In identity as a job creator so the government can't tax me.

*I identify

The unemployed need to be punished for not working silly, the money corporations get from tax cuts won't be divested into shareholder's pockets, bonuses, or investments into BRICS countries, it all goes to good American jobs.

The result of this tax bill is going to make the 2007-2008 financial crash look like child's play. I can't wait, tbh.

Rubbing the economic crash in his face will almost make this worthwhile.

Oh I don't care who gets blamed for it, I just want to accelerate the heat death of this fucking awful country.
