Nice timing.

From the Free Beacon:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Wednesday attacked AT&T by name for not passing along tax savings to its employees immediately after the telecommunications giant announced that it would do just that.

[…]”I love the example of AT&T,” he said. “Over the last ten years, AT&T has paid an average tax rate of eight percent a year. They have 80,000 fewer employees today than they had then.”

“Tax breaks don’t lead to job creation,” Schumer continued. “They lead to big CEO salaries and money for the very, very wealthy.”

Wells Fargo and Fifth Bank Bancorp both said Wednesday they’re going to raise their minimum wage to $15 as a result of the tax bill passing. Fifth Bank said they’ll also pay out $1,000 bonuses to around 13,500 employees.

Comcast also announced they’ll pay out $1,000 bonuses to over 100,000 employees due to the tax bill and the repeal of net neutrality.

While it’s true AT&T is looking to merge with Time Warner — against the will of Trump’s DOJ — Trump is acting as a union boss on behalf of American workers to pressure these companies into giving higher pay.

      • Mayday911us

        Well that was more of a rhetorical question.

        you may want to stop The period nonsense because a particular group uses that and you don’t wanna be branded as such.

        • roger

          yes, and it received the only answer it deserved. brand away, I have completely run out of shits to give.

          • Mayday911us

            Wow so go with that.

        • darkhorse

          what group?

          • Mayday911us

            Well if you actually read The comments from the beginning then you might actually understand something.

          • darkhorse

            I did, you moron — so hostile for absolutely no reason…personality disorder?

          • Mayday911us

            Well if you can’t keep with the whole conversations keep out of it.

            You can say you did but let’s go back to the first comment and go there. Because going what group is it even part of it.

            But because you didn’t you have to go to name calling and insults because you have no clue what you’re typing about.

            If you think that’s hostile to bad. Congratulations if you think you actually understand psychology you don’t.

            So thanks for playing come again.

            Because most don’t understand that you have to look behind the meaning of.

          • darkhorse

            you are a hostile idiot… probably paid to troll… can’t find a normal job?

          • Mayday911us

            I’m sorry you can’t keep with the whole conversation or understand it.

            Your period nonsense is done by people that don’t have a clue in general.

            Boy I was wish I was paid for my comments but I’m not.

            Yes I have a job that I enjoy doing at points doing this I do for my own personal amusement.

            But I see everything goes right over your head because you don’t have a freaking clue. I know it has to be hard to go through life like you.

            Now I have to explain it to you because you can’t seem to grasp an incredibly simple concept.

            As in the first comment was what is Chucky going to give his staff a bonus as to the story. Yes that’s an incredibly difficult concept for you to understand.

            Now getting into the rhetorical question that with someone else. You may want to pick up a dictionary and grasp that concept. But I hope you can see putting you’re too sensing where didn’t belong.

            Now to you has nothing to do with groups. See the concept of not reading everything when you say you have which the correlation of you haven’t comes to mind.

            But this may be too difficult for you don’t understand. Because you also missed the concept thanks for playing come again.

            With the Hidden meeting behind it is why even replying to it shows everybody see your stupid you are with nothing to back it up.

            But thank you for my amusement now my I give a da*n filter needs to be changed.

            So thanks so much for playing come again.

          • darkhorse

            what do periods have to do with knowledge? See, that was such an idiotic comment I did not continue reading…I don’t waste my time on HASBARAs and fools…

          • Mayday911us

            Well let’s see it’s used by the incompetent morons the leftists.

            Pushing there incompetent ideology. See so hard for you to comprehend.

            Well congratulations 15 minutes or you’re what worthless Life that you never get back.

            Because all you can come back with is your pointless drivel.

            But why are you replying oh that’s right see the first statement.

            But thank you for replying because you prove my point and use the period Nonsense. Try something else I know it’s difficult to come up with something for yourself.

            But thanks for trying come again.

          • darkhorse

            2nd sentence…”there” should be THEIR… you’re semi-educated, I see… it shows. Do you get as much a 5 cents per click? Wow…

          • Mayday911us

            Oh thanks you grammar Nazi let’s pointed out your period nonsense doesn’t make you look any more intelligent.

            But thanks for pointing out that you’re a moron or a leftist.

            It actually makes you look like a bumbling idiot. But thanks for replying you prove my point constantly.

            But again you’re missing the point I do that for my own personal amusement because You keep replying then you complain that you don’t deal with it.

            So go run do your little safe space.

            Because the comment had nothing to do with groups It was your rhetorical question because you cannot grasp that concept.

            Sorry it’s too far down for you to read because you’re too lazy and incompetent going to be nice.

            So go cry to somebody that cares because it’s not me.

            So again thanks for trying come again.

          • darkhorse

          • Mayday911us

            But you put three things that are about Israel so is someone’s is a religious bashing person?

            Wow no more period Nonsense thats the easiest thing point out. So did you attempt to grow brain?

            So run off you little safe space because that’s the only place for you.

            So technically your group basher. See now you have your answer to what group.

            So good luck you all your endeavors which are going to be a joke by the way.

            Thanks for playing come with you.

            So keep proving my point.

    AT&T is a monopoly nearing if not now exceeding the size of the biggest telecommunications monopoly: Verizon. These two monopolies need to get broken up.

    • roger

      where were you in 1983?? when judge green broke up at&t.?

      • Fingal Carson

        Where were you when AT&T pieced itself back together and its bastard child Verizon became its own monopoly, too?

    • darkhorse

      and overtaken by We The People… also Con ED and this Zionist government. I didn’t get these things under the tree this Christmas but there’s another year ahead to make it happen!

  • SP_88

    Nice job Chuck. Tell us again about how these evil corporations are the ones robbing the people. And meanwhile, you can tell us how the democrats fighting against a tax break for the middle class is somehow a good thing too.
    The real thieves are in Washington.

  • Rich Hillegass

    There he is- the biggest asshole in the DNC, Chuckie Schumer!

  • da6675

    I don’t care for Schumer, he is an Israel Firster like Trump.
    Corporations and billionaires are getting massive tax cuts for no particular reason but greed. Loopholes were not eliminated for corporations, they were increased! There seems to be a kind of whistling-in-the-graveyard desperation for Trump supporters to turn this tax plan into a winner-winner-chicken dinner , but by fall elections the REPUBs will be frantically trying to show love for Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid, as the facts of this secret tax crime against the American people are exposed.

    Ugh! I just took a giant Schumer after that burrito supreme, then I wiped my HRC
