As of now he has a 60% chance of impeachment. Hopefully him and his whole inner cabinet circle go with him. I do hope though before he gets impeached he passes that new 15% Corporate tax law reducing taxes for corporations by 20% so we can say that he did something positive for American businesses and corporations before he got the boot. He fired so many people that Karma is now out looking for him lol..

effects reducing corporate tax is that the government will have to accept increasing deficit or expand revenue form other sources. I say tax the diplorables; they will never know what is happening.

serious tho
Larger corporations, those now being taxed at the higher rate, will immediately benefit but the average joe will see very little good trickle down from this. The companies will simply keep the money.

Nah. Economists across the spectrum believe that a reduction in the corporate tax would be a good thing. Calling it "trickle down" means you don't understand.

The general idea is that lower corporate tax will produce more jobs...
this is the trickle down i speak of. it has been tried in the past.
nothing saying how the additional corporate revenue is spent. You can bet trump america will never see it.

At least with Pence, you know what you're getting. Just imagine had some Christian Televangelist like Reverend Jerry Fallwell ever became President. What would that Reverend's style of governing be? Well, that's how Pence will govern. And he will do it predictably. Consistently. No flip-flopping or reversing himself like Trump does every few days. No Bat-Shia-Crazy tweets from hell. He'll stick with his fundamentalist Christian convictions and use them as a consistent guiding principle. And all the other dissenters and critics can figuratively and Biblically "go to hell".

Again, at least you know what you're getting with Pence.

OBJECTIVE reality
Pence could at least be marginally better. He's a snake, too, but he'd provide four improvements:
  1. He'd be less of a loose cannon about dangerous situations like North Korea.
  2. He wouldn't play buddy buddy with Putin.
  3. He'd keep his ego in check. Unlike Trump, Pence wouldn't tell you that the sun shines brighter, the trees are greener, and the birds sing louder, all because of him.
  4. He just might keep the nepotism to a minimum. He wouldn't appoint Tiffany Trump as Surgeon General.
I do think that Trump's firing of Comey has increased his chances of impeachment considerably. I never thought he'd blunder his way into this situation so rapidly.

If I were a believer in secret cabals and so on, I'd wonder if this isn't the "Behind the doors" plan. You know, "Them" the New World Order, who apparently govern the globe to some Masonic/Illuminati agenda.

Get Trump in, shellshock the USA and rest of the world with his ******* craziness, impeachment follows swiftly.

And a snickering Republican Party hands Pence the key to the Oval Office Washroom.

Now all ultra-conservative agendas flow through smooth and swift.

No, it doesn't really make much sense to me either, but sometimes I just can't help wondering…

A VERY late edit: This is sarcasm people. Goodness! Some right wingers seem to think I genuinely believe this. SMFH.

arkitekt, the only flaw with your New World Order (Illuminati) conspiracy theory is that….. the Illuminati are far from Christian, so having them endorse an Ultra-Christian President will actually divert them from their goals.

In fact, it's been hypothesized that they (Illuminati/Masons/Templars) are an ancient cult of the Satanic devil-worshipping type. And not just any devil. Baphomet, to be precise! :p

True. I just threw them in as a "more the merrier" gesture.
But I take your point. :) Baphomet. Ah yes, now there was some serious a*se kissing. (Apparently);)

Economists across the spectrum believe a reduction in the corporate tax rate AND getting rid of special-interest deductions and tax subsidies, such that the overall federal revenue from corporate taxes remains the same or increases, is a good thing.

Many corporations currently pay less than 5% effective tax rate after all is said and done - "decreasing" the corporate tax rate to 15% while removing all their special deductions would actually be an effective increase for many companies.

No economist says that reducing corporate taxes alone, while doing nothing else with the tax code, is a good thing.
