The Senate passed a bill late Tuesday night that gives corporations an $8 billion tax break and rewards banks with $5 billion for dodging taxes on overseas profits earned in 2014. The 113th Congress, the least productive in history, closed its final session by giving Wall Street yet another Christmas bonus after they spent the last two years handing lumps of shit to veterans with PTSD, children on food stamps, and workers struggling on poverty wages. Share to spread their SHAME!

So when does the American Worker & taxpayer get bailed out? When will our veterans waiting for treatment get the care they need? When will you RISE in opposition for yourself & future generations?

I was surprised by how many people did not know this. Awareness of your universe.
