    flawed thought process. If you can't come up with $400 for emergency visit they sure as hell are not getting that much in the tax cut...these are the people that elected Trump.

    Yea, a properly supported Obamacare could have been empowering to employees over time.

    Hence some of its opposition.

    It would have freed up a lot of employers to not worry about health care as well.

    New BLS report is out. It's not great.

    For all employees: Real average hourly earnings were unchanged, seasonally adjusted, from May 2017 to May 2018.

    For Production and nonsupervisory employees: From May 2017 to May 2018, real average hourly earnings decreased 0.1 percent, seasonally adjusted.

    And this is one of the problems with the general coverage of the tax cut. A lot of breathless reporting of anecdotes of companies providing one time bonuses to tiny minorities of the workforce that may or may not be as a direct result of the tax cut (thought it's certainly in the best interest of the large corps to market them as such). But when real data comes out that shows that on the whole, wages are actually DOWN year over year, not a peep from the media.

    Vern Buchanan bought yacht after voting for House version of GOP tax bill

    According to the disclosure, Buchanan spent between $1 million and $5 million purchasing an Ocean Alexander yacht on Nov. 16, 2017, the same day he joined 226 other Republicans and no Democrats in voting for the first draft of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.”
    Given his net worth and income, progressive group Tax March estimated that the bill would save him up to $2.1 million on his taxes.

    That’s most of the way to a yacht, which likely trended toward the higher end of the reported range given that Ocean Alexander’s least expensive model — the 70-foot 70E Motoryacht — has a base price of $3.25 million.

    ^

    ...While the tax plan was pitched as helping the middle class, it does so only minimally and temporarily if at all. For the nation’s highest earners and for corporations, however, it was a magnanimous change in policy...
    No shit.
