Miriam Pemberton writes: "The president and his party are now looking to add somewhere between $30 and $70 billion more in military spending to their budget for next year — on top of the increases for this year. Democrats seem willing to go along, with a few caveats.
Nobody seems worried anymore about adding to the financial hole we just dug for ourselves and our children with $1.5 trillion in tax cuts for the rich."

Do you know where your income tax goes? In a just world, it'd go to free and comprehensive healthcare and education. It'd go to free and affordable housing and restorative rehabilitation. It'd go to a universal living wage. Too bad we don't live in that world.
