WATCH: Senator's Viral Tax Bill Video Exposes How Corrupt Politicians Pass Laws

• By Rachel Blevins

Both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate came together to pass a massive tax bill early Saturday morning, and one senator called out the hypocrisy on Twitter, noting that he was handed a nearly 500-page bill just a few hours before he was expected to vote on it—and it included pages of illegible hand-scribbled notes.

"Happy Holidays, everybody! It's the night we're going to be voting on the tax bill. I just got the tax bill 25 minutes ago.  This is the tax bill. See how thick it is. This is what it looks like. Oh, no, let's look at the bill—this is what it really looks like," Sen. Jon Tester said, as he held up a page filled with messy, handwritten notes. "I want you to take a look at this, folks. This is your government at work. Here's the bill as it's written. Here's the modifications that are in it. I can read one word."
