Congress for sale

They're gifts, I tells ya, gifts!

Last week the Senate passed a tax subsidy of $25 billion for home builders and industry figures who have suffered economically during the housing crunch.

As the WSJ points out:

“This giveaway came only a few weeks after the National Association of Home Builders threatened to suspend their PAC contributions to Congress “until further notice” – meaning until they saw more return on their political investments. Congratulations. That gambit paid off big time….At least this exercise is making clear what Democrats really mean by tax “fairness.” It means raising tax rates so they can then sell tax breaks to the highest corporate bidder.”
