Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. (Isaiah 10:1-4)
A tax cut bill referred to by the majority of the people in this country as a scam to benefit billionaires.
A tax cut bill that will curtail abortion rights.
A tax bill that will make drastic cuts to health care programs for both seniors and children, and one notable provision will make expensive chemotherapy agents unaffordable for most seniors again. It’s worth noting that Senator John McCain, who is currently receiving such chemotherapy, is voting for the bill.
Lobbyists are crafting the bill behind closed doors, sending copies to senators only hours before they are scheduled to vote on the almost 500-page act.
This is the fate of democracy once it falls into the hands of the billionaire class. Congressmen and women can be purchased like whores on the street, purchased to do their master’s bidding, and those entrusted to protect the lives and liberty of those they would pretend to represent have now turned on their constituents in one of the most brazen betrayals in history.
And all this aided and abetted by a “news” organization – Fox News – started by a malicious foreigner and funded by billionaires for almost thirty years.
They have purchased the death of representative democracy in America.
May we rest in peace.
