Liberal predictions of “Armageddon” and the “end of the world” following the passage of the GOP’s tax cut legislation may have been premature, with several giant corporations announcing bumped-up bonuses for workers after the bill was signed into law by President Trump.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s predictions of chaos and “death” were nowhere to be seen this holiday season, as large businesses such as AT&T, Wells Fargo, Boeing, and others vowed to kick-back their tax-cut windfall to American workers.
On Tuesday, aviation giants Southwest Airlines and American Airlines announced their plans to dish-out $1,000 bonuses to all full-time and part-time employees based in the United States, as well as their plans to donate upwards of $5 million to charity.

“We will be able to invest even more in aircraft and facilities, and we will be able to do so with even greater confidence about the future,” said American Airlines CEO Douglas Parker.
Users on social media were quick to point out the liberal fail this week, sarcastically saying, “But I was told tax reform would make thousands die!”
