No, Sen. Collins, You Don’t Get To Cry Sexism After Destroying So Many Women’s Lives

This week, the Senate succeeded on partisan lines in passing a bill known widely as the “Republican Tax Scam,” a widely and unanimously decried piece of legislation that exploits the working class to expand the wealth of the top 5%, strips millions of people’s healthcare, and tanks the country’s economy while it’s at it, all at the service of the party’s wealthy donors.

Unsurprisingly, the bill calls for an increase in troops and military resources. The real shocker comes at section 335 of the bill, which recognizes that climate change is real—but only to justify military action and terrorize the Global South.
