Republican senators and representatives know their tax proposal is horrible for working Americans by robbing from the poor and giving to the rich, but they need to pay off their millionaire supporters.

I share Liz Pike’s sadness regarding the recent announcement of curtailing operations at the Georgia-Pacific paper mill in Camas.

In my opinion, her recent statement expanding on these feelings shows her to be reactionary and unqualified for public office.
