Negotiators between the House and Senate are busily trying to come up with a compromise bill that both houses can vote for.  We still have time to make a difference for the 99% instead of for the 1% and corporations.

Here are 7 differences requiring reconciliation between the GOP House and Senate tax bills.  See email & phone numbers for Issa below.
 
Keep the pressure on the FCC to save Net Neutrality!
