The Republican Party is no longer the conservative party. It is now the corporate party. Since the year 2000, thousands of lobbyists have taken over Congress with money and gifts, etc.
The tax reform bill under consideration in Congress favors the richest one percent, big banks, Wall Street and investors. For decades, America has been struggling to keep its head above water. The “corporate” party doesn’t care one iota about American families. Money is the bottom line and it doesn’t include the American family.
For too long, this nation has been dependent on the corporate world for energy, food, clothing, housing — everything connected to a person’s existence. I would call it a monopoly for the rich.
The cost of living goes up and the public has no control. Factories have gone overseas and products come back like they were made by very cheap labor.
The voters in Maine should demand that their senators and representatives in Washington, D.C., vote against the tax reform measures or any compromised measure as they have been presented.
