There is no question that the new tax cuts were a home run for President Donald Trump, the Republican Party, Corporate American and many, many tax payers. Trump's approval ratings jumped from the low 30's to the 40 per cent range. There have been about 6 billion dollars in bonuses paid out by employers to their employees.

Depending on whose numbers you want to look at, it appears to be somewhere around 5% of the working populous. Also, most were one-time distributions with no promise of any future payments and some were replacements for bonuses that were already planned and budgeted.
