Burr, Tillis fail constituents

Loading…

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

The actions of North Carolina’s U.S. senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, have once again proved rich, 1-percent donors trump those poor and middle class voters who gave them their offices in Washington, D.C.

Once again, the government of America is being sold to the highest bidder — the rich CEO donors of the corporations. Hard-working poor and middle class people once again will be paying more taxes, while the rich 1 percent say the tax money cut they receive will "trickle down" in order for them to increase workers' paychecks and create new jobs.

This theory did not work in the 1980s for the American worker and it will not work now! Once again, more jobs will go overseas, more jobs will be lost by the American workers, rich CEOs will get fatter paychecks and bonuses, corporate shareholders and Wall Street will get richer. In short, as in the 1920s, 1930s, 1980s and for the last few years, once again, the American workers will be shafted by the corporations of America.

Thank you, Sen. Burr for loving your rich donors more than your constituents. Thank you, Sen. Tillis for loving your rich donors more than your constituents. Let's make America great again for the 1 percenters in America. God bless the rich. As for the rest of us, good night and good luck!

Colin Kaepernick and Nike are here to make a statement — and I guess they are doing so since Trump has already tweeted something nasty about it.

The dynamic duo of Kaepernick and one of the most popular athletic brands in the world, Nike, released a new ad campaign centering on the phrase,…

As mayor of Greenville, I would like to express my appreciation to city employees and residents for their actions before, during and after Hurricane Florence. The storm was one that presented many challenges as it approached North Carolina, but the willingness of everyone in our city to come…

It’s been said times like these bring out the best in people. I know that to be true. Time and time again, as the people of eastern North Carolina are tested, we persevere. We rise above. We help our neighbors. We do what’s right.

I expected this to be the case as Vidant Health prepared…

On Sept. 13, someone wrote in Bless Your Heart that 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses don't salute the flag and 200,000 Amish do not stand for the national anthem, yet one black man kneels respectfully and all hell breaks loose.

I blame the media. They are the ones who showed the black man…

Many articles over the past year have shocked me to my core. One issue, however, is by far the most impactful. In August, over 300 priests were accused of adolescent sexual abuse by more than 1,000 victims throughout Pennsylvania. The astonishing number of cases is a concern that needs to be…

The citizens of Grifton have continued since Hurricane Floyd to go without power for several days after a hurricane due to Duke Energy not addressing the issue with its substation on Harvey Rouse Road.

This substation floods every time a storm hits our area because of an canal running beside the…

September is being used to bring awareness to students’ attendance in Pitt County. However, a simple policy change to “incentivize attendance” is not going to fix the attendance issue.

Being a graduate from South Central High School with a none-too-inspiring attendance record…

As "The Big Bang Theory" CBS juggernaut rolls into a record 12th season on Sept. 24th, most of the gang exploring mysteries of the universe have gone vegan, opting for plant-based eating.
