Nobody's Opinion

CEO’s : No Tax Reform…Help Texas You Greedy People!

Nobody Cares:

President Trump made a good speech on tax cuts today. It made sense. Cut taxes, get rid of loopholes, and make it simple again.

How LONG have we waited for that? Yes, waiting for it, and wondering if Congress is going to get THIS done.

After all, Obamacare was a HUGE tax on the American people, and we got nothing for it but misery.

Health care is destroyed. But no matter, the money keeps rolling in to them, doesn’t it?

After Trump’s speech I listened to Ken Langone, Co-Founder of Home Depot today on Neil Cavuto.

(Go to 19.00 in the video)

HE comes out with that great feel good mantra: “Forget the tax cuts.” America needs to take care of the people in Texas.

WTF? Since when?

Right. He would say that. Of course, looking at it from HIS point of view, the government handing out huge payments to people in Texas is like manna from heaven to him. Home Depot will make billions off the building that would happen. It’s government subsidies, and endless flood of profits, not to mention tax reform would probably hit him personally. HE would have to pay more.

Basically, even though he was pulling on patriotic heart-strings, he was saying that the rest of the United States needs to take it up the wazoo for Texas.

But why just Texas?

But what about all the other disasters we have? What about all the wildfires out West? The tornadoes that destroy sometimes whole cities? And floods? Just last March we had a big flood here in Missouri, and our basement flooded, and WE are on a hill. Insurance doesn’t usually cover floods on hills.

Like Texas, last March in Missouri, it rained here for a week, and like the people in Texas, it will take us more than a year to replace everything we lost. It was finished off: bedroom, bath, living room, office.

The point I’m making is disasters happen every year in the United States. It’s horrible for the people who get hit with it, but if the rest of the country doesn’t get tax reform, there won’t be much of a country left standing.

Texas will just look pretty until the next hurricane hits.

Now, I must admit: Ken has a point. If we didn’t send so much money to other countries we’d have the money for fixing such disasters. But heck, Congress can’t even fix our streets, they are too busy forking money out to build infrastructures in OTHER countries so that THEY can get Home Depots and Wal-Marts and MacDonald’s…

They just don’t tell you about it.

So, my suggestion is…fund money for the infrastructure of Texas. Fix the damns that broke, and flood proof it all. Start there. But giving money to replace the businesses and homes? Do you really think that’s fair to you and I?

It’s just another welfare program piled on top of all the others.

Sure, our hearts go out to anybody who loses their homes and businesses. But, there WILL be millions of dollars sent to help these people.

And that would be enough, IF it got to the people.

The trouble is: It never does, does it? Just ask Haiti. Bill Clinton gave Haiti about 10 percent of the money he collected to help the people of Haiti, the rest of the millions gathered help pay for Chelsea’s wedding and her $10 million dollar apartment in New York.

Watch and see if Congress doesn’t USE Harvey to ‘postpone’ tax reform.

WE must, tell them, once again:

Lower our taxes, and watch just how GREAT we can make Texas again…or else,..

You might want to think about the REAL flood that will be coming down on you.
