Last week, Rep. Steve Daines, R-Mont., voted in favor of the sequester and endorsed the devastating cuts that will eliminate 750,000 jobs nationally, force furloughs and negatively impact our everyday lives by cutting funding for vital educati on and public safety programs right here in Montana.
Rep. Daines voted to stick with wealthy corporations instead of standing up for the hardworking Americans that he is supposed to represent. We shouldn't stand for this anymore — Rep. Daines should take action to reverse these cuts.
The simple solution to reverse the sequester is to close the corporate tax loopholes and use that revenue to pay down our national debt or invest in our communities.
Rep. Daines, it's wrong to allow companies such as GE and Facebook to cash-in their tax rebates on billions of untaxed dollars in profits while simultaneously laying off teachers, firefighters, national park employees, and other middle class workers who are the backbone of our state.
