This article summarizes the tax bill saga. Now all that’s left is the kabuki dance culminating in the final passage of the abomination.
What can we do now? The best advice I’ve seen is in the lyrics to Stan Rogers’ Mary Ellen Carter:
And you, to whom adversity has dealt the final blow
With smiling bastards lying to you everywhere you go
Turn to, and put out all your strength of arm and heart and brain
And like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again.
Rise again, rise again - though your heart it be broken
And life about to end
No matter what you've lost, be it a home, a love, a friend.
Like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again.
