The GOP’s Corporate Tax Cut Will Be a ‘Boom’ for the Economy

One of the most important provisions in the GOP’s plan for a tax overhaul is a big cut to the corporate tax rate. The legislation would slash the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent.

“That is huge,” Glenn said on today’s show. “If Trump signs this into law … you’ll see a boom to the economy.”

The bill passed in the Senate on Friday and next needs to return to the House for a vote. Republicans are under pressure to merge the Senate and House’s respective plans for tax reform before the end of the year.

GLENN: While you were sleeping in the early morning hours of Saturday, the Senate passed the final version of its tax bill. Senate voted 51-49, with Senator Bob Corker as the lone Republican against it. President big takeaway from the bill is the plan would reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent. That is huge. That is -- if that actually goes through and happens, if Trump signs this into law, you're going to see -- you'll see a boom to the economy.

Now, Trump apparently is already walking away from the 20 percent after the bill passed. He told reporters, you know, it could be 22 when it all comes out. It could also be 20. We'll see.

The difference between the two percentage points? $200 billion. The passage of the Senate tax bill is a step in the right direction, for the most part. But the House and the Senate still have to hash out the differences in their plans. Have no idea what the final version is going to be right now. But cutting the corporate tax rate is good. I wish he was giving money to, you know, everyday people as well. It's the hasty way Congress is dealing with bills now.

It kind of stinks of the Obama-era politics, passing bills in the cover of darkness at 2:00 a.m. on a Saturday. And only after the details of the plan are kind of released in a shady sort of way. Kind of like, I don't even know what they're voting on.

The Republicans are desperately trying to comply with Trump's demand to sign anything of substance by the end of the year. Not a good reason to pass a bill. But I'm hoping the bill will be good for the country. But thing is for sure: Unless we do something about it, Congress will continue to act as if we're all asleep.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
