*******************************

The Repatriation Bill in Congress falls way short!

Corporations have been crying for big tax breaks to bring their profits from other countries home. They are currently sitting on over two trillion dollars in domestic profits hoarded over the last few years.

Senators’, Kay Hagan, of North Carolina and, John McCain, of Arizona have introduced a new bill, The Foreign Earnings Repatriation Act, to allow multi-national corporations to bring over a trillion dollars in foreign profit back to the United States at a favorable tax rate. Too favorable!

The tax rate in the bill falls way short of what’s fair.

Let’s get Big Brother off our backs and out of our bedrooms!

The Republican mantra of smaller government may play well in Peoria but not in places where concerned and observant people gather.

What’s caused this huge divide?

“A Rush To Irrelevance!”

The rant against women was a new low in Rushbo radiology.

There’s nothing more disgusting than to listen to the misogynistic rants of a fat bigoted drug addict. But Rush Limbaugh’s recent series of rants, calling Georgetown law student a ‘slut’ and a ‘whore,’ are not only disturbing, but low even for him!

His attack on Sandra Fluke, the brave young woman who was refused the opportunity to testify by an uncaring, and basically ignorant, Representative Darrell Issa, (R-CA49) in the hearing he held on contraception, was not only uninformed, but incendiary.

Limbaugh is, indeed, a pimple on America’s ass.
