Lots Of Pork In That Cliff Bill
Asparagus, rum, and racetracks all got big breaks in the New Year's Day Fiscal Cliff bill. Congress might have caught itself from falling over the fiscal cliff Tuesday, but the deal comes with a hefty price tag. With some things not to appeasing to State Senator, Jennifer Shilling.
Included in the $4 billion bill is an expiration of the payroll tax break, along with tax exemptions for everyone from the rum industry, to electric scooter riders, to algae and asparagus growers to NASCAR bigwigs.
