my hero

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Senator Sanders (independent) is my hero: he proposes that the 700 billion USD bill should be paid by those who benefited the most out of the financial practices who brought US, and the world, in this crisis; specifically, he proposes an amendment tot the “bailout” bill: a rise of 10% on the income tax of […]
