Common Sense Taxed

With another tax bill that primarily benefits the rich passed today, this one worth $69 billion, one can only wonder how in the face of a mounting deficit and unfathomable war costs, Republicans can continue to cut taxes for the wealthy. They need to pay for that all-important security fence, after all.

It's not just that Republicans love rich people, or don't care about the future. Sure, those things are mostly true, but average people who salivate over the phrase "tax cut" every other November are just as much to blame. Your local Republican senator will now go around thumping his chest about how he cut taxes. Meanwhile if you make less than $75,000 a year, he saved you about 100 bucks or less. That'll get you about 3 extra tanks of gas.
