I would imagine Met Life recieves lots of Favorable Tax Treatment because they are after all JOB CREATORS.I`m afraid that Americans have been sold a Phoney Bill of Goods.The Job Creators are constantly doing Mass Layoffs.
You are 100% right.Consumers with disposable income, not consumers who are underemployed and struggling with Student Loans that put them 30 to 50 Thousand Dollars in debt for Degrees that didn`t earn them an EXTRA NICKEL.Perhaps All those Minimum Wage Jobs that are being Created will provide enough disposable income to pay our Heating Bill. Just Vote Republican THEY LOVE the Right To Work States, every single benefit goes to the Employer and the Employees are Almost Slaves Just like the Republicans Want. Remember This, NO ONE HAS LESS POWER THAN THE POOR, And People Families, Seniors have been Slipping into poverty By The Millions for TEN YEARS. Think it`s an accident?
