Some 28 groups representing tens of thousands of Maine residents have joined together to issue a request to Senator Susan Collins (R) to vote NO on the GOP tax bill. A vote is scheduled for Tuesday. These groups represent constituents who are concerned about the inordinate amount of tax breaks for wealthy corporations and individuals on the backs of the middle class. Karin Leuthy, of Suit Up Maine, states “Only 29% of Americans approve of this tax bill because it will increase taxes and result in the loss of health care for millions of people. Senator Collins knows her constituents have educated themselves about this bill and resoundingly oppose it. We are asking her to vote no.” Read the full statement here.
