Where are the Liberal Companies?

I was scrolling through the list of American businesses that have announced employee bonueses, wage increases, etc. after the Republican tax reform was signed into law. Something stands out… where are all of the liberal companies? Where is Google? Facebook? Twitter? Uber? Penzeys? Berkshire Hathaway? Microsoft? Progressive? GEICO? Apple? Etc.

Are the owners of these companies just going to stuff their tax savings in their pockets? Why aren’t they announcing plans to give that money to their employees? Or investing in their American facilities? Or giving some to charities?

Their absence is rather conspicuous.

    Absolutely!    With a big emphasis on Berkshire.

    What’s Dairy Queen going to give to their Kewaskum employees?

    Probably more than what anti-Semitic trolls contribute…

    “Probably more than what anti-Semitic trolls contribute…”

    And how much would that be?

    So far I have not heard from Bershire on that one.   Uncle Warren seems very stingy on that front.

    So all the huge liberal run companies are conspicuously missing and the second comment is what is a single DQ in Kewaskum doing? Very interesting.

    We got a troll, Bill

    “We got a troll, Bill”
    And his name is Paul!

    Bill, does it matter if it’s a big business, or a small business? This tax reform helps all size businesses. Trump and the Republican Congress made the promise that wages will increase because of it, which should impact all businesses.

    The troll was in the second comment.

    I can show you a $400++million local outfit run by “conservatives” who have not announced any compensation adjustments for their staff–and they are an LLC, so no question, they will benefit from the tax reduction.
