CORPORATE PORK….Good editorial in the New York Times today about the egregious tobacco deal struck in the Senate on Thursday. If anything, they’re a little too easy on the almost parodic corporate tax bill this is all attached to, but they basically make all the right points. It’s hard to think of anything Congress could have done to make this tax bill even worse than it already was, but they have. Between the Medicare bill, the energy bill, and this bill, the 108th Congress has surely distinguished itself as one of the most debased in recent history.
