Greetings Webtaculators. This week, Congress decided it is not working for America. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
Why: Because the Senate Republicans barely passed a sweeping tax bill that will add $1.5 trillion in debt (there goes their debt ceiling concerns), will create a higher burden for the middle and lower classes in the long run, and will gut health insurance for millions of Americans. To top it off, Flynn plead guilty to lying to the FBI, and Trump all but admitted to knowing that Flynn lied. I am furious.
