St. Petersburg, FL - Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is poised to vote for the Republicans tax cut bill for the wealthy and corporations--a plan which will create conditions for the elimination of a wide range of public benefit programs--in exchange for a small increase in the child tax credit.

Protect the Arctic Refuge. The message illuminated Trump International Hotel sending a hard to miss directive to Republican leaders in Washington, D.C. currently rushing through the tax scheme. The plan seeks to offset tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate polluters with revenue from drilling in the Arctic Refuge’s coastal plain-- an area vital for the survival of the Gwich’in Nation, and one of the country’s last remaining wild places.

This dish drying mat is the new solution to the age-old tradition of placing dish towels on the counter when handwashing pots, pans, knives, and glassware. The design has a thick layer of foam between two layers of high-quality super-absorbent microfiber, meaning not only does it wick away moisture faster than a towel, it also holds glassware and other delicate items in place! Available in cream, black, gray, red, and black damask. Color selection varies by store.
