In 1981, President Ronald Reagan’s policy of reducing quotas on foreign shoemaking killed the local shoe manufacturing industry.

In 2013, the sales tax was extended to include newspapers and magazines. The legislators behind that destructive act have helped kill the papermaking industry here in the U.S.

Those greedy politicians should be identified by name and party and not be re-elected.
