An article recently appeared in The Daily News about U.S. Rep. Herrera Beutler extolling the big tax breaks coming to most of us from the GOP income tax rewrite last December.
Rep. Herrera Beutler proudly stated that she voted for this bill and worked to see it pass. The trouble is that this bill provides only temporary relief for the working/middle class voters, while the tax breaks for corporations and the rich have been made permanent.
Actually, Herrera Beutler has, by design, avoided personal contact in any of her "town hall meetings" and she continues to rely on telephone town hall meetings, which permit her to control the conversations and avoid going into detail about her continued support of President Trump and his policies. I have to ask myself when was the last time that Rep. Herrera Beutler has spent any appreciable time in a face-to-face conversation with those of us she purportedly has been elected to serve.
Honestly, I am not surprised that she has continued to vote, with few exceptions, with Mr. Trump's plans for America. Considering all the circumstances, I urge all of us to vote for Carolyn Long as a replacement.
