October 5, 2018 | While Americans were transfixed by Senate hearings over Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assaults, House Republicans quietly passed another enormous tax handout for the wealthiest Americans.

Round one of this giveaway cost $2 trillion. Round two is even bigger—it would explode the deficit by more than $3 trillion. And once again, it’s largely a giveaway to the wealthiest Americans—and could mean devastating service cuts for ordinary people.

America's new aristocracy lives in an accountability-free zone. David Sirota, the Guardian

  • ‘If there are no legal consequences for profiteers who defrauded the global economy into a collapse, what will deter those profiteers from doing that again?’
  • Accountability is for the little people, immunity is for the ruling class. If this ethos seems familiar, that is because it has preceded some of the darkest moments in human history
