Where: Apple Store • 815 Boylston St • Boston

Congress plays Santa Claus to multi-billion dollar companies like Apple while the rest of us get a lump of coal in our stockings.

Senator McConnell and Speaker of the House Ryan are pushing an unpopular and dangerous tax bill through Congress. If passed this bill will not only yield huge tax benefits to high rollers and giant corporations like Apple. In doing so it will drain critical funds from Medicaid, education, housing, food programs and even Medicare.
