”
