House Passes Corporate Pork

Remember, this tax cut boondoggle was passed with the assent of the White House.

The House bill includes measures tailored to help restaurant owners, makers of private jets, bank directors, timberland owners, liquor distillers, Native American whalers, commodity traders and shipping conglomerates, to name a few. One last-minute provision, pushed in part by Home Depot, temporarily lifts customs duties on Chinese-made ceiling fans.
Let's hope the conference committee isn't corrupt, like with Medicare.
