“After months of delay and relentless corporate lobbying, the Senate voted, 92 to 5, on Tuesday for a bill that would create $170 billion in new tax breaks for business while trying to crack down on a variety of tax shelters.”
92 to 5 means most Democrats voted for a $170 billion tax cut for businesses, in the middle of a war, with the money coming from OUR retirement savings.
Businesses get another $170 billion. WE get cuts in our Social Security.
This is why people vote Green. Not me, but, jeeze, on days like this I can understand the impulse.
