Think _____'s Carrier Deal Was So Great? Think Again ....

Don’t get taken in by all the smoke and mirrors, and the rightwingnut GOP turn of phrase, that President-elect Donald _____ somehow “forced” Carrier A.C. to keep 800 jobs in the United States by handing them a colossal $7 million tax break.

See, while 800 jobs were saved, Carrier is still sending 1300 jobs to Mexico.

And that tax break that was promised to Carrier if they saved some of those jobs? That seven million dollars? Yeah, that will be paid for by the people of Indiana, and now, under a President _____, every company in America will simply threaten to move jobs out of the country and be granted a huge tax break ... paid for by the American people.

Yeah, it doesn’t sound so good now, does it?

Now _____ is apparently setting his sights on another company, via Twitter, of course:
“Rexnord of Indiana is moving to Mexico and rather viciously firing all of its 300 workers. This is happening all over our country. No more!”
But let’s also be clear that these 800 jobs _____ ALLEGEDLY  saved—while watching 1300 go away—is nothing compared to the fact that, under Obama, the United States has generated about 200,000 jobs a month; in fact, under President Obama’s watch the U.S. economy has added 8.6 million new jobs—that equals roughly 3,000 Carrier deals, every day, every single day, for the next eight years, so, yeah, _____lodytes, cut the bragging.

And please remember that, if President _____ manages any more elf these so-called miracles, he’s doing so on the hard work started by Barack Obama because _____’s inheriting an extremely stable economy and government.

So, before y’all get up and excited about this deal, remember, that Carrier is still sending a majority of jobs to Mexico in exchange for a tax break paid for by the people of Indiana, including some of the folks that Carrier fired.

JFC!!! (That's the son of god with an F in the middle...) Every time I read about this, I blow a gasket. And now I 'm all out of gaskets. So, give Carlos a hug from me and get one back ... also from me. That's all I've got right now!

That Carrier deal was nothing more than political fluffing and you can bet we will be hearing about it for the next 4 couple of years.

And let's not forget the tie and hat Trumpelstiltskin range that is made in China, along with little Ivanka's cheapjack clothing line!

And that's before you get to the Trumpelstiltskin Baseball cap for your Christmas tree; a mere $180, that IIRC was made in China too.
