The proposed tax bill in the US Congress is 1,100 pages long of legalese. A majority of Americans are opposed to it even though they haven’t read it because we know it’s a bonanza for corporations & millionaires. Most of the senators haven’t read it either but will pass it because they’re mostly millionaires.

Observe that the trade union movement in its inertial, collusive state has not done one damn thing to oppose this bill even though working people & the poor will get it in the jugular. The crisis of leadership in politics is profound & has nothing to do with the two corrupt political parties.
