Sen. Sanders' angry Americans: What if they knew about the corporate tax holiday?!
I'd planned to talk about the new evidence for election hacking during the 2004 Ohio vote but will, for the moment, defer to the discussion of that topic in the Jonaothon Turley Blog post, Dead Men Do Tell Tales (Of Rigged Elections).
Instead, I want to let the ever-so-sensible Senator Bernie Sanders describe in his ever so rational way about how angry Americans are, and why.
First, though, I want to be sure that anyone who's missed it, understands what seems to be among the most blatantly outrageous parts of the debt ceiling deal being discussed on TOP OF the insane demands of tea party gangsters.
I've been absorbed and missed the coporate tax holiday the first time it was raised by Matt Taibbi, so, I am only now beginning to understand the question Taibbi's raised again: Have we all lost our minds?
There is growing talk of giving corporations a tax holiday while....
We’re seriously talking about defaulting on our debt, and cutting Medicare and Social Security, so that Google can keep paying its current 2.4 percent effective tax rate and GE, a company that received a $140 billion bailout en route to worldwide 2010 profits of $14 billion, can not only keep paying no taxes at all , but receive a $3.2 billion tax credit from the federal government. And nobody appears to give a shit. What the hell is wrong with people? Have we all lost our minds?
We're being held hostage by the Gangsters On Parade as their radical Koch-overdosed Tea Partiers try to extort from the rest of us, as much Medicare and social security as they can? And there's talk of a corporate tax holiday?!
Take it away Senator Sanders, I want you to be President, now!
