Tax protest planned

Dec 06, 2017

Rockland — Mid Coast Maine Indivisible will hold a protest Saturday, Dec. 9, at noon on Main Street in Rockland to oppose the proposed tax bill. The group, which has staged several protests in the area since the election of President Donald Trump in November 2016, argues the changes will hurt the middle class and that this is an example of "Grinchy" behavior from our lawmakers. They encourage people to come in costume as the Grinch; the Monopoly Man in top hat and tails (and they will have Chance cards to hand out); a poor person; Donald Trump etc. They will gather at the park by the Brass Compass at noon.

To the vocal critics - do you have any agenda for improving things beyond snidely chastising those who take action?  Or are you happy with what the federal government is doing in this tax bill?  It's especially interesting when the criticism applies to whatever is going on - people who stay silent are called lazy do-nothings and people who speak up and take action are called snowflakes.  What a way to act towards your fellow man.

Somebody needs to speak up for those who will be negatively impacted by the tax bill. Certainly no one but the 1% can depend on a Republican congress that votes hand-in-glove for their donors - not for their constituents.
