To the Editor:
After reading the article about Sen. Dick Durbin’s visit to McHenry County to warn us about the dire consequences if the Republican tax bill were to become law, I wondered the how long has it been since he last appeared in this dangerous Republican stronghold?
Does he think the current tax plan is just fine? Apparently, eight years of a weakening economy hasn’t been felt in the halls of Congress. What is the proposal of the Democratic Party to reduce the tax burden on most Americans, especially the middle class? Their plan is just the opposite of that being proposed by the conservatives, who finally are listening to the mainstream voters. I’m astonished that their only plan is: Block everything and vote us back in power.
