Remember 2017 when you head to the polls

Print Article

Senator Tester (D-MT) received his 500-page copy of the millionaire’s tax reform act just a couple of hours before the Senate vote to pass it. How can anyone, Democrat or Republican, have enough time to study the contents in such a short period of time? This is just one more example of the dysfunction of our Congress. You or I would like to study a proposal before we make a decision of importance.

Added to this, we have an executive branch headed by an unqualified, lying, admitted sex harasser, who may shortly be forced to resign from his position as head of government. It seems that two of the three branches of our government are not capable of doing the peoples’ work. The ship of government continues to devolve into a ship of fools. Remember them the next time you visit a ballot box near you on Election Day.
