Quote Of The Day -- What's That Word Again?
"Join me in a thought experiment. Imagine that the legislature of some other country — Brazil, say, or Mozambique, or Thailand — decided to rewrite the tax code, with no public hearings or expert testimony, in a way that benefited the rich overall, with maximum financial gain for businesses like that of the sitting head of government. What would you say?
I’m pretty sure you’d use the word corruption. And you would be right." -- Eugene Robinson, on the self- dealing corruption evidenced by the Trump/ Republican wealthfare bill.
