Sen. Jon Tester’s tweet about the passage of the Tax Reconciliation Act has gone viral, with more than 42,000 retweets, The Great Falls Tribune reported Saturday.

The video that accompanied the tweet showed the Montana Democrat’s displeasure with the bill, which passed the Senate by a 51-49 margin in a major legislative victory for President Donald Trump.

“I was just handed a 479-page tax bill a few hours before the vote,” Tester said in the video. “One page literally has hand-scribbled policy changes on it that can’t be read.”

2. Yes

I watched a Russian independent film, back in the day, it was titled "12". The jury process in Russia laughs at the "rule of law".

Massive democratic blue wave election in 2018 or democracy and freedom will be buried in this country forever.
