As I read The Columbian every day, I realize that the Republicans are fulfilling their promises to lower taxes and improve health care coverage. Oops! I got it wrong. They are increasing my taxes and degrading health care coverage to pay for large tax cuts for their multibillionaire friends. Sucker punched, again! Wait a minute! I didn’t vote for them. I’m sure all who did vote for them are very happy and reaping the rewards of blind loyalty.
