Opinion I just want this bill to have some fun (and help the rich avoid taxes)!

Kyrsten Sinema wants to make this bill slow down and embrace life, she says. She says she wants to close the carried interest tax loophole in the Inflation Reduction Act. But she says she'll vote against it and will torpedo the whole bill if it's not changed. She asks, "Why are you so staid and straightforward? Look at you, sitting there just closing tax loopholes for hedge funds! And you’ve got that across-the-board 15 percent tax on corporations. Don’t you know that corporations can sometimes be friends? Maybe you need to open up, actually, those loopholes, please! Think about who stands to gain from this bill: Lots of people! People! People who want to have a nice habitable planet in the future!

I don't know what life is all about, but it's too short not to do what you can to prevent wealthy corporations and private equity firms from paying taxes
