2017 Letters to the editor stock

Congress was designed by the Constitution to represent the citizens of the United States. How dare Mitch McConnell say Democrats will not be involved in the tax-revamp discussion.

When one party rules and makes all the decisions, it's called a dictatorship. This is the kind of oppressive leadership that inspired the Boston Tea Party.

Any insignificant tax cut the Republicans in their wisdom and charity give to us taxpayers will be offset by all the takeaways in benefits. How else can you pay for the huge tax cuts for the super 1 percent?

The worm will turn, and Mr. McConnell will be screaming in the halls of Congress just as we the lower and middle class taxpayers are screaming now.

Marcel Thomas, Hobart
