LIMBAUGH: News Of WALMART Raising Wages Due To Trump Tax Cuts Is “MIND-BOGGLING!”

RUSH: Now, folks, the news coming out of Walmart today is just mind-boggling in a couple of different ways. Now, what we’re looking at here, this is directly because of the Trump tax cut. It is exclusively attributable to the Trump tax cut.

Walmart has announced that it’s going to raise its starting wage to $11 an hour, and it’s going to give some employees bonuses following the passage of the tax bill. Walmart’s employees will reap the benefits of the recent tax law changes as the company raises its starting wage and distributes bonuses to eligible workers. And this is being done without any demand for raising the minimum wage. This is being done because of market forces. This is a great example of what trickle-down really, really is. And the story comes from CNBC. This is not a friendly-to-Trump website.

Walmart announced today that it will be increasing its starting wage rate for hourly employees in America to $11 and will expand maternity and parental leave benefits. They also will pay a one-time cash bonus to eligible employees of as much as a thousand dollars. Currently Walmart’s starting wage is $9 until workers complete a training program, then they get $10. The company is also creating a new benefit that provides financial assistance to its employees who are looking to adopt a child, giving them as much as $5,000 per child, to cover expenses like adoption agency fees, translation fees, and legal costs.

Not one union made this happen. Not one shred of liberal pressure. Chuck Schumer, Chuck Todd, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, all the Democrat unions leaning on Walmart had nothing to do with any of this happening. This is happening because of the corporate tax rate cut. Nancy Pelosi said what? “People are gonna starve because of this tax cut. This tax cut’s gonna go only to Big Business. This is typical Reagan trickle-down. Only Big Business is gonna get rich. The rest of the people are gonna starve.”

They are gonna be proven wrong on this at every stage and at every stage it will be provable and demonstrable that not one Democrat voted for this. And they think they’ve already won the House in 2018 this year. They think it’s a slam dunk because they think everybody thinks Trump cheated, stole the election, and they think they’ve convinced everybody to hate Trump, and they believe that everybody wants to get rid of Trump like they do.

And they think everybody hates Trump because Trump is boorish, because Trump is a pig, because Trump is impolite, because Trump is crude, because Trump has no taste. You know, all the reasons they hate Trump they’re transferring to you and everybody else and assuming that everybody hates Trump. And so the 2018 election is just a matter of time. It’s a fait accompli. They’re gonna be running against stories like this, economic confidence, consumer confidence is at an all-time high. The stock market seems to be breaking records every week.

And it is all attributable to the first year of the Trump administration and specific Trump policies and deregulation. And they think they’re gonna win the House on Trump hatred. They think that they’re going to win on negative partisanship. They think they’re gonna win because there’s more people that hate Trump that they can marshal to vote against him than they can convince to vote for them. The Democrats don’t have an agenda. The sole agenda the Democrats have is get rid of Trump however they can.
