So I was going to write something completely different tonight, but it keeps coming up that Republicans tend to vote against the average people and for the wealthy, with the excuse that they ARE voting for what the people want. To that I say BULLSHIT!
I am of course speaking about the Representative who's seat I was attempting to run for, Bruce Poliquin of Maine.
Recently, he and 233 members of Congress voted to strip your Social Security trust-fund of 2.8 trillion dollars in an attempt to pass a balanced budget amendment., In other words, the US Treasury holds 2.8 trillion dollars in Treasury Bonds that was borrowed from the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for all the wars that we have been waging! Basically meaning that if for some reason the Treasury can't pay that back, we are bankrupt! He has, according to 538 tracking, voted for the 45 agenda 95.6% of the time. He has voted many times to abolish the ACA and not once to repair it. He voted for the tax scam that not only gave a trillion and a half dollars to the super wealthy corporations, added a trillion dollars to the national debt in the past year, but stripped 6 million people of their healthcare and caused premiums to rise upwards of 60% for others. He just voted yes on a bill to a repeal of guidance to protect borrowers from discriminatory markups on auto loans! This man does not belong in Congress! Likewise to all the other Republicans who refuse to accept the fact that certain kinds of socialistic programs work.
Pure capitalism is killing us, literally! There has to be a balance where the poor and disadvantaged have a chance at life. Otherwise, why bother? Just annihilate all of us and get it over with.
Your greed and non-caring is very obvious, Mr. Poliquin, and I for one am sick of it. If you can't have any empathy towards your fellow man, get the hell out of Congress! Go retire to your mansion by the sea and leave the rest of us alone! You are not doing any of us any good!
After that, may peace be with the good people and may the rest rot!
