Trump’s Tax Cuts Boost Corporate Profits While Spurring Layoffs in St. Lucie County

By Cole Driver on September 18, 2019.

President Trump’s marquee policy achievement, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, appears to be primarily benefiting giant, multinational corporations, and ransacking communities across America, like St. Lucie County, Florida, which has experienced a staggering rise of layoffs since the bill’s passage in 2017.

In 2017, 263 employees of Liberty Medical -- once the largest private employer in Port St. Lucie -- were laid off as part of a deal to liquidate its assets. And in the aftermath of Trump’s tax cut, Liberty Medical was acquired by Cardinal Health, a mammoth multinational healthcare corporation and 14th highest revenue generating company in the United States. Cardinal Health proceeded to report an increase of $2.6 billion in revenue due to Trump’s tax bill while having laid off the former Liberty Medical employees in St. Lucie.
