Votes benefit the wealthy


Who is helping people with their taxes?

Not the Republican legislators. Not U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin nor Sen. Susan Collins, who both said “yes” to the latest Republican tax heist, which gives hefty tax cuts to the wealthy. Not Rep. Russell Black, or Rep. Lance Harvell, or Rep. Tom Skolfield, who all said “no” in 2016 to the Question 2 tax surcharge on the wealthy, which would have restored tax fairness in Maine.

Why are those five Republican legislators voting in ways that benefit the wealthy and shift the tax burden to their constituents and their children?

Shame on their votes.
