More Proof of Another Republican Big Lie (“Tax Cuts for Corporations Will Boost Jobs and Help the Working Class”)

Remember what Republicans called the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”?

As you know (if you’ve been paying attention), the “Jobs” part of the Republican bill was a huge lie.

Corporations didn’t generally invest in their companies, their workforce, or create jobs. They spent BILLIONS buying back shares to boost the stock price (executives’ bonuses get a boost when the company’s stock price goes up).

Five companies blow $55 billion in Q1 to prop up their own shares.
