Celebs help get #CorkerKickback trending to stop the GOP tax bill

Background: Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee was the only Republican who voted against the GOP tax bill. He voted against it because he's against raising the deficit by the massive amount that the bill would require. But now that the bill has come back for a second round of voting, Corker says he will vote for it. What changed? Not the deficit raising part. What changed was the inclusion of a new provision that would give a few people, one of them Bob Corker, a massive tax break. The International Business Times, who broke this story, got a panicking Bob Corker to say that he didn't read the new bill, denounce the new provision and then walk back his denouncement. With Senator McCain out because of surgery, activists are calling out Corker in a last ditch effort to stop the tax bill. With the help of a few celebrities, #CorkerKickback is trending on Twitter as part of the campaign.
