    8% effective tax rate, after loopholes and other tax dodges. So cutting the marginal tax rate would not save these employees’ jobs. It would funnel what had been an expense into the Revenue column. Lo and behold, magically increased revenue, end of the year stock price bump and Executive Bonus rescued.
    Merry Christmas, employees who will be at the unemployment office on January 6th.
